THE FREE WILL BAPTIST DENOMINATION
The Free Will Baptist denomination is a fellowship of evangelical believers united in spreading the witness of Jesus Christ and the building up of his Church throughout the World. The Free Will Baptist Denomination has a unique relationship with the local Church; it allows each church to be self-governed, but at the same time unites the local church under one movement to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to the world.
The basic doctrine:
- That salvation was received by faith.
- That salvation was provided for all men.
- That salvation is a personal choice because it is God's desire that all men be saved.
Today the movement has grown into the 17th largest denomination. Free Will Baptists have over 2,600 churches in 44 states and are involved in mission outreach in 10 countries. Free Will Baptists have their headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as a college and publishing company.
