Thank you for visiting the website of Freedom Baptist Church. As you browse our site, you’ll find plenty of information about everything that’s happening at Freedom. From an exciting children’s and youth ministry, a flourishing young adults group, as well as a caring group of senior adults, Freedom seeks to take the gospel and apply it to every age. From a blended style of contemporary and traditional music, a strong commitment to biblical preaching, and a desire to be a church that lives out our faith within our city, you’ll find a place here where you can feel welcomed, grow in your faith, and use your gifts to serve in various ways.
Everyone’s story is unique. Maybe you’ve never been to church and you decided to see what this is all about. Maybe you’ve felt it’s time to find a place where you and your family can get connected. Or perhaps you’ve always been involved in church and are searching for a place you can serve and worship. Whatever your background, this is a church where you’ll find loving arms, and a caring community, that will truly welcome you should you decide to be our guest.

We would like to invite all of our friends, family, and visitors to join us for a free family friendly evening together at the shelter here at Freedom. From 6:00-8:00 we will have food, games (we have a 9-hole disc golf course and a soccer field), hayrides, and a bouncy house for the kids. Please note! Depending on the weather and the number of helpers and children we may have all or only some the games, etc. We hold these events so that we can grow closer as a church family, and also to reach out and meet new people that may be looking for a church, or just looking for some friendship. If that’s you, please come and join us on Wednesday July 22nd. We will be grilling out and will provide drinks for everyone, if you’d like to bring a side or a desert, it’s totally optional. Also if you like softball, bring your bat and glove, weather permitting there will be a game going on then also. Hope to see you there!

The April 20th Wednesday night Bible Study at Freedom is cancelled. Pastor Kris has asked everyone to visit Seven Mile First Baptist Church’s revival.
If you want to car-pool or caravan to Seven Mile First Baptist Church we will be leaving Freedom at 6:30 pm.
If you want to drive directly to Seven Mile First Baptist Church take US 127 North out of Hamilton, thru New Miami, to Seven Mile. After you leave Seven Mile the church will be on the left about 1/2 mile North of Seven Mile. If you reach St. Rt. 73 turn around as you just missed the church.
Friday, March 25th is Good Friday, this is the day recognized by believers all over the world as the day that Christ gave himself for our sins on the cross. It is a day where believers everywhere pause with amazement and gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice that Christ made to redeem those who by faith look to Him. Here at Freedom, we will be gathering together to remember this ultimate act of love.
We will be having a special service at 7:00P.M. called a Tenebrae service. This is a Latin word which means, “shadows” or “darkness.” This is a time where we reflect and meditate upon the final hours of the life of Christ as we hear the story from the Gospel of John.
Generally this is a brief service, no more then 20-30 minutes long. It was very well received last year, and so, we look forward to once again gathering together for worship this year. Everyone is invited, and we hope you will join us on Good Friday.
Our men’s group began “Experiencing God” February 16th and will continue meeting Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. at FBC.
Beginning March 1st, the ladies will begin the Beth Moore study “Children of the Day” at 7:00 p.m. at FBC.

I am excited to let everyone know that Freedom now has another way for anyone to quickly and easily make online donations to the church. Going away on vacation? No problem.

This totally secure service gives you the flexibility to give online via credit card, debit card, or electronic check. There is even a mobile app that can give you one click giving. Best of all, you can set up a reoccurring gift that comes out each time you designate, or make individual donations anytime you’d like. With so much flexibility, we hope you will take advantage of EasyTithe for all your future giving. You will still receive a full tax deductible report at years end to claim for your donations.

I would like to take a moment, to thank everyone who participated in, or came out to our first Cruise-in here at Freedom on Saturday, September 12th. Despite some overcast skies and cooler temperatures, we had around forty cars entered, and a large number of visitors throughout the day. We were able to award several trophies with top honor’s going to a beautiful 1969 Camaro. Rockin’ Rick provided us with good music for the event, and Beach Burger set up to sell their tasty sandwiches which everyone enjoyed. Our youth group also was able to raise donations for their upcoming mission trip to Panama City, and best of all, we collected many food items for the New Life Mission. I would also like to thank those who donated to the event: Valvoline Instant Oil Change, Fairfield Automotive, McDonald’s, Meijer, and Walmart. Given the success and great turnout from this event, I believe this will become an annual event. If you have suggestions, or if you attended the event, drop me an email and let me know what you thought. Thanks again to everyone who made the day so enjoyable and such a success.
