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. Take a moment to check out the rest of our site, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me any time.
In His service,
Pastor Kris Theobald

Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straight, and the rough places shall become level ways, – Luke 3:5
Today was one of those mornings where the fog was so thick you could barely see ten feet in front of you. Nothing around me had really changed, I simply couldn’t see things clearly because of the fog. All I could do was slow down and proceed carefully. As I began to drive up the hill to church, I got above the fog and things were bright and clear, I was able to finish the journey knowing I was out of the fog.
We have those seasons spiritually too. Sometimes it’s like we are surrounded by a fog. Things haven’t changed, God is still with us, his promises are still true, his word never fails, it’s just that the fog is making it hard to see. It causes us to slow down, to pray, to wait, to trust. Then the fog lifts and we see that we are going to make it just fine, we always were, it was just a little blurry for us. Trust him today if you’re in a fog, he’s still God, he’s still in control.
