A CHURCH THAT STANDS ON TRUTH

Welcome new visitors to Revive Free Will Baptist Church. 
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Free Will Baptist roots can be traced to England as early as 1611. The first FWB church in America was begun by Paul Palmer in 1727 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. Some years later, in 1780, under the leadership of Benjamin Randall, Free Will Baptists were established in the northeast at New Durham, New Hampshire. From these early beginnings, Free Will Baptists in America have had a continuing ministry. Today, the National Association of Free Will Baptists is active in 40 states and 20 foreign countries. The work of the National Association is promoted from the National Office Building and Randall House Publications, both located in Nashville, Tennessee.

What do Free Will Baptists believe?

  • God – We believe that God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Righteous Ruler of the universe. He has revealed Himself in nature, and in the Scriptures of the Holy Bible as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: yet as one God.
  • Jesus Christ – He is God’s unique Son; the only one of a kind. The Scripture teaches that He is God revealed in flesh. In His Divine nature He is truly God and in His human nature truly man. He is the One once crucified for man’s sin, the now risen and glorified Savior and Lord who mediates between God and man and who gives us access to the Father through His intercession. None can come to the Father unless they come through Him.
  • Holy Spirit – All of the attributes of God are ascribed to the Holy Spirit by the Scriptures. It is He who convicts and convinces men of their sin. He also convinces man of that which is right, and that a final day of judgment will come. He, it is, who comes to live in us at conversion, to open our understanding to the Scripture, and to lead us into the truth.
  • The Bible – God used holy men to write the Scriptures. They are, in both the Old and New Testaments, the very words God intended us to have. They are, as given by God, without error and are our only rule of faith and practice. We profit from them by learning the truth about many things: they also speak to us about wrong doing; they even correct us and get us back on course as well as instructing us in right living.
  • Man – God created man in a state of innocence. Man, being tempted by Satan, yielded and willfully disobeyed God, becoming a sinner and incurring God’s judgment upon sin. All of Adam’s descendants inherit his fallen nature and thus have a natural inclination to sin. When one comes to an age of accountability, he is guilty of sinning before God and in need of salvation.
  • God’s Relationship to His Creatures and Creation – God exercises a wise and benevolent providence over all beings and things. He maintains the laws of nature and performs special acts as the highest welfare of mankind and His created order of things require.
  • Salvation – Man receives pardon and forgiveness for his sins when he admits to God that he is a sinner, when in godly sorrow he turns from them and trusts in the work of Christ as redemption for his sin. This acceptance of God’s great salvation involves belief in Christ’s death on the cross as man’s substitute and the fact of God’s raising Him from the dead as predicted. It is a salvation by grace alone and not of works.
  • Who Can be Saved? – It is God’s will that all be saved, but since man has the power of choice, God saves only those who repent of their sin and believe in the work of Christ on the cross. Those who refuse in this life to repent and believe have no later chance to be saved and thus condemn themselves to eternal damnation by their unbelief.
  • Perseverance – We believe that there are strong grounds to hope that the saved will persevere unto the end and be saved because of the power of divine grace pledged for their support. We believe that any saved person who has sinned (whether we call him a backslider or sinner), but has a desire to repent, may do so and be restored to God’s favor and fellowship. Since man, however, continues to have free choice, it is possible because of temptations and the weakness of human flesh for him to fall into the practice of sin and to make shipwreck of his faith and be lost.
  • Gospel Ordinances – Free Will Baptists believe the Bible teaches three ordinances for the church to practice: Baptism in water by immersion, the Lord’s Supper, to be perpetuated until His return, and the Washing of the Saints’ feet, an ordinance teaching humility.
  • Resurrection – Free Will Baptists believe the Scriptures teach the resurrection of the bodies of all men, each in its own order; they that have done good will come forth to the resurrection of life, and they that have done evil to the resurrection of damnation.
  • Church Government – Free Will Baptist churches enjoy local church autonomy (self-governing). The local church is the highest authority in the denomination. Local churches voluntarily organize themselves into quarterly meetings, district, state, and national associations for the purpose of promoting the cause of Christ on the local, state, district, national, and world-wide level.
  • Christ’s Second Coming – The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ, who ascended on high and sits at the right hand of God, will come again to close the Gospel dispensation, glorify His saints, and judge the world.
  • Missions – Free Will Baptists believe that Jesus commanded the church to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.

Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in Yahweh’s law.

DO YOU KNOW JESUS?
 
Maybe you have seen Him in the media or watched a movie about Him. Perhaps you even own a crucifix.
 
But do you really know Him?

You see, a relationship with Jesus Christ is the only way to live—the only way to experience eternal life. He is absolute truth; He is life, and without Him, there is no hope for tomorrow.

The Bible makes it plain that we cannot come before God in our own righteousness. We are sinful people who have disobeyed God’s commands, done things that fall short of his standard of holiness.

However, the Bible also tells us that we can find salvation in Jesus. He was born of a virgin, lived among men, was crucified for the sins of all mankind, rose from the grave on the third day, ascended to Heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father.

When we accept His sacrificial death for our sins and ask Him to forgive those sins, we become “children of God.” As a result of our relationship with Jesus, we are promised a home in Heaven when we die.

Do you know Jesus? If not, why not? It is the most important relationship you can have. Why not trust Christ and ask Him for forgiveness.
 
 
The following “steps to salvation” are taken directly from the Word of God:
  1. Admit your sin. “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10)
  2. Acknowledge the penalty for sin. “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23a)
  3. Believe that Jesus’ death and resurrection paid the penalty for your sin. “But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23b).
  4. Ask God to forgive your sin. “If thou shalt confess…thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9, 10)
  5. Acknowledge Christ as the Lord of your life. “But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12)
 
Perhaps you would like to pray the following simple prayer. You don’t need fancy words, just an honest and open heart.
 
Pray something like this:
 
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. But I also believe You died for my sin, and through faith in Your death and resurrection I can be forgiven. I confess my sin and ask You to become my Savior and Lord from this day forward. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
 
 
 
If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually.

If you have questions or concerns you would like help with, please call or write and let us know. We’re here to help you understand the love that Jesus is offering you for free, no matter who or where you are.
