About Free Will Baptists
Free Will Baptist roots can be traced to England as early as 1611. In 1780, under the leadership of Benjamin Randall, Free Will Baptists were established in the northeast at New Durham, New Hampshire. Free Will Baptist churches voluntarily organized themselves into district, state, and national associations for the purpose of promoting the cause of Christ on the local, state, district, national, and world-wide level.
