Who We Are
Founded in 1949, Welcome Home Free Will Baptist Church is a bible-centered congregation of believers in Jesus Christ. We are a devoted, friendly congregation that share a family atmosphere. Further information on our beliefs can be found on the Welcome Home Free Will Baptist Church Beliefs page.
The "Welcome" part of our church name is intended to convey a message to this needy world such as the one that Moses extended to his brother-in-law. As Moses was preparing to leave for the promised land he said "We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good." (Numbers 10:29). As Christians we love you and are journeying to Heaven and want you to be there with us and the Lord.
Welcome Home Free Will Baptist Church was born out of burden and opportunity. In the summer of 1949, near the present church site, tent-revival services were being conducted on the farm of James and Laura Howell. Rev. William Calvin Childers, Joseph C. Childers, and others determined that the blessings received during these services was a sign that they were called to build a permanent place to worship. The present church sits on land that was part of that farm.
Our services are located at 1303 Prospect Mill Rd.
Bel Air, MD 21015
