Welcome to Freedom Baptist Church website. Thank you for visiting with us today. We are a local Independent Baptist Church located in Athens, Tennessee. At Freedom, we worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. You will experience spirit-filled singing followed by biblical preaching and teaching from the word of God. It is our desire that Christ is exalted in every service.

Freedom Baptist Church is a church that majors on “Bible Preaching”. We believe the King James Bible is the preserved word of God for English-speaking people and is the only version accepted and used in the ministry of this church. The messages preached at Freedom still mention sin, death, hell, judgement, salvation, and the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Freedom is a church that is passionate about the gospel. The gospel of Jesus Christ takes center stage in everything we do. It is our desire and goal to reach as many people possible with the gospel as commissioned by our Lord.

At Freedom we believe in people. We believe that you are not just a number but a precious soul who Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, voluntarily laid down his life and shed his blood for. We strive to help people experience a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, grow deeper in that relationship, and equip them to point others to Christ.

Freedom Baptist Church is a wonderful place for you and your family to call home. It is a safe haven from this crazy world we are living in. At Freedom, we are a spiritual family who is growing and striving together in the service of our Lord.

We look forward to ministering to you and your family and worshiping the Lord together. If you are traveling through the area, stop by and see us. It would be our privilege and honor to host you in your next visit.


May God Richly Bless You…
