Our History

Faith Free Will Baptist Church of Goldsboro, North Carolina
was organized on October 20, 1961, at 515 South Slocumb Street. In 1965, the church purchased land on Highway 70 and built a new 450 seat auditorium with 26 classrooms and offices.


Since then, the church has grown in attendance, buildings, and outreach. Faith Church now averages 850 each Sunday morning with “high” days of over 1,000. With newly renovated and constructed buildings, God has allowed us to minister to our congregation and facilitate more ministry opportunities.


Three men have served as pastor since we began in 1961: Rev. Frank Davenport (1961‐1981) and Rev. Dann Patrick (1981‐2014). Pastor Christian Powell is now the current pastor.
