We want to see the "Good News" of Jesus Christ change lives in our community.

Freedom Baptist Church in Bloomington, Illinois is a family. Saving grace through Jesus Christ bonds us, and by His grace we grow closer to God and one another. The Bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. God has designed the local church to be a place to grow stronger together.  

We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. It is there that the lost will be found. 

We value the Word of God, and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. We look to share God's saving grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to find hope in Jesus Christ.

Our Mission and Vision

GLORIFY God the Father and exalt His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, through the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit.            

GROW in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.       

GIVE of ourselves to actively engage in the work of the Lord.   

GO forth to reach our community and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I would love to be your Pastor!
