About Us 

Our Mission

The mission of the Original Free Will Christian Education Ministry (CEM) is to assist churches in developing the knowledge, skills and attitude that will enable people to go, teach and make disciples in each of our communities.

Our Story

 Records indicate that Christian Education has always been an important interest of the Original Free Will Baptist denomination.  In 1921, just eight years after the North Carolina State Convention of Free Will Baptist was formed, discussion was conducted concerning the need for an organized effort to place emphasis on Christian Education in the Free Will Baptist churches.  A "bureau of institutes" was established to begin this promotion through training Sunday School workers...

Our Vision

The vision of the OFWB Christian Education Ministry is to maintain its commitment to teaching and learning for everyone while remaining true to the belief that the message of salvation comes through Jesus Christ the Son of God.
