Brother Wendell Thomas had a vision to build a non-denominational church in Milledgeville, GA while pastoring in a nearby community. His desire was to establish an independent church that would preach the Gospel without apology and challenge Christians to live a life of holiness, under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. The church family was first established in 1985 on South Wayne Street in a former “dance hall”. Brother Wendell loves to tell about those first services on the dance floor.
The current location at 500 Underwood Road was purchased and developed later that year. Our first sanctuary was completed in 1986 with additional classroom and fellowship space added later. Over the years, God has blessed the Freedom Church family to grow until there was a need to expand our ministry space. The current sanctuary was completed debt free in 1997, with the addition of the Family Life Center with additional office and classroom space in 2003.
Freedom Church has become well-known for its annual Easter Passion Play. In April, 2011, we celebrated our 25th year presenting, through drama and music, the miraculous life, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If you have never had the opportunity to experience this ministry, we encourage you to mark your calendar for next year. Our 2012 dates are: March 30 and 31; April 6 and 7. Performances begin @ 7 PM. Doors open @ 5 PM. Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we recommend early arrival for each performance.
