About Us

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 loved 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 2015 dates are: March 27 and 28; April 2, 3 and 4.  Performances begin @ 7 PM.  Doors open @ 5 PM.

This year, we are requiring a FREE ticket to attend.  You can get your Easter Play 2015 tickets, here.

  1. Patrick-
    Have you heard about The Summit? It’s a unique event for adults in youth ministry that we are super proud to host.
    A Creativity Sparker. An Idea Stirrer. An Insight Inviter.

    That’s what The Summit is all about.
    We’re all for practical training, but training is not really the focus of this event (there are other events that do that really well).

    Instead, The Summit is intentionally designed to stir your youth ministry imagination and assist you in discerning God’s leading for your wonderfully unique expression of youth ministry.

    Here’s info about this year’s theme, our presenters, and a pile of videos from previous years so you can get a flavor for what it’s all about.

    If you register by June 30, 2015 you will receive great perks including audio from The Summit 2015 ($25 value) and a $10 credit to our online store (1 per ministry/group).

    Thanks for your time!
