Free Will Baptist organizations:
Proverbs 22:6 describes the process of parenting as "training up" a child. This Hebrew word Hanak literally means to dedicate. It implies channeling or narrowing a child's conduct into the way of wisdom, starting him or her down the path of righteousness toward a lifetime of serving God. This is not an easy process, and sometimes parents may wonder if they are making any progress at all. The August-September issue of ONE Magazine will remind them to keep pouring themselves into their children—loving them, correcting them, guiding them, and correcting them again. It's called relentless parenting, and it is biblical!

And why would one group of Baptists add "Free Will" to the front of their name? How are they different from more than 20 other Baptist groups?

For more than 250 years, Free Will Baptist churches have contributed to the moral and spiritual fibre of our nation. Would you like to know more?
