ONE Magazine represents
Free Will Baptist organizations:
The Great Commission. The gospel. Evangelism. Sharing the message of salvation with a world that needs to hear. This vital responsibility lies at the core of the Faith. Yet few Christians would tell you they are good at sharing the gospel. Instead, as writer Jacob Riggs notes (page 10), "We have sufficient information about Christ. We have a serious relationship with Christ. But we don't make significant impact for Christ in the area of evangelism." The April-May issue of ONE Magazine takes a closer look at what it means to be a "partner in the gospel," and how Free Will Baptists can share that gospel more effectively.
Take a Walk Through Free Will Baptist History
What do you really know about Free Will Baptists? Perhaps you have heard the word Baptist all your life without stopping to consider where the name came from. Maybe you didn't realize there are dozens of Baptist groups: Missionary Baptists, Primitive Baptists, American Baptists, Independent Baptists, General Baptists, Regular Baptists, and more.
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? The Free Will Baptists in the South began in 1727, making this one of the oldest Baptist groups in the United States. 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?
