More About Us

Our vision is to celebrate lives transformed by Jesus Christ. Read our mission and bylaws.

Our Statement of Faith is that of the Evangelical Free Church of America

First Free was planted in 1880 and came to the Andersonville Neighborhood in the early 1900s.

Our campus includes our worship center, family life center, and church office buildings.

We would love to hear from you.
