Jump to: navigation, search

The churches of the Convention of Original Free Will Baptists found their origin in the 1842 revision of the General Conference. This revision has since evolved into eight different conferences covering all or portions of 38 North Carolina Counties and several counties in South Carolina and southwest Georgia.

Albermarle Conference[edit]

The Albemarle Conference was organized in 1945 when as many as 17 churches from Central Conference decided to form a separate organization. Today the Albemarle Conference includes 14 churches and covers all or portions of Washington, Tyrell, Pasquotank, Hertford and Beaufort counties in northeastern North Carolina.

Today 30 Original Free Will Baptist Churches call this conference home. These churches are located in the counties of Hoke, Moore, Cumberland, Sampson, Wayne, Johnston, Wake and Harnett and Lenoir.
