NAFWB Departments & Agencies
The Free Will Baptist denomination is baptistic in government, recognizing the autonomy of each local church. Local churches are organized into quarterly meetings, which in turn are grouped into district associations. These district associations come together in state associations and the various state associations comprise the National Association.
The National Association meets annually for the purpose of conducting business and formulating its program of work. Denominational ministries are represented through departments— Executive Office, Board of Retirement, Free Will Baptist Foundation, IM Inc., North American Ministries, Randall House Publications, Welch College, and WNAC. The work of each department is projected through its board which is elected by the National Association.
