Valley Forge Free Will Baptist (FWB) Church, Elizabethton, Tennessee (TN), USA

Valley Forge Free Will Baptist (FWB) Church, Elizabethton – Origin:
In 1930, several congregations shared the Old Log Church, which still stands in Valley Forge approximately 1/4 mile from the current location of Valley Forge Free Will Baptist (FWB) Church, Elizabethton.

It provided the community with a “House of Worship” for all faiths.

In 1930, following a Revival Meeting at the Old Log Church, Rev. D.C. Patrick along with 6 individuals gathered together in faith and prayer to form a congregation that would be able to meet weekly.

Since there was a Baptist Church located nearby, they were chartered as Morning Star Free Will Baptist Church. This small group of believers saw a vision of God’s will and an opportunity to minister to the community of Valley Forge.

In 1940, Rev. W.M. James moved the congregation from the Log Church to a newly constructed sanctuary located beside the railroad bridge.

The new Church was named Valley Forge Free Will Baptist Church.
