A larger facility in Evans gives Freedom Bible Church room for more growth.
The church, established in 2006, made the move from an office building on Cox Road to the corner of North Belair and Evans-to-Locks roads in early October.
Five years ago, Pastor Alvin Jones, his family, and 10 others started meeting for services within a room in the office building.
By 2010, the non-denominational, contemporary church had grown and taken over space in the entire building, which was renovated into a worship center.
“Our desire is to continue to grow,” Jones said.
Though the main goal, Jones said, is to positively affect people through the message of Jesus Christ.
“Growth will take care of itself,” he said.
Church members, now numbering more than 100, went from meeting in a 3,600-square-foot space to a 14,000-square-foot structure.
The new church sanctuary can seat about 400 people.
Jones said that once people come to know God, they’ll be enabled to live a life of freedom.
“The biggest struggle that I believe people in church and the world have today is what I call an identity-crisis,” he said. “We need to know who we are in Christ.”
The church has already held a dedication service for its new facility, and recently hosted a trunk or treat event on October 30.
