Our Story

Foundation Free Will Baptist Church began more than 10 years ago as a mission church launched under the leadership of Rev. Sam and Jennifer Smith, with the assistance of the missions department of the Oklahoma Free Will Baptist Church. 

In the beginning the congregation was supported by churches across the country. Now, as we go into our 12th year, Foundation and its ministries are fully supported by our church family.

Because of the church’s location within the Grand Lake region many of our members live throughout Ottawa, Craig, Delaware and Mayes counties within northeast Oklahoma.

The location - two miles north of Sailboat Bridge - means the church’s ministries often cross into the nearby states of Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas.

The goal of Foundation Church is to fulfill the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20: 

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Our church family strives to create a place where people may find salvation, restoration and a community in which they can use as a foundation for their life. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
