Free Will Baptist
Welcome to the web presence for Haven Free Will Baptist Church.  Haven is a friendly group where you can learn, connect, grow, and serve. Whether you are hurt, confused, looking for somewhere to belong, or just plain curious, there is a place for you here. Our goal is to make every worship gathering welcoming to the guest and challenging to the heart and mind. Though located on the Southwest side of Raleigh, we are pleased to be made up of people from Cary, Holly Springs, Garner, and many other areas of the triangle region.  Our physical address for your GPS is 5408 Tryon Road, Raleigh, NC 27606
It is our prayer that you will not just visit our website but that you will visit us in person. We would love to welcome you into our church family and to a new life in Christ. We invite you join us for worship soon at Haven.

In Person and Online Services Available Now

The Haven Church leadership team has taken every precaution to allow us to open for in-building services safely, including provisions for distancing, masks, hand sanitizers, and self-cleaning nanoSeptic protection for door surfaces.   Masks are optional based on your personal preference.    
We certainly would prefer you join us for our in-person services, but we also offer online services via Facebook Live stream for those not ready to return in-person.  We also offer opportunities for Bible studies online using the Zoom platform.  We are reminded that the Church is not a place, but it is the body of Christ – the people of God!   Let us continue to trust our Savior, Jesus Christ all the more during this time!

About Haven Church

Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Haven FWB Church is to follow the Great Commandments – to love God and love our neighbors, and follow the Great Commission – to make disciples throughout all the nations. We achieve this by edifying and training the believers, and by means of outreach. In all that we do we want to bring honor and glory to the name of Jesus Christ.

What We Believe …

What About My Kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week – and at Haven Church, we make this a priority. During the 10:30 am service on Sundays we have Children’s Church for 3-5 year olds, where music, crafts, and Bible stories keep everyone involved. Our Junior Church is led by Youth Pastor Kevin Banberger for 6-12 year olds, and they can expect an exciting and interactive experience. Try to arrive a few minutes early and we’ll make sure everyone gets to the right place.
