About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Here's the deal, Freedom Baptist cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Freedom Baptist is a family of individuals that have found freedom in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

Freedom Baptist was started in 2009 by a trio of families. Back then, this trio of families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Freedom hosted its first gathering in late 2009.

Pastor Matheny became the Pastor in 2011 and has seen God bless at Freedom by allowing the church to grow spiritually and move into 3 different properties because of the people that are continually blessed through this ministry.

Where we're headed

Freedom exists to connect people like you to God, to provide the opportunity for you to grow closer to God through Life Groups, and seek to ways for you to serve the Lord in the church and the community as we seek to the share the message of the gospel with Yuma.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Freedom Baptist. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Freedom family.
