Kendale Acres Free Will Baptist Church was organized on October 16, 1970 under the name of First Free Will Baptist Church. In 1973 the church completed its fist building project and the congregation moved to its new location at 3407 Cemetery Road. The church voted to change names to Kendale Acres Free Will Baptist in 1975. As the church grew, so did the need for more space. In 2001 construction began on a new sanctuary, and in 2002 the new building was dedicated to the service of the Lord. Nine men have served as pastor since being organized in 1970: Grant Saverance, Mike Tart, Joe Dan Underwood, Richard Barnes, AC Morgan, Robert Hesselmeyer, Jerry Gray, Billy Keith, and Doug Western. God has blessed us through the years and is continuing to bless as we seek to serve Him here in Sanford, North Carolina.
