Original Free Will Baptist Church

Pastor Tevin & Lady Portia Boykin


A Welcome from our Pastor 

On behalf of myself, Lady Portia and the Union View Original FWB Church, I would like to welcome you to our webpage. Please take a moment to learn more about us and our ministry. It is our mission to do effective ministry by reaching as we hope to make a difference in the community spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. 


The History of Union View OFWB Church

Faith, Hope, and Love strengthened by prayer led our ancestors to establish Union
View Church. God led them to walk in the shadows of the cross, and in answer to their prayers, He revealed to them that there is strength through unity. Without the Faith, Hope, and Love, needless to say perseverance there would not have been a Union View Church.


Prior to the 1920’s, the people in and around the Green Pond Community worshipped in an old building located across from the old Griffin home house. It was named “The Hall’. After the building was torn down, the people began to worship in an old school across from the present site of Union View where the old Gaston Williams store is located.


The church was once named “Green Pond Church”, “The Free Will Baptist Church”, and later named “Union View Church”. In 1920, Reverend James Aaron Johnson, Deacon Sam Austin, Sr., and Deacon
Madison Joyner laid the foundation for Union View. The original church was destroyed by fire on September 26, 1956, and was rebuilt in 1961. The complete church was rebuilt in 1986.


The Pastors that have served at Union View are as followed:
Reverend J.T. Johnson. Reverend Lender, Reverend Rouse, Reverend Willoughby,
Reverend G.W. Little, Reverend D.E. Edwards, Reverend K.L. Smith, Reverend J.D.
Dudley, Reverend G.A. Richardson, Bishop J.N. Perry Jr.
