(Founded ca 1890)

In the early 1890's the United American Free Will Baptist Church was born. This church began as a vision by a group of dedicated Christians who sought a place of worship. They purchased land in 1896 and built a church. Later it was renamed the Cumberland Union Free Will Baptist Church. The original structure was located across the road from the site of the present structure in Linden, N.C.

Cumberland Union Freewill Baptist Church has made many strides under the leadership of the Elder A. M. Matthews, the Reverend Lonnie Campbell, the Reverend David Elliott, and many others. Elder William Rudolph McKay became pastor in March 1998. Under his leadership several major church projects and renovations have been completed.

The members are active in organizations such as the Young People Christian League, Usher’s Board, Mother’s Board, the Senior and Junior Choir, the Young Adult Choir, the Male Choir, the Brotherhood, Florist Club, Deacon Board, Board of Trustees, and Home Mission.

Cumberland Union is a member of the "B" Conference and a member of the Lillington District Union. The church has grown spiritually and materially because of our strong leadership and loyal followers.
