About FOI

handsOur role in the Albany community is to help people find freedom from life’s controlling situations through the power of God’s grace. We believe in the edifying and building up of one another in practical, tangible ways. We recognize that everyone has a story, and none of them are without a “next chapter”. The decisions we have made and the roads we have walked are the stepping stones that God uses to reach the lives and hearts of others who can relate to where we have been. We strive to not only enhance the lives of individuals, but to train up leaders for our community, teaching people how to give back to others, and thus change the world!

Our Mission Statement

“Free on the Inside’s mission is to provide a faith based, loving community, no matter where you come from or what you’ve been through. We offer an open door and welcome you into a family that is learning to work, grow and fellowship together. As we gain the skills needed to be healthy, productive people, we then become better fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and friends. As our families become healthier, so does our community. The door is open to all! Come as you are and experience an environment of grace where lives are transformed and communities are improved.”
