 Albany- Albany's First Baptist Church will be moving to Lee County.

During a church conference Wednesday night, the majority of the congregation, 75 percent, voted to buy this land at Oakland Plantation just outside Dougherty County.

The church will deliver a letter of intent to purchase land there and begin the surveying process, which church officials say could take up to six months.

Building Committee Chairman Don Barfield said it could take two to three years to fully relocate from downtown. First Baptist leaders hope to start a new church in their current sanctuary on Pine Avenue after their move to Lee County.
