About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide experiences that amplify the voice of God in a unique, Christian environment. 


War to Peace

Tucked away on the eastern tip of Oak Island, Fort Caswell occupies the site of a former US military fortress. Since 1949, when the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina purchsed the property from the Federal Government, Caswell has been an instrument of peace, offering guests a place of quiet reflection and relaxation. Today we welcome Baptist churches, Christian groups of many other denominations, and nonprofit organizations to visit and experience the peace and beauty of this special place.

What We Believe

Fort Caswell Coastal Retreat and Conference Center is a ministry of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. Our Christian beliefs are foundational to our mission and inform everything we do. We encourage you to use the link below to visit the website of the Baptist State Convention of NC, where our beliefs are outlined in detail.
