Updating FreeBSD

I have an older version of FreeBSD 11 installed:

FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #0 r296485: Tue Mar  8 07:04:36 UTC 2016

Am I correct in assuming that "freebsd-update" will not update the
system to the latest stable version? I am assuming that the easiest and
possible safest method would be to back up my data and config files and
then download and install the latest version. Is that correct?

Thanks :)
