WE BELIEVE

The Bible
We believe that the Bible is what it claims to be: the Word of God. We take instruction from the Bible in all areas of life, faith and practice. All of our teaching is taken from the  King James Version of the Bible.
 
Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as payment for our sins, and rose from the dead bodily on the third day. We believe that the only way a person can go to Heaven when he dies is to first place his faith in the payment that Jesus Christ provided with His shed blood on the cross.
 
Baptism
Once a person is saved by putting his faith in Jesus, we are commanded to be baptized by immersion to show to others what took place when we trusted Christ; we do this in obedience, not to save us but to show that we have been saved.
 
Lord’s Supper
We believe in participating in the Lord’s Supper on a regular basis to remember the payment Jesus made for us and to express our love to Him for that payment. The Lord’s Supper is not kept to take us to Heaven but to thank Jesus for His sacrifice.
 
The Family
We believe that the family unit should be strong and healthy. The first institution God made on earth was the family. We believe marriage is between a man and a woman. Friendship Baptist Church provides fellowship, friendship, and support services through our social activities. We strive to be protective of our children. Background checks of everyone working with a child are required.
 
Our Job
We believe that it is our responsibility, as outlined in the Bible, to spread the Gospel to our area, nation, and world. Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
