Become a Christian

Becoming and practicing what it means to be a Christian seeks to share a process of change from a self-centered lifestyle to a Christ-centered lifestyle. .

Become a Member

If you are interested in joining the Friendship Baptist Church (FBC) family, you may join in person by responding to the invitation during worship service.

Welcome Guest

There is a marvelous uniqueness shared by the Christian family, specifically when gathered for worship and praise. It is in this context that one ceases being a visitor, member, out-of-town guest, professional or non-professional, and through a Divine act we become one. It is our fervent hope and prayer that you are challenged intellectually and stimulated spiritually during our worship experiences..
