What is Church Membership?
Friendship Baptist Church is a New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are an independent local congregation of baptized believers who are joined by shared agreement. We share in the same faith and fellowship of the gospel. We are a group of baptized believers guided by The Holy Word of God found in the Bible. We use the gifts, rights, and privileges given to us by His Word under the Lordship of Christ. Within our congregation, each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord.
What Does Membership Look Like?
We believe that both men and women are given gifts by the Holy Spirit for service in the church. The ofﬁce of pastor is limited to men that meet the qualiﬁcations found in Scripture. The New Testament describes the church as the Body of Christ.
Friendship Baptist Church has an Essentials class led by Associate Pastor Bill Eller that is offered multiple times during the year during the Sunday School hour. Pastor Bill prepares you to be a valuable part of the congregation. Contact us to sign up for the next Essentials class or to discuss further with Pastor Bill.
