Thank you for visiting our website. Please enjoy your time here, click around to learn more about our ministries and what we believe, read through the Frequently Asked Questions below, listen to a message or two from Pastor T, and let us know if you have any further questions.


We invite you to experience Friendship in person. We know that looking for a new church can be intimidating, so whether you’ve grown up in church, never been to church, or are coming back to church, our desire is that you feel welcomed and accepted. We look forward to meeting you and your family.


What kind of church is Friendship Baptist Church?

We are a Baptist congregation with a rich history and a bright future.  We are a welcoming, engaging family of faith, seeking "to be a home to all who would enter."  We value our Baptist heritage and are committed to Baptist principles.  But although our church is historic and traditional, we are a healthy, growing congregation committed to the Jesus Christ where we have the Freedom to Serve Christ!


What time are your services?

Friendship offers one service on Sunday at 10:30am.


Our service offer great worship music, a relevant message, a welcoming, loving atmosphere, and friendly people who are eager to meet you and connect with you.


Our 10:30 am services last approximately 1.5 hours and is a more traditional worship service.


We recommend arriving about 15 minutes before the service to allow time for parking and seating. On Wednesdays, we have Mid-Week Bible Studies (Wonderful Wednesday) at 12:00 pm and 6:30 pm taught by Pastor T.


What is your worship like?

Worship at Friendship is a dynamic experience that ushers in the Holy Spirit, exalts the Name of Jesus and draws hearts and lives to Him.  Our worship is spirit-filled with an anointed Word from God focused with freedom, exuberance and passionate, engaging music that honors the Lord and draws people to know Him and love Him. You will find us lifting our hands, clapping, shouting or quietly “soaking” in God’s presence. It’s all about glorifying God in whatever way that honors Him. 


We are excited to use our anointed time of praise and worship as an avenue to worship God. We want everyone who comes through the door to experience the life changing power of worship through the Word of God and music.


What can I expect when I visit?

A friendly atmosphere with lots of smiling faces. We make a special effort to make every person who visits feels comfortable and welcome.  In order to know who our guests are, we will ask you to stand and you will receive a gift. Above all, we want our guests to relax and find us to be a loving, caring people who at some time in the past, was also a first-timer! You will not be pressured. Come and see us.
