The MISSION of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church
"TO LOVE GOD BY VALUING AND AFFIRMING THE IMAGE OF GOD IN ALL HUMANITY."
The VISION of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church
"TO BE THE LOVING AND FRIENDLY CHURCH
GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE."
We seek to be intentional about creating courageous and safe spaces for people to discover and live into their full potential and affirm them as image bearers of God. Our love for God is embodied by how we love all of God’s children (Matthew 22:37-40). We believe that we are required by God to do the work of justice while being kind, compassionate and walking with humility before God and humanity.
To be a disciple of Christ is to be a lifelong follower and learner. We believe God invites us to bring our entire selves; our hearts, soul and our minds. We want you to experience God’s presence, learn more about who God created you to be and think through matters of faith as a family.
We are the body of Christ which says to us that none of us are called to do life by ourselves. We want to know you and do life with you. We desire to rejoice with you and help you bear the burdens of life. We even look forward in you aiding us in seeking ways to do this more effectively.
We seek to live in harmony as we develop beloved community. This means we recognize all that we have in common but celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. We believe the best unity happens in a culture that embraces diversity.
We value collaboration not competition. To live out our church’s vision and mission in the world we understand that to be involved does not mean we must be in control. Not only will be partner with the diverse members of our church but with other churches that seek love and justice in the world.
