"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD,
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end".  Jer 29:11


Dear Friends and Visitors,

Thank you for visiting our site!  The word "expected" in this context of scripture above defined, means; to long for. God longs for us to be in relationship with Him just as He longed or desired to be in relationship with all of Israel and all souls desiring Him. But as some chose not to; God has chosen to stay in relationship with His creation by giving all a chance to get to know Him as their Savior; through renewed Grace and Mercy daily. 

As Pastor of the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, I would like to take the time to thank you for visiting our site and I hope that you will not leave the same way you came. There are tools on our site to help minister to you, grow you, challenge you and encourage you to be in a closer relationship with Him. Nothing that God has for you has ever been based on your performance and never will be; but solely because He loves you and His motivation to be in relationship with you. So please feel free to navigate around our site and if there be a need to contact us, please feel free to do so via the contact information and mediums provided.

As you have taken time to visit and fellowship with us via our website; please allow Friendship to fellowship with you in person during our Sunday Morning Worship Services at 10:30 am or Wednesday Night Bible study at 7:00 pm.

Together:  We serve a real God, with a real Word, for a real people, for real times as these.

Keeping it "REAL" through Encouragement.

You Be Encouraged!
