We at Friendship Community Church desire to make people feel welcome and cared for, just as Jesus did. We want to accept each person as he is, without being judgmental or without trying to fit him into our mold. We hope you experience a warm welcome here.
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Bible is God’s infallible word, written by men who were divinely and uniquely inspired (II Peter 1:20-21) and that it is our supreme authority in all matters of history, faith and practice. We affirm our belief in the literal inspiration of all 66 books of the Bible (II Timothy 3:16).
We believe in God the Father, creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer (I John 5:14-15), and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man, who was born of a virgin, sinless in His life, and died for the sins of the whole world (I John 2:2). We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension to Heaven and His personal, visible return to the world.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with the Father and the Son; that He indwells every true child of God, teaching Him to do God’s will (John 14:16-17, 26).
We believe that all men are sinners, but “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as Savior shall be forever in God’s presence.
We believe that the local church should be composed of believing Christians who voluntarily unite together to learn about the Bible, to gain strength from one another and to pray for needs (Acts 2:41-42).
