Friendship Baptist Church is dedicated to the proclamation of the gospel to all people, for we know it is God “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 2:4).
It is for this reason that in addition to proclaiming the gospel here at FBC and circulating the gospel through tract distribution, we also support mission works in other parts of the world.
