Our Church

Friendship Baptist Church was first founded in 1946, in a little small house at the corner of 15th and Wisconsin, prayer, praise, and Bible Study was being conducted. By God's grace, we have seen a lot of amazing things over the years. However, through all the change, one thing has remained consistent: a desire to show people who Jesus is and how to become devoted disciples of him. From day one, we have been a church community that is committed to growing in our faith and in our relationships with one another. We have taken Jesus' command to "be known by our love for one another" to heart. We know this is why so many of our people feel at home when they gather together. We are family, and we think that's how a church should be. One of the distinct things about our church community is that we are a multi-generational church. From young to old, there's a place for everyone here. Today we meet at 1421 S.W. New York Ave., and we continue to carry out our simple mission: Showing people who Jesus is and helping them become devoted disciples of Him.
