Mission Statement

We are the people of God, called together to be the Body of Christ, inspired by the Holy Spirit: To proclaim God’s Will, to love one another, to be instruments of salvation – preaching, teaching, worshipping, caring, sharing, growing and giving service through community outreach.

History of Friendship

Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, Charlotte, NC was organized in 1890. Forty members of First Baptist Church, located at 1021 S. Church St., withdrew their membership by letter and, under the leadership of Rev. Allen Lewis, organized a new church. Sis. Rosa Watson offered the name FRIENDSHIP, taken from the historic Friendship Baptist Church of Atlanta.
