What We Believe
Friendship Baptist Church affiliates with the Southern Baptist Convention, the South Carolina Baptist Convention, and the Laurens Baptist Association. The Southern Baptist Convention is made up of 43,700 churches nationwide.  It is America’s largest protestant denomination.

We are a part of the Southern Baptist Convention because of:

The Organization  - In the Southern Baptist Convention churches operate independently as autonomous congregations.  They have their own identity. They govern themselves under the headship of Jesus Christ, without interference or any denominational control.

The Cooperation – We can cooperate together with a large number of churches to accomplish things on a world-wide scale that would be impossible for us as a single church.

What does Friendship Baptist believe?

The Bible and Being Born Again.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us, and shows us how to find eternal salvation through receiving Jesus Christ into our lives.

Autonomy of local churches.
We believe that the local church is free to govern itself under the leadership of Jesus Christ.

Priesthood of every believer in Jesus Christ.
We believe that every person who has trusted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior receives eternal life. We also believe that every believer in Jesus Christ has a direct personal relationship with Him, without anyone needing to serve as a mediator.

Spiritual Development of Christians.
We believe that God’s people are to grow in their relationship with Him and learn the Scriptures in order to discover the plan of God for their life and service for Him.

We believe that believers in Jesus Christ should follow His Biblical example of immersion in water baptism as a confession of their faith in Jesus.
We believe that every follower of Jesus Christ is responsible to tell the good news of Christ until the whole world hears it.
