We believe that there is one God, Creator and Maker, sovereign in His rule. We believe that Jesus Christ is His only begotten son, that He was born of a virgin and that He died and rose again, and that He is our High Priest. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells in every believer and that He exhorts, He teaches, He seals and that He will be in mankind until Jesus returns. We believe that the word of God is without error and that it was given by inspiration of God. We believe in water Baptism (total submerging). We believe in partaking of Communion, that represents Jesus Christ body and His blood. We believe that mankind was created in the image and likeness of God, but because of sin, man became totally depraved having no life within himself, therefore salvation is the gift of God through a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and sanctification is the setting apart unto God. We believe that the Church, universal, is a spiritual organism made up of born again believers in Christ Jesus.
We believe that the term 'marriage' has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
As a body of believers our greatest effort is to evangelize. We believe that Biblical information supersedes anything else. Our mission is to feed the hungry; cloth the naked; and to tell others the good news. We recognize that our Gospel concerns His death, His burial, His bodily resurrection and His priestly reign. We do these services according to the great commission found in Matthew 28:19-20, that others outside of the hallowed church walls might have the opportunity to be saved, and that they be in fellowship with others like ourselves.
OUR VISION for the future of Friendship Baptist Church of The Colony is to see us operating in unity for the glory of our God. The Lord has blessed us with a facility to educate, to increase our ministries and to have joy and rejoicing. Our vision is not to settle and become complacent, but to be always on the move to see what God is doing with us in moving to the next level. In our vision we believe that God is sending people who share the same desires and willingness to see progress at its highest level. We envision new works, challenges of life, healing and deliverance. After seeing what the Lord has done we now know with certainty that there is nothing too hard for our God. Today is the best day in our lives, where we can attain all the blessings of God through history, through illustration and by illumination. May each of you grab the vision and do your part in keeping it a reality.
One may join the church by being of like faith, or one may accept Jesus Christ in the pardon of their sins. Romans 10:9, gives us direction to hearing, believing, repenting and confessions of our sins.
When the invitation has been given one may come forth with a letter from their previous church, a statement of belief, or as a candidate for Baptism and place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
The Body of Friendship Baptist Church of The Colony accepts those that God adds daily (Acts 2:47). Those that come will be placed in a Deacon Family at that time.
