"The" Friendship Baptist Church
We are "The Church with the Neighborly Spirit."
Organized in 1897
"Praying and Praising God for Victory"
II Chronicles 20:4-29
Greetings in the Name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ! I would like to twish everyone a very Happy New Year (2013). This year, at Friendship Baptist Church, I would like to place a special emphasis on Prayer and Praise. Prayer and Praise are integral in the life of every believer. When we learn to pray and praise God, our lives will become better, our relationships with others will become better, and our relationship with God will become better. This year I would also like to continue to encourage the entire membership to participate in the teaching arms of the church by attending Sunday Church School and/or Bible Study. For those who are unable to attend evening Bible Study, you can always attend noonday Bible Study. Peace and Blessings!

"The" Friendship Baptist Church of Chicago, constructed like an African hut, is located at the corners of Laramie Ave. and Jackson Blvd. in the Austin community on Chicago's west-side. The wood used to construct the pews is from Mozambique in Africa. The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Bell Tower on the left symbolizes our dreams of hope for tomorrow.
The Friendship Baptist Church is a congregation of baptized believers who strive to meet the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ in St. Matthew 28:19-20 by Exalting the Savior through meaningful worship and godly living, Equipping the Saints through the teaching of God’s word, Entreating the Lord through prayer and Evangelizing the lost through fellowship and ministry.

Candidate for Baptism
Having been as we trust, brought by Divine Grace to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ, and to give ourselves wholly to Him we do now solemnly and joyfully covenant with each other, to walk together in Him with brotherly love to His glory as our common Lord. We do therefore in His Strength engage...
That we will exercise a Christian Care and Watchfulness over each other, and faithfully warn, exhort and admonish each other as occasion may require.
That we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but will uphold the public worship of God, and the ordinances of His house.
That we will not omit closet and family religion at home, nor neglect the great duty of religiously training our children, and those under our care, for the service of Christ, and the enjoyment of heaven.
That as we are the light of the world and the salt of the earth, we will seek Divine aid to enable us to deny ungodliness, and every worldly lust, and to walk circumspectly in the world that we may win the souls of men.
That we will cheerfully contribute of our property according as God has prospered us, for the maintenance of a faithful and evangelical ministry among us, for the support of the poor, and to spread the Gospel over the earth.
That we will in all conditions, even till death, strive to live to the glory of Him who hath called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
"And may the God of Peace, that brought again from the dead, our Lord Jesus, that Great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work, to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ: To whom be the Glory, forever and ever. Amen."
