Our Values:
• We Are a Christian People:
We Are a Holiness People:
God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a
second work of grace, called by various terms including "entire sanctification" and "baptism with the
Holy Spirit"-It cleans us from all sin, renews us in the image of God, empowers us to love God with
our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and produces in us the
character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.
We Are a Missional People
We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all
the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church
and the extension of His kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:1). Our mission (a) begins in
worship, (b) ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, and (c) encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship.
As members of the Church Universal, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of
Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic Trinitarian creedal statements of Christian faith. We value
our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to
Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.
Enrich, Encourage, & Empower
Our mission statement:
We are a Christ centered,bible based and evangelistic minded body; that seeks to enrich,
encourage and empower all people through holistic doctrine.
These are the beliefs Friendship hold to be true:
Our Beliefs:
• We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
• We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all
   truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
• We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
• We believe that the finally unrepentant are hopelessly and eternally lost.
• We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever
   repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion
   of sin.
• We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the
   Lord Jesus Christ.
• We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the sanctification of believers.
• We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
