Discipleship & spiritual growth Church Life at Friendship Baptist

Our desire is that we as a church grow in spiritual maturity into the likeness of Christ and be bound together in love and unity. Unity among believers is possible only when it is built upon the foundation of the gospel. We seek to help all people pursue a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ through solid Bible preaching and teaching. We also serve ministries and missions in Raleigh and around the world through intentional outreach. To find out more about life at Friendship, select a ministry area below.


From our Sunday morning Bible classes to one-on-one discipleship, we’re serious about studying God’s Word together and encouraging each other with the truths we’re learning. We also recognize the joy and support found in Christian fellowship and provide many ways for adult members to serve together and to connect.

Young Adults

Young adults need intentional, caring relationships centered on God’s Word. We’re focused on reaching young men and women of college age, recent grads, and young married couples as they navigate early adulthood. We desire to help apply biblical training to work, independence, and family life by providing opportunities for growth in knowledge, understanding and practical life application of the truths of the Word given to us by God. We invite you to participate in these discipleship opportunities.

Proclaiming His Excellencies

In 1 Peter 2:9, Peter tells us that God has redeemed Christians so “that [we] should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” We serve a magnificently gracious God who has forgiven our sins and has satisfied our souls. And because we love Him, we desire to “proclaim His excellencies” to all who will listen.

Come join us!
