Hello and Welcome to Our Website!
Friendship Missionary Baptist Church is a gathering of Christians located in Fort Myers, Florida
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord" (Colossians 3:16).
Dr. David Roper of Radio Bible Class asked this question in a distant edition of Our Daily Bread : "How important is our fellowship in the local church? He attempted to answer that question by telling a story: A minister was concerned about the absence of a man who had normally attended services. After a few weeks, he decided to visit him. When the pastor arrived at the man's home, he found him all alone, sitting in front of a fireplace. The minister pulled up a chair and sat next to him. But after his initial greeting he said nothing more. The two sat in silence for a few minutes while the minister stared at the flames in the fireplace. Then he took the tongs and carefully picked up one burning ember from the flames and place it on the hearth. He sat back in his chair, still silent. His host watched in quiet reflection as the embers flickered and faded. Before long it was cold and dead.
The minister glanced at his watch and said he had to leave, but first he picked up the cold ember and place it back in the fire. Immediately it began to glow again with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it. As the pastor rose to leave, his host stood with him and shook his hand. Then, with a smile on his face, the man said, "Thanks for the sermon, pastor. I'll see you in church on Sunday."

Our church exists to minister to the real needs of people with the authentic love of Jesus Christ!
