Hello and Welcome to Our Website!
Friendship Missionary Baptist Church is a gathering of Christians located in Fort Myers, Florida
"Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through Him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God's set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put Him to death by nailing Him to the cross. But God raised Him from the dead, freeing Him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on Him" (Acts 2:22-24 NIV).
In a devotional message on the resurrection of Christ, a certain author made the statement that it really doesn't make any difference whether Jesus arose from the dead or not, that the important fact is that the things for which Jesus stood continue to live on in the lives of His disciples. Such a statement is in direct opposition to the teachings of the apostle Paul (see 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 12-20). He said it does make a difference, for if Jesus is not risen from the dead, "our preaching is vain or useless, as is our faith; and we are found to be false witnesses about God; we are still in our sins; and those who have fallen asleep (died) in Christ have perished; and we are to be pitied more than all men."
The resurrection of Christ is one of the most attested facts in history. It gives definite assurance to our hope for a better life in the future and provides meaning to life on earth. It challenges us as believers to give up ambition for wealth or prominence in this world, and to endure hardship, privation, and persecution for the sake of Christ and His promise of life eternal to those who love and serve Him. If we had no hope beyond this life, we are to be pitied, but because He lives, we have hope of eternal life.

We want to meet you where you are and hopefully help you grow in a meaningful relationship with God, through Jesus. We are people who struggle and hurt as we face the daily pressures of life. We are also people who are experiencing the life and joy of Jesus Christ in our daily lives. We would like nothing more than to have you join us as we seek, learn, and grow together in our spiritual walk with God.
