We are a Southern Baptist Church...but that doesn't mean we all speak with Southern accents (although a few of our folks DO)! In essence, being a Southern Baptist Church simply means that we believe that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to be saved. We also believe the following:
2 Timothy 3:16
1 Corinthians 8:6, Matthew 28:19
Matthew 1: 23, 25, Matthew 27: 59, 60, Matthew 28: 5, 6
John 3: 16; Acts 20: 21, Ephesians 2: 8-9
John 10: 27-30; Romans 8: 38-39
Acts 8: 36, 39, Romans 6: 4
1 Corinthians 11: 23-26
There are many other beliefs that Southern Baptists hold. You can see those by reading the 2010 Baptist Faith and Message (link on right-hand side of page).
As a Southern Baptist Church, we accomplish our work of spreading the Gospel in partnership with two Southern Baptist entities: the Baptist Convention of New England (BCNE) which is a regional association; and through the Massachusetts Baptist Association (MBA), a state association of local SBC churches. Through our partnerships with both the BCNE and the MBA, we have opportunities to work with other churches of like mind to reach more people for Christ! We also work directly in our own community of Brimfield, looking to make an impact for Christ in our town, the surrounding towns and around the world through a variety of outreach and service opportunities.
That's a brief look at the beliefs of Friendship Baptist Church, where we are committed to the solitary, life-saving message that only Jesus saves! Come and join us on the great adventure God has called us to!
