About Our Church

Who We Are

Friendship Baptist is located in Maryville, TN. Founded in 1966, our church combines old and new tradition. We believe our key purpose is to further the Gospel, and strive to do that with everything we do through the church. A congregation of around 150 regularly attends, making this the perfect size to join right in. 

Matthew 11:28-30 
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

What We Believe

We believe that there is a true, and living God, who created us, and sustains us. We believe we walked in perfect harmony with God, but our sin causes a separation. Jesus, the Son of the Living God, came and shed his blood to restore us into a relationship with the Father. Once we are saved, we receive the third of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, which leads us on to his Glory.
