2 Who We Are Friendship Baptist Church is a church of baptized believers in Jesus Christ located in the West End Community. We are governed by God first then our church covenant, constitution and bylaws. The church is a 501c3 certified nonprofit charity. There are approximately 430 members on roll. The community s makeup is predominately African Americans. Many of the older residents have lived in the community for many years, although the young adults who live in and around the area move frequently. The makeup of the church membership comes from all over the city of Tuscaloosa with a high concentration from the Westside. Friendship Baptist Church has a vibrant (alive) worship service. There are currently 13 deacons in the Deacon s Ministry. The deacons handle the spiritual side in helping the pastor and manage the benevolence. There are currently 7 trustees in the Trustee s Ministry who handles the finances and properties of the church. The music is alive and diversified. We have six choirs with a diverse range of music that relates to different age groups. The Mission Ministry, Sunday school, Youth Ministry, Usher Ministry and other ministries make up the church. The strength of the church rests on our beliefs, dedicated members on Sunday mornings and their efforts to support the church spiritually and financially. Some of our weaknesses are (1) lack of membership participation outside of Sunday worship (2) Christian education (3) and the lack of a solid ministry structure. Challenges ahead will be keeping the membership together and adding to the growth of the church and building a better community relationship.
