New Members of "The Ship"

Your decision to join Friendship Baptist Church of the Colony, has placed you among many others who have discovered God's will for their life.

As we received you into our fellowship, we accept the responsibilities of encouraging you in your devotion and aiding you in finding a place of service. You will find that your church has a full and rapidly expanding program of ministry. These programs are designed both to minister to you and your family, and to provide you with a place of service.

With your decision to become a part of this church, you are accepting the responsibility of representing and regularly encouraging other Christians in their devotion and service to the church (Hebrews 10:25).

You are also accepting the responsibility of representing Christ in all that you do. You have publicly identified with his people. However you conduct yourself in the future will directly reflect upon Christ and His church (I Peter 2:9-12).

It is our prayer that you will discover a new meaning in your Christian experience as you settle in your new church home. A large measure of your fulfillment will be determined by your willingness to seek opportunities of service (Luke 9:23-24).

Never hesitate to call upon any member of your new church family, we are to "bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ".
