Who we are. Where we're headed.
Friendship was born out of Lugoff First Baptist Church in 1985 as a traditional Southern Baptist church. Around the turn of the century, God began taking Friendship on a journey of transformation. This wasn't just a matter of style change, but heart change: the Lord turned our focus more outward toward the community and world around us. As He continues to grow us as a church, we're becoming a people committed to Christ and his gospel, to one another, and to showing & telling the love of God to our community and world. We are normal, everyday, broken people who have found joy, purpose, and freedom in a relationship with Jesus Christ. This is good news! And because of this, we want to know Him and make Him known.
As we move forward as a church family, we would love to invite you to join us for the ride. Regardless of your church background, your personal history, or your current situation, you are welcome here! Come join us and find Friendship.
