The Friendship Baptist Church Outreach Ministry is an advocate for sharing the Gospel with the unchurched. It provides encouragement, resources and networking for congregations as they reach out to the unchurched in their communities. The ministry of Jesus Christ is an outreach ministry. Each of the four Gospels ends with a commission from Christ to His church to carry the Gospel message to the ends of the earth (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-49; John 20:21-23; and see Acts 1:8).
