Early Beginnings....



Our Faithful Journey...


Rev. Robert Fulton Davis accepted a call to the preaching ministry in the early 1940's.   Later in 1955, he was led to organize a church and fondly named it Friendly Temple.  During his tenure the church cultivated charter members who would become foundational witnesses helping to create a ministry of hope in an urban community later to be called a wilderness.   As the church grew in vision and determination, Pastor Davis was providentially nurturing one to walk in his footsteps.   And before climbing the eternal mountain to glory, he like Moses spiritually passed the torch to one whom God had pre-ordained to lead His people into the next level of blessings.


The succession of Moses and Joshua is a Biblical fact: our next leader is in the likeness of Joshua, one names Rev. Michael F. Jones, Sr.  He was given the torch, which he has carried high casting a bright light into the lives of an ever-growing congregation and developing community.  He has continued to build upon the foundation established by those early servants whose faith surpassed their abilities and circumstances.  After 39 blessed years of preparation for the promise, the leadership of Pastor Jones has extended our ministry into new heights, prompting an opportunity for the people of Friendly to celebrate over 63 years with great joy.   We firmly believe that the Lord has preserved our past, given provision for our present, and we anticipate Him honoring our future.
