Merry Christmas New Friendship Family!

At this most wonderful time of the year, it is almost impossible to simplify our busy, busy lives. But the uniqueness of this special season and its beauty lie in its simplicity. A simplicity that is far too often overlooked and forgotten.  Read these words one more time… “And she brought forth her firstborn Son, […]

“Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how […]

“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” ~ Hebrews 10:24-25 As if we needed one more reason to miss […]

It’s amazing how many people want to be instant theologians and Bible scholars when pushed to defend what they are determined to do.  Almost humorously, if not so pitifully sad, unfaithful partners have tried in vain to defend their actions biblically.  In spite of the Bible’s clear warnings about alcohol consumption, those who are committed […]

“He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6 NKJV I’ve been thinking today about EMPTY things. A physical law states that a vacuum seeks to be filled. An EMPTY mind craves knowledge. An EMPTY stomach desires food. EMPTY arms hope to be […]

In January of 2011, New Friendship Baptist Church celebrated 184 years of ministry. Our congregation existed before the Liberty Baptist Association of Thomasville, the Baptist State Convention of NC or the Southern Baptist Convention. In 1827, our community was just a maze of dirt roads and scattered farms, but it was the Holy Spirit who […]

When I was a child, our church music hymnal contained these lyrics: “Do you REALLY want revival? Do you REALLY want God’s power? Do you REALLY want His Spirit to control your life this hour?” What a piercing question. Extended church meetings can be wonderful when the speaker is engaging, when the music is uplifting, […]
