Welcome to Friendship Baptist Church

515 Richland Ave E, Aiken, SC 29801


Blessings to you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Here at Friendship Baptist Church in Aiken, SC, we seek to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ, to promote Christian fellowship, spiritual growth among its members, Bible study, instruction in Bible Doctrine, and to combine the efforts of individual members in evangelism, mission, education, and benevolence.

Here, we are a family – not always perfect, but still bound together by something more significant than we are. Centered on God’s Word, and empowered by His Holy Spirit, together we seek to be the kind of congregation our Lord has called us to be. And we would love to have you join us! We would love to welcome you in worship and other goings-on here; we would love for you to come to get to know our family so that we may worship and serve the Lord together. Here on this site, you should be able to find the info you need to come to check us out. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail or phone.

Yours In Christ,
Reverend Clinton Edwards, Jr.  MDiv
First Lady Robbin K. Edwards

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter;


The earliest written history of Friendship African Baptist Church, tells of a group of worshippers who gathered to worship in a brush harbor on Kershaw Street on the southern side of the railroad tracks.


The purpose of this Church shall be to foster and maintain public worship, to carry out the great Commission of Jesus Christ, to promote Christian fellowship, spiritual growth among its members, Bible study, instruction in Bible Doctrine,
