About Us

Our theme for 2017 involves personal commitment to the Lord and to the ministry of our church family. I’m asking our members to step out of their comfort zone and step up to be available by following the guidance seen in Isaiah 6:8, “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” The wonderful thing about God’s work of salvation is that He allows us to assist in telling others the Good News! Will you answer the challenge? There is a place of service for everyone!

I have learned there is a very real difference between practicing religion and having a relationship with the Lord. At Forty-Fifth Street we do our best to create an atmosphere of worship and fellowship that allows you to establish and grow in your faith walk.

To our visitors on this site, we are so thankful that God led you to our on-line church home today. Prayerfully you can see that something special happens during our worship, what you see in our fellowship and walk. I hope this visit to our website will whet your appetite or spark your curiosity to one day join us in corporate worship. The fact is that one day in the presence of God in honest worship can make a real difference in your life.

Our prayer is that you will want to spend more than just this one visit with us…that while here you will sense the love of God and understand our three-fold purpose to introduce people to the love of Christ, to teach people about the life of the church and Christ, and to celebrate life with other people who love Christ.  We will regularly post our sermons and Bible studies if you are unable to be with us, so be sure to bookmark this page! Remember we’re just a click away!

Please take a moment and send us a message to thefriendliestchurch@gmail.com  so that we can have a record of your visit. Lastly, if we may be of assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us by phone, email or in person.

Prayerfully, after this online visit, you will want to put us to the test and experience why we are the friendliest church from the parking lot to the pulpit!

Yours in Christ,

Andra D. Sparks, Senior Pastor
