Welcome to Friendship!
For 50 years, Friendship has held forth in its mission outpost at the corner of Robinson and Terrace Streets, in the low-income, urban community of West Oakland.
Over the years Friendship has consistently been a place where the saving grace of Jesus Christ has been boldly proclaimed, in fidelity to God’s Holy Word. It has been a spiritually and emotionally safe place where hurting people can experience God’s love through a tight-knit, caring community.
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." - Jesus

and strangers, as local as Oakland and as distant as
