Frequently Asked Questions

How big is Friendship-West?

We have approximately 12,000+ members. Since COVID-19, we have been able to reach a larger audience through our Live Streaming platforms (YouTube, Facebook, & LiveStream). You can expect to see a swath of persons from different locations across the United States and beyond in the comments section.

How many services do you have?

We currently have one live service on Sundays at 8 am PST/10 am CST/11 am EST and we have Bible Study on Wednesdays at 5 pm PST/7 CST/8 pm EST. We understand that everyone's schedules are different due to the current pandemic, so feel free to replay services on our YouTube, Facebook or LiveStream.

What are church office hours?

Our office hours are Monday-Thursday from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm. Staff members are currently working remote as a safety precaution in light of COVID-19 but we are always here to serve you virtually! Please shoot us an email or make a phone call when you are in need!

Can I join church online?

Of course! We have many e-members who don't live in the Dallas area but are a part of our Friendship-West family. You can also join if you live in the Dallas area and plan on attending services in person once in-person church services resume. Please see the "Join Church" in the navigation bar to learn more.

How can I let the church know that i am a visitor?

If you are a first time visitor or a visitor that hasn't had a chance to interact with our team, please text "FWVIZ" to 28950 so we can learn more about you!

How Can I Be Saved?

If you would like to be saved, all you need to do is confess that Jesus is your Lord and Savior and you can be saved. We are currently halting baptisms due to the current pandemic but you can always contact our Baptism Ministry at the church to begin to foster your new relationship with Christ. Please email baptism@friendshipwest.org to learn more.

Why are your services only available online?

We are commanded both to love God with all our being and to love our neighbor as ourselves!  Consequently, we are compassionately concerned for the safety and well-being of people in general and of our members, staff, volunteers, and visitors. To be clear, we have not closed the church; we have merely been redeployed. However, in an attempt to limit the spread of the novel Coronavirus and the impact of COVID-19, we have temporarily closed our facilities to the public and taken our services online. As we continue to practice the best safety protocols, only essential staff is allowed on site during services.  Please check our website and join us online not only on Sundays but for all of our service offerings.

How does your church help those in need?

Wow! We are so glad you asked! Friendship-West is here to be a game-changing Christian movement that fights for justice all while creating the beloved community. We do this through services like giving scholarships to college/grad students, feeding our VIPs (a.k.a. those who are houseless), supporting our Faith Formula Human Services organization (provides food, housing, and other services for those in need), and community outreach. We also believe that there would be no need for services if we lived in a JUST society. So we work on the other side with our social justice ministry which fights for fair lending practices, criminal justice reform, enivronmental justice, acceptable zoning, voting rights and more. You can learn more about our services and justice ministry by going to the Resources and/or Justice page.
