Church planting roots…

A small group of twenty-two courageous people came to Chatata Valley in the spring of 1835. Although still part of the Cherokee Nation, the group gathered by Chatata Creek with the desire to start a church. On the second Saturday of April, 1835, New Friendship Baptist Church was constituted as a church.

Current partnerships…

New Friendship continues to serve Chatata Valley and surrounding areas with the same courageous missionary spirit of our founders. Currently, we are partnering with two church plants in Tennessee: The Fellowship Church in Sweetwater and Living Water Church in Murfreesboro.  Also, our local association has a partnership with two churches through NAMB’s Send North America initiative, which we support in prayer, people, and provision.

Our pastor was given the opportunity to go on a Vision Tour to Washington DC and meet with Send DC coordinator, Clint Clifton and several DC church planters.  Pastor Eric returned to DC in March 2015 with a mission team from the Bradley Baptist Association to work with church planters Zack Randles, Waterfront Church DC, and Zack Bekele, Gilgal Ethiopian Church.  In October 2015, NFBC sent two adults and two students on the fall mission trip to Washington DC sponsored by the BBA.  We look forward to continuing this partnership through our association.
