History of FCFM
Friendship Christian Fellowship Ministries was organized in Temple Hills, Maryland under the leadership of Minister Jeffery W. Jackson with the blessing and support of First Lady Sheree A. Jackson who serves along side him. This ministry evolved after a gathering with core group members on January 21, 2010 to cast a vision for forming the church, Friendship Christian Fellowship East, and another gathering on February 21, 2010 to commission Minister Jeffery Jackson to give leadership to this ministry. A Christ-Centered Church, Friendship Christian Fellowship Ministries (FCFM) was Incorporated on March 3, 2010. We count it a true blessing and give all thanks and praises to God and say, “Look what the Lord has done!”
Friendship Christian Fellowship Ministries is a Body of Believers that has a Mission: Exalt the Savior, Evangelize the Sinner, Equip the Saint, and Be Effective in Serving Others. The Vision God has given us Pastor and this Ministry is: To Get Lives That Have Been Derailed, Discouraged and Distracted Back On Track With God. In keeping with Acts 2:42-47, our organization is Bible-based and purpose-driven, centered on the word P.R.A.Y.E.R.—Prayer Intercessors, Relationships, Administration, Youth, Evangelism, Rejoice. These six ministry areas are designed to provide a distinct, divine alternative to the world’s approach to living, beginning within the church and extending to the world. These are the foundational pillars: Faith, Family, Finances, Forgiveness, Foundational Doctrine, and Frangelism (Evangelism). We believe that the Bible is the undisputed authority for church order and government.
Many lives have been changed through the anointed, powerful preaching and teaching of Pastor Jeffery W. Jackson. He is an anointed “Man of God” touching lives of the people of God giving evidence that he is indeed an anointed “Servant of God.” He not only talks-the-talk, but walks-the-walk exhibiting a “demonstrative faith” and love of God, like none other, because “he has been called to serve.”
Under his leadership, our ministry has grown to over 80 members since April 4, 2010 and God’s flock continues to flourish. Pastor Jackson’s bible-based teaching has given birth to several ministries which include: Elders Ministry, Deacons Ministry, Deaconess Ministry, Stewards Ministry, Administration Ministry, Missionary Ministry, Music Ministry, Intercessory Prayer Ministry, Ushers & Greeters Ministry, Christian Education Ministry, Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Culinary Ministry, Children’s Church Ministry, Facilities Ministry, Liturgical Dance Ministry, Security Ministry, Audio/Media Ministry and KIT (Keep In Touch) Ministry. Additional leaders and ministries are being developed to meet the spiritual and practical needs of the membership and the community.
As our name implies, we at Friendship Christian Fellowship Ministries show ourselves friendly with unconditional, Godly love and affectionately embrace and love-on one another with a hug or hand shake during worship service or whenever we fellowship one with another.
At FCFM, we are committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people and to help meet the spiritual and social needs of the community—Reaching “One Friend At A Time.”
