From a church, to Bible classes, to a literature library mobile boat, Friendship Ministries is about sharing the love of Jesus and discipling believers throughout Bangladesh in strategic ways.
In the 1970s Pastor Salim started small Bible classes in his area, which later became Friendship Bible Church, a blossoming and growing community of believers dedicated to knowing Jesus and making him known. Using this church as a ministry hub, other outreaches like a Jesus Film video program, theology training schools, and even a football (soccer) team have been born to do evangelism throughout the country.
All of it aims to meet needs, meet people, and introduce Jesus to people who don't yet know Him. Now led by Pastor Ajit, Friendship Ministries works “in response to the Great commission to make disciples of Jesus in Bangladesh.”
That God would keep the enemy far from the students in the Bible school. That the students (many of them from Muslim or Hindu backgrounds) would be emboldened to study the Word of God amidst opposition.
For the players on the soccer team. That God would provide for their needs and give them boldness and opportunities to share truth.
That God would save those who have and will hear the gospel through the many outreaches of Friendship Ministries
That the Friendship church would grow in faithfulness to Jesus and in number of those who are being saved
