We are a pre-denominational, locally governed body of believers committed to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We are a New Testament church, finding the authority for rule and practice in the writings of the New Testament, particularly the Acts and Epistles as these bodies of writings deal with the history, growth and conduct of the church. We speak where the Scriptures speak and are silent where Scriptures are silent. We seek fellowship with all who profess Jesus as Lord and who are willing to comply with the clear teachings of the New Testament. We seek for unity in essentials, freedom in matters of opinion, and love in all things. We are not the only Christians but seek to be Christian only.
Friends Community Church was started on Mother's Day, 1999. A core group of twelve people met for several months in the recreation room in Saltville. In September 1999, we held our first public service at Saltville Elementary School. We continued to meet there until 2001 when we were blessed to purchase the building on Palmer Avenue. Our church building, which at one time housed the Piggly Wiggly and later the Family Dollar Store, is directly across the street from the Saltville Post Office.
