Greater Friendship Christian Church, as it is today, evolved from Steele’s Memorial Baptist Church, which was established in 1915. Steele’s Memorial was located in the East End of Little Rock and acquired its name out of respect for a former pastor, Rev. Jack Steele. From 1915 to the present day, the church membership has followed the leadership of numerous pastors and has built new facilities on two occasions. The first new construction was completed on East Ninth Street, about five blocks from the original location. In the spring of 1964, the second construction of new facilities was completed in the heart of the Granite Mountain Community.

The church remains in this location.

Greater Friendship is more than just a name, but a definition of who we strive to be while “Serving God by Serving Man”


We believe...

 The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God

We believe...

that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe...

in the blessed hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God which is in Christ at His return.

We believe...

that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance, faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ and being baptized in the water.

We believe...

that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe...

in the sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in this present world.
