Friends, often known as Quakers, are a historic Christian denomination. founded by George Fox in 1647, the group soon spread to America, where there are over 130,000 members across the United States.
The Friends derive their names from the words of Christ as recorded in John 15:15, "I have called you Friends." Friends are orthodox and evangelical in their position on all the great beliefs of the church. We accept the doctrines of the Apostolic church and distinctively emphasize the truth that the Holy Spirit enlightens every heart to reveal its condition and makes the individual sense the need of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
South Fork Friends is a group of people who loves God and honors Christ as Savior and Lord. We regard the scripture as the foundational rule of conduct for our lives.
While we are in agreement with the historic beliefs of the church, we insist that these beliefs should never become static, as merely articles of faith to be subscribed to, but should be dynamic in the lives of God's people, alive out in the world.
South Fork is a part of Atlantic Friends Christian Ministries, a new organization with the hope to help disciples make new disciples, leaders mentor new leaders, and churches planting new churches.
