To me, finding Christian friends is so important. These are people that God gives you so you can lean on one another, so that you can count on each other for prayer and encouragement and understanding.

Finding these friends can be hard, but when you do they are precious. Some ways to find friends who hold the same beliefs and values are….

1. Make friends at church
Church is a great place to make friends because that is where Christians go! I do not think that all people who go to church are Christians and that is sad, but it really is a good place to start. Be outgoing and get involved in a Bible study, youth group, or mission team. Friendships that are Christ-centered are the strongest, and longest lasting friendships you will make.

 2. Join a group online
It is a great idea to join a Christian book club online, or a Bible study. I know these relationships aren’t face to face, but they are wonderful for prayer and encouragement.

3. Tell your friends about your faith
If you tell your friends about your faith, you may find someone who believes the same way you do.

These are just a few ways to find friends who share your beliefs. What do you look for in a friend? What types of friendships do you think are the best? I am very interested in this and would love to hear from you!

Blessings In Christ,

  1. I think you are right. Be who you are, faith included, and let is speak for itself. I have made friends who were not Christian people, but we were able to relate on some level. If you are trying to get connected, the church is the first place to start in my opinion.
