Mission and Vision
Our MissionSaint John Baptist Church is committed to the Great Commission as stated by Jesus in Matthew 28:19, 20 'Go Ye Therefore And Teach All Nations, Baptizing Them In The Name Of The Father, And The Son, And The Holy Ghost: Teaching Them To Observe All Things Whatsoever I Have Commanded You: And Lo I AM With You Always, Even To The End Of The World. Amen."
In keeping with that "Great Commission", the Congregation of Saint John, a Missionary Baptist Church, is committed to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, leading souls to salvation, growing in grace through the study of God's Word - The Holy Bible and submission to the guiding influence of the Holy Spirit to love, and care for all people of God's creation.
Our VisionSaint John Baptist Church envisions itself to become one of South Carolina's most recognized Baptist Churches for building Christian families and Christ-centered communities through evangelism, education, and economic empowerment.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 says "And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time."
Today, as we continue to build Christian families and Christ centered communities through evangelism, education, and economic empowerment; we have identified a need for a new Saint John Preschool and Family Life Center to address the needs of the community. In order for this vision to become a reality, a 3 Year Debt Retirement Campaign has been launched to continue providing quality education to our children. In addition, this effort will fund outreach ministries for our youth and seniors, provide economic empowerment to provide jobs, and incorporate health and wellness activities for our community.
The 3 Year Debt Retirement Campaign is requesting $1000 contributions from members and non-members. If $1000 is too great a commitment, we ask that you give $500. If $500 is too great a commitment, we ask that you give $250.00. If $250 is too great a commitment, we ask that you give what you can. Your contribution (no matter how big or how small to this campaign) will help us free up funds to make our vision a reality.
