Why Affiliate?

Because we can take the Gospel further faster when we work together.

What does affiliation mean?

We believe each church has a unique relationship with God. But we also recognize that we have a shared mission to go and make disciples of all nations.

When churches affiliate with the South Carolina Baptist Convention, they are investing in that shared mission.

What is the Cooperative Program?

The Cooperative Program is how we fund ministry in our state and around the world. As affiliate churches give to the Cooperative Program, they are working toward a common goal of sharing the Gospel with everyone, everywhere.
