Why become a Cooperating Church?

Because "two are better than one (Ecc. 4:9)." We can take the Gospel further faster when we work together.


What does being a Cooperating Church 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 cooperate with the South Carolina Baptist Convention, they are investing in that shared mission.

What is the Cooperative Program?

The Cooperative Program is our primary method for funding ministry in our state and around the world. As churches give through the Cooperative Program, they are working toward a common goal of sharing the Gospel with everyone, everywhere.
