We are a gospel-centered Baptist church in Simpsonville, SC committed to gospel faithfulness, biblical community, and intentional disciple making.
We strongly believe that the most important instrument in the room when we gather is the congregation's voice; therefore, we make intentional decisions about the songs we sing, the instrumentation we use, and the volume of the instrumentalists and singers on stage.
Take a moment to listen, learn, and prepare to sing loudly as we gather to proclaim Christ together!

The Origin of Paul’s Gospel
11 For I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel preached by me is not of human origin. 12 For I did not receive it from a human source and I was not taught it, but it came by a revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For you have heard about my former way of life in Judaism: I intensely persecuted God’s church and tried to destroy it. 14 I advanced in Judaism beyond many contemporaries among my people, because I was extremely zealous for the traditions of my ancestors. 15 But when God, who from my mother’s womb set me apart and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me, so that I could preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone. 17 I did not go up to Jerusalem to those who had become apostles before me; instead I went to Arabia and came back to Damascus.
18 Then after three years I did go up to Jerusalem to get to know Cephas, and I stayed with him fifteen days. 19 But I didn’t see any of the other apostles except James, the Lord’s brother. 20 I declare in the sight of God: I am not lying in what I write to you.
21 Afterward, I went to the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 22 I remained personally unknown to the Judean churches that are in Christ. 23 They simply kept hearing, “He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith he once tried to destroy.” 24 And they glorified God because of me.
Paul Defends His Gospel at Jerusalem
1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along also. 2 I went up according to a revelation and presented to them the gospel I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those recognized as leaders. I wanted to be sure I was not running, and had not been running, in vain. 3 But not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek. 4 This matter arose because some false brothers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus in order to enslave us. 5 But we did not give up and submit to these people for even a moment, so that the truth of the gospel would be preserved for you.
6 Now from those recognized as important (what they once were makes no difference to me; God does not show favoritism) — they added nothing to me. 7 On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel for the uncircumcised, just as Peter was for the circumcised, 8 since the one at work in Peter for an apostleship to the circumcised was also at work in me for the Gentiles. 9 When James, Cephas, and John — those recognized as pillars — acknowledged the grace that had been given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to me and Barnabas, agreeing that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 They asked only that we would remember the poor, which I had made every effort to do.
We pursue gospel faithfulness by making Jesus Christ and His redeeming work for sinners the primary focus of everything we do.
Life is not meant to be lived alone. In fact, Christians are called by God to live in community with one another under the authority of His Word.

we offer 2 Core Classes that continue year round. Core Classes are seminar-style classes that are intentionally designed to help us explore the overarching truths of God, His Word, and the Christian Life.
For these classes, we use a curriculum created by Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.
The Systematic Theology Core Class is a year-long study of a multitude of topics such as: the doctrine of the Word, the doctrine of God, the doctrine of salvation, the doctrine of the Church, and several other key doctrines of orthodox, evangelical Christianity.
