Our Story

How it all started. . .

First Baptist Church of Walterboro orginated October 17, 1858, and was located at the  of corner of present day Wichman and Fishburne Streets. In 1875, the property was sold to Walterboro African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Following a period of silence influenced by the Civil War,  the church acquired property on the corner of Neyle and Miller Streets on October 20, 188. The original building  was destroyed by hurricane, and reconstruction was completed in 1897.

In 1950, we purchased the property at the corner of Hampton Street & Memorial Avenue, and a brand new building was dedicated on October 3, 1954. Sadly, the sanctuary was consumed by fire on December 10, 1963. Not to be deterred, reconstruction began right away and the restored facility was dedicated on May 8, 1966.

Expanding the vision. . .

While we cherish our history, we also recognize that both the church and its community are constantly changing. Therefore, we use our legacy as an inspiration to move forward and reach
the next generation of believers.

Where we are headed. . .

Our members and staff are committed to creating and participating in loving fellowship that includes people from all walks of life. We strive to reach all people during worship services as we proclaim the teaching of Jesus Christ, our Savior.
