"Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness" - Psalm 96:9
First Baptist Church embraces an order of worship that is liturgical, yet vibrant. Deriving from the Charleston Tradition of Baptist worship, our service is formal, with a strong emphasis being placed on the proclamation of scripture and the formation of the faith community through prayer and praise. First Baptist Church follows the seasons of the Christian Year as a means of marking time together, and preaching is normally based on readings from the Revised Common Lectionary. Our ministers wear robes as a symbol of our unity in Christ, and music centers around strong choral/congregational singing and our historic pipe organ. We celebrate the ordinance of communion on the first Sunday of each month, and this observance is open to all persons, regardless of age or church affiliation.
