  • Just went to the 29th annual spectacular last evening. A cast of over 400 put on a patriotic show that is good for all ages. Music, singing, video..... A tribute to America. Two shows: 4:30 & 7:30. FR...  read more »
  • Get your tickets early if you want to see this incredible Christmas Production. There is a lot of seats, but this is very popular during the Christmas Season. A great place for Sunday Morning as well. 
  • While not the formal music of a "high church" service, the choir and congregational worship is just terrific on an every Sunday basis. Depending on your church background, the church size intimidates ...  read more »
  • The First Baptist Church is a beautiful venue for a gathering, located just off of Main Street in Columbia, SC. It is of historic importance because it was the original site that SC decided to secede from the Union in 1860. However, due to a reported outbreak of smallpox across the street, the meeting was adjourned to Charleston a few days later where the secession documents were signed. Also, when Sherman came through to burn Columbia for its sins, they planned on burning this building but someone on the outside told the troops that the First Baptist Church was located elsewhere. The troops burned that church down instead. Allegedly anyway.
  • #Propaganda and fear tactics used against the people who attend this hate filled bigoted racist church who should be paying taxes.
  • Beautiful musics, people, building and fantastic pastor who preaches HIS WORD, not just one of the newer, touchy-feely, feel-good, leaving you with warm-fuzzies preachers that is more worried with making sure everyone leaves feeling good about themselves. Pastor Estep clearly cares and is more worried about your soul and walk with God than he is about you feeling good about yourself and going on as "everything's fine". I loved my visit and if I was to move to anywhere within driving distance, my family would join in a heartbeat! Keep doing God's work FBC!!
  • Without question this is one of the most wonderful churches we have had a privileged to be a part of and member of in our lifetime. It's not about the building, it's not about the church, it's not about the members, it is all about HIM, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! It just hits you, through and through, as you are greeted by the smiling members, always with a welcome, Spiritual hand shake, and sometimes a pat on the back! I was a Lutheran for 62 years, and before our marriage in 1962, my wife was a Baptist. God has Blessed us with three wonderful boys/men. Kyle, Todd, and Timothy. Little did I know what I have missed over the years. It's not that a Baptist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, Catholic or others, will be assured that you will go to Heaven when you depart this earth ........ you can not earn your way into heaven! You MUST accept Jesus Christ into your heart publicly and as we Baptist publicly do, be Baptized by total immersion into the Boy of Christ. God Bless First Baptist Church, Hampton Street, Columbia, SC. If you are looking for a church home, our doors are always open ..... you are welcomed. Come as you are ..... "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." -- JOHN 2:16 Holy Bible - NASB ...
  • This is a great church that has a great servants heart and models meeting needs as Christ commissioned us to do as His followers. The messages, as well as, worship is excellent and some of the most friendly people I have ever met!
