ST. MATTHEW BAPTIST CHURCH
What a joy it is to introduce you to our church!
You'll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God.
At St. Matthew Baptist Church, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds,
regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.
We are a multigenerational church located in the city of North Charleston and our goal is to infuse life and God's love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.
Together, we're striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there's
relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we'd like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.
So, if you are still just checking out the "church scene" and investigating the claims of Jesus
Christ, thank you for allowing us to help you in your search. Or, if you are a committed Christ-follower who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at St. Matthew Baptist Church.
God bless you,
St. Matthew Baptist Church
