You are invited (and welcome!) to join us for Christian Life Academy and worship services on Sundays, or to one of our many Home Groups meeting throughout the week in the greater Greenville area.

We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that God is eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God the Father: the first person of the Trinity in authority who sovereignly reigns over His universe, Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ
God the Son: Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, born of a virgin, wholly man and wholly God, died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of mankind, arose from the grave defeating the power of sin and death
God the Holy Spirit: co-equal with the Father and Son, present in the world today to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ, living in every Christian from the moment of salvation
Salvation is a free gift of God provided through Jesus Christ, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for those who believe.
The church is a congregation of baptized believers under the headship of Jesus Christ, with the purpose of glorifying God and making disciples.
Every person will be judged by the Lord Jesus Christ upon their death and will be raised again: the saved to eternal life with our Lord and Savior, the lost to eternal torment in hell and separation from God.
Two circumstances in 1889 led to the formation of Pendleton Street Baptist Church (West End Baptist Church), in Greenville, SC. First, a burgeoning population growth was taking place on the west side of the Reedy River. Second, these residents were finding it difficult, if not impossible at times, to ford the then un-bridged Reedy in order to attend Greenville First Baptist Church on West McBee Avenue downtown. Therefore, on March 3, in a room over Gibbs’ Grocery Store on Pendleton Street, a number of Greenville First Baptist Church members met as a mission Sunday School. The little mission grew quickly and one year later it was ready to become a church.
