It is easy to guess what will happen to a boat that is merely pulled alongside the dock but never secured to it. The movement of the tide will all too quickly set the boat drifting, ever farther from its place. In the course of a few hours the boat will be out of reach, and probably out of sight by the next day. Thus it is with our current world. Drifting ever farther from its place in God's will, our modern society is adrift and confused, wandering and deceived. Our current world system thinks the farther we are from God, the happier and healthier our society. The Church, on the other hand, is where people are firmly planted in the knowledge of God's will, no longer children tossed here and there by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, and by skilled deceivers. At Covenant we seek to minister and build in truth according to the Word of God. "Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path" so that we do not have to stumble in darkness. We welcome all to seek the Lord with us.
"To suppose that whatever God requireth of us that we have the power of ourselves to do, is to make the cross of Christ of none effect."
Our church facilities are located in the Orangeburg, SC area. We formed in 1988 seeking a place for biblical fellowship and the systematic proclamation of the inerrant Word of God. As mentioned above, we are a small fellowship of believers within the Southern Baptist denomination. We are not party or supportive of any departure from the Bible that leaders in the SBC might have done or may do in the future. Southern Baptist churches come in a variety of manifestations--not all good. But as Southern Baptists we are autonomous from the dictates of the convention itself, and our church chooses to be ruled by the Bible first and foremost.
Our church building is located on Cannon Bridge Road, about 4.5 miles from Highway 601 in Orangeburg. Taking Highway 601 south out of Orangeburg, take the first left after crossing the Edisto River. This will be Cannon Bridge Road. Our building is on the right, set back from the road, but our church sign is right alongside the road. Most people use GPS navigation these days so it is hoped these brief directions are sufficient. Please call for further guidance.
