Covenant Baptist Church number one task is to glorify God. Secondly, to proclaim the gospel of the risen Savior, and thirdly, to advance the kingdom that God is building in our local area as well as around the world.
Covenant Baptist Church seeks to be a transforming presence in the heart of West Columbia and the surrounding communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Covenant Baptist Church desires to advance the Kingdom of God worldwide by engaging every member of the congregation in the church’s missions program by sharing resources for the ministry of Christ in word as well as in deed, and in sending workers to partner with other Christians in the building of the church in West Columbia as well as to the ends of the earth.
Covenant Baptist Church is currently involved in mission work in the following areas:
India: Carried on since 2001 by a group of members and non-members called The Mission Team. Each March the Mission Team goes to minister in Andhra Pradesh, India. The financial needs for this ministry and giving opportunities are listed here.
We’ve begun working with our sister church in Guntur, India to start an orphanage for street children. Read more about it here.
Since 2012 Covenant Baptist Church has partnered with a local ministry in Ahero, Kenya named Benard’s Vision. Also, the Mission Team travels to Kenya each August. Benard’s Vision is a ministry that is bringing the Gospel to Kenya in two major ways. One way is through the equipping of Kenyan pastors with biblical training via an annual pastors’ conference. The other is through educating over 800 orphans with Bible-based curriculum.
The financial needs for this ministry and giving opportunities are listed here.
Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA:
In 2020, the Lord answered our prayers about extending Covenant Baptist’s local missions effort through the Corral family in Rock Hill, SC. Mark Corral and his family have been praying about and preparing for starting a church plant in the Northeast Columbia area. After some discussion with our elders, the decision to put the church plant in the Rock Hill area was made. Mark is now an elder-in-training with Covenant Baptist Church for this church plant. The church plant officially met for the first time on July 26, 2020. Please pray for the Rock Hill church plant and the Corral family. If you would like more info, contact any of the elders or elders-in-training at Covenant. Read more here.
