The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of South Carolina was organized in 1991 by a grassroots movement of free and faithful Baptists. We are a fellowship of Baptist Christians and churches who share a passion for the Great Commission of Jesus Christ, a commitment to Baptist principles of faith and practice, and heart for missions service.
