About Us

Our Mission

“Make disciples who enjoy, follow, and serve Jesus in all of life.”

Our Values

Gospel Focus

The Gospel is the power of God for salvation for all who believe. We proclaim and live in light of God’s grace for sinners in Jesus Christ.

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.

Colossians 1:28

Joyful Worship

We were created to worship God for all He is and all He has done. We respond in joyful worship with the full range of human emotions.

Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!

Psalm 47:1

I say to God, my rock: “Why have you forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

Psalm 42:9

Cultural Diversity

We pursue friendships and discipling relationships across ethnic and economic lines to build a culturally diverse church.

I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts.

Haggai 2:7

Hospitality

We open our homes to each other because gathering around a table is one of the best ways to love our neighbors.

So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.

1 Thessalonians 2:8

Mercy Ministry

We seek to alleviate material poverty in our community through education, mentoring, generosity, and friendship.

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

Jeremiah 29:7

Leadership

JP Sibley, church planter

Rev. J.P. Sibley is a church planter in his hometown, Orangeburg, SC, where God called him to return with his wife, Laurie and their children, Isaiah, Robbie and Brynn. Having grown up in the South amid stagnant race relations, God gave JP a deep passion for racial reconciliation and unity in the church. JP studied political science at Furman University and holds a Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary. He served as Assistant Pastor of Youth and Worship at Redeemer PCA in Greenville, SC for twelve years before moving back home in 2015.


Affiliations

Columbia Presbyterian Church

Our church was adopted in the early days by the elders of Columbia Pres. as a daughter church. Their leadership serves our church by providing guidance, accountability, financial support, and constant prayers. Their vision is to be a “church-planting church of disciple-making disciples.” Their support for our fledgling church is proof of that commitment.
