We at St. Bartholomew are . . .
Christian Followers of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord who seek to fully worship God, to love our neighbor as we love ourselves and to proclaim through the power of the Holy Spirit the Good News that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that those who believe in him shall have eternal life.
Anglican We are part of the Body of Christ: The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus ca. 33 AD and draw our Christian roots from the Church in Britain established during the apostolic era. As such, we subscribe to the Holy Bible as containing all things necessary for salvation, the Historic Creeds of the Catholic (Universal) Church and Anglican formularies and are both Catholic and Reformed.
Episcopal We are governed by a Bishop and successor to the Holy Apostles and subscribe to three Biblical orders of ministry that come from the people (laity): Deacons, Priests, and Bishops. The Rt Rev Mark J. Lawrence, is the XIV Bishop of South Carolina and provides episcopal care and oversight to the parish.
Not perfect but are forgiven sinners and invite you to join us for Worship, Christian Education, Service and Proclamation of the Gospel. It has been said that the church is both a hospital for sinners and a gymnasium for making saints.
Where do I start? Join us for worship, the best way to know what we do, is to experience what we do in community.
