The Sanctuary has been remodeled since my last visit. Fond memories were made in this Church when I was a student nurse @ the SC Baptist Hospital. We had our capping ceremony there, our choir sang there several times and also our Graduation Ceremony took place there. The Sanctuary is worth seeing.

When in the area, and sometimes specifically, we visit First Baptist Church - Columbia. It is a genuine worship experience!

A very vibrant congregation with a pastor that teaches from the Bible. The orchestra and choir were outstanding also!

If you happen to show up during the week, you may be disappointed. The church houses some artifacts, but it's not a tourist attraction. However, you can get brunch at the coffee shop and a quick overview of the history of the area.

If you are lucky enough to catch the Celebration of Liberty or the Christmas program, do it! Excellent free shows!
