First Baptist Church of Columbia
Tuesday, July 22, 2014
 
In 1955, not one person in Columbia, SC could watch a worship service by television, that is, until First Baptist Church began broadcasting their live worship service in September of that year.  Today,  because of the vision of First Baptist Church, we now reach more than 75,000 viewers each week. Jesus calls each of us to be His witnesses throughout the world.  For over 56 years, First Baptist has  witnessed to "Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria" by broadcasting, first in Columbia, then Myrtle Beach/Florence and the Greenville areas.  In 2006, the television ministry was expanded to the Charleston, SC broadcast market.  Then in 2007, advances in technology allowed First Baptist to begin broadcasting our live worship services over the internet - "to the ends of the earth."  In early 2010, we added the Augusta, GA and Savannah, GA market areas. These are exciting times!  We are part of a team sharing the love of Jesus Christ to people all over the world. 
 
Along with broadcasting our worship service on television, we have expanded our reach through the internet and social media.  Each week our service is streamed live on the web!  Our new and social media department is busy developing new ways that our church can utilize twitter and facebook to reach the world with the message of Christ.

Just think...we are changing the lives of people we have never seen, living in places that we have never been!

Our media team is blessed with some very talented, dedicated volunteers.  And our team is growing! 
With the recent production room upgrades and additions to our production facility, we need many more
volunteers to serve one or two Sundays per month.  Go

We have a place for you!
