WHO WE ARE
Living in Christ, Loving like Christ, Leading others to Christ
Identiy and Purpose
PHBC is a local church congregation within the religious denomination known as the Southern Baptist Convention and is affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention and the Edisto Baptist Association. The church is organized exclusively for religious purposes: to provide regular opportunities for public worship; to sustain the ordinances, doctrines, and ethics set forth in the New Testament for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; to lead people to Jesus Christ and in the fellowship of His Church; to develop believers in discipleship to be Christ-like; to equip members for their service in the church and their evangelism of the world; to exercise discipline; and to make ordination to sacred office.
Statement of Faith
The church affirms the Holy Bible, composed of the Scriptures contained in the Old and New Testaments, as the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the only objective foundation for the understanding and practice of the Christian faith, and the final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind. We believe there is one true and living God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe people receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe Christ is the head of the Church, which is composed of all true disciples of Christ, and that the local church is a congregation of baptized believers voluntarily united for the purposes of worshipping God and promoting the cause of the Gospel.
