Welcome to Clarendon Baptist Church
A Brief History
Clarendon Baptist Church was organized March 19, 1908, at "Institute Hall" in Manning, SC. It was not until August of that year that the church began with a regular pastor. The first two years after the church was organized, services were held in Manning, inside the Court house. Spring of 1910, the church was able to move to Alcolu, to a temporary building known as "The Chapel." Membership had increased to 85 and by 1914 a new building was decided on and it was completed by autumn of 1914 and dedicated on September 13, 1914.
Clarendon Baptist Church is a Bible Believing-Mission Minded Church. Our Mission is to carry out the Great Commission of our Savior, to foster and maintain public worship, and to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
