About Blythe Island Baptist Church

Blythe Island Baptist Church is a place where people experience the love of Christ and it compels them to live an authentic life of faith. Many who gave up on church, because of a bad experience, return to find genuine acceptance rather than judgment.

It is a place where biblical teaching is relevant to life and worship stems from a deep gratitude and passion to know and love God. Groups of people meet during the week to study the Bible and find ways to serve others. People are challenged and inspired to grow through their pain, doubts, hang-ups and triumphs. It is a place where families find encouragement and support that equips them for the storms of life.

We work together, pray together, laugh together, worship together, eat together, struggle together, and celebrate together the joy of an unselfish life as we live in the hope of Christ. We are just a group of imperfect people striving to live a life for God. No matter where you are in this life, we hope you’ll find a place to connect to Jesus and one another at BIBC. Connecting people is what we’re all about. If you are looking for a place to change the world and love on imperfect people, BIBC is hiring passionate people.
