But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18
Edgewood Baptist Church exists to honor and glorify God by obeying Jesus' command to make disciples of all people.
Reaching our community and beyond with the good news that Jesus saves.
Teaching believers through the Bible how to love God and love their neighbors as themselves.
Equipping those believers and sending them back out into the world to share with others the story of how Jesus saved them.
We care about people because God cares about people. God desires for His children to experience abundant life in Him. Our vision is to engage, encourage, equip and expand our community to experience this life each and every day through the love and encouragement of Christ. We believe that we can't do life alone, that growing people change, that saved people serve people, and that found people find people.
We pray that Edgewood Baptist Church can make a Kingdom impact at a global and local level. We have a passion to continue growing and impacting lives and to reach people for Jesus Christ.
In September of 1952, the J.C. Faucette Sr. family was gathered at the home of Mr. Sam D. Faucette. A discussion arose concerning the need of and a desire for a church in the immediate community. The J.C. Faucette Jr. family promptly offered a tract of land for the church site, as well as $100.00 in cash to get the project going. Later, Mrs. Inez Faucette contacted the Mount Zion Baptist Association for assistance in furthering this endeavor. Reverend E. Cleve Wilkie, the current Associational Missionary, suggested that the group begin holding services in a cinder block building owned by Mr. and Mrs. Lacy Lashley. With the sponsorship of Swepsonville Baptist Church, services were conducted at that site until a church sanctuary was completed at the corner of Dodson Road and Edgewood Church Road, the church’s present location. There were forty-eight charter members.
Through the years, sixteen pastors have been called to lead the good people of Edgewood Baptist Church, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Reverend W.A. Smith was called as the first pastor. Our current pastor is Darrell Moser.
It was our great pleasure to observe Edgewood’s “Golden Jubilee” in September 2002, celebrating fifty years of God’s goodness and grace to His people. Reverend E. Paul West, retired pastor of Swepsonville Baptist Church, was our guest speaker, and it was a particular joy to have six of the forty-eight original charter members in attendance.
It is our prayer as people of God that He will be uplifted, glorified, magnified, and proclaimed throughout our community and the world as we yield to His direction and His will for our church. And for fifty years from now may those that remain say that the congregation of Edgewood Baptist Church was a group of believers who loved their Lord and brought glory to His Name by loving their neighbors as themselves.

Scripture / Inspiration
We affirm that the Bible, both the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament are inspired by God, though written by men. These men were inspired by God and therefore wrote the infallible Word of God that stands as the ultimate authority in all issues.
We affirm that the salvation of man is reliant totally upon the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Only by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone may a person be saved from their sins and given assurance of heaven and brought into the family of God.
We affirm that we believe in one Almighty God who exists in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one each with a distinct function and person.
We affirm that baptism is one of only two ordinances given to be administered by the local church to believers in Christ. It is a symbol and a testimony, of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and nothing more. It is only to be administered by a professing Christian, following salvation. In no way does it impart salvation to a person, or does it wash the sins of that person away. In addition, the only proper method of baptism is by submersion. In this way we observe how baptism has been observed both historically and Scripturally. Also, submersion is the only accurate representation of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
We affirm that once a person is born again and brought into an intimate relationship with Christ, their salvation cannot be lost. Once the relationship of God being one’s heavenly father has been established then that relationship may not be lost. Only the fellowship may be broken by that person’s choice to willfully commit sin.
We affirm that the church, a local body of believers, is God’s instrument for ministry as well as Christ’s bride. The church is the self-governing body of believers, baptized by submersion, that are under the headship and Lordship of Christ as well as the Holy Scriptures. It is their mission to evangelize, minister, and teach believers in Christ as well as to be a witness within their community. Its role is defined by the spiritual gifts of each believer within the church. These members are also commissioned to be light and salt within the community.
We affirm that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity, He is God, and has been from eternity past. Born of the Virgin Mary by a miracle of the Holy Spirit, He is the Messiah. Christ is the Savior of the world, who died upon Calvary’s cross to pay the sin debt of the world and rose again on the third day conquering death. He is the only way to salvation, and Lord of all.
We affirm that the Holy Spirit is the third person of Trinity who is equal in deity with God the Father and Christ. He is the agent by whom the scripture was inspired, and the sins convicted. He also dwells within all believers and sanctifies them to conformity to the image of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We affirm that evangelism is the duty and the mission of every believer within the body of Christ. Evangelism is the charge to take the Gospel of Christ to a dark and dying world. It tells of the love Christ has for them, as well as Christ desire to know them in an intimate way. Evangelism is the call to bring others to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with him.
