The Priesthood

The Priesthood consists of all ministers of Edgefield Baptist Church. "The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD." (Luke 4:18-19)

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." (I Peter 2:9)

Ministries of Helps

Four Friends is four prayer intercessors who are responsible for praying and interceding for the Pastor, the church, and specific prayer requests. "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." (Matthew 18:19)

Gideon's Army
is the men's ministry of Edgefield. They seek to encourage men to use their gifts in service to Christ. Their goal is to strengthen the impact of Godly men through prayer and accountability and to reach out to other men. "And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, "The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!" (Judges 6:12)

Vessels of God is the women's ministry of Edgefield. This ministry serves to encourage and promote the spiritual development of all women by enhancing the spiritual, emotional and personal growth of each woman. We are concerned with the total woman. "But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work." (2 Timothy 2:20-21)

Edgefield Ushers ensure that the needs and comfort of all God's people are met. They serve as watchmen. These members aim is to make each individual in the congregation feel welcome and comfortable. They are responsible for maintaining order within the Lordship services. "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness." (Psalm 84:10)

The Nurses of Edgefield are prepared at all times for any emergency that may arise. They are there to attend to the sick. They provide medical attention during the worship service in response to medical emergencies. "And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward." (Matthew 10:42)  
Edgefield's Courtesy Guild is committed to creating a warm and welcoming environment to visitors, and our loving church family that displays that EDGEFIELD is the world’s friendliest Church.

(Romans 12:10)  
Taking it to the Streets 
Edgefield Outreach Ministry is a bible based Ministry to the hungry, the emotionally wounded, and the spiritually impoverished in our local communities and beyond. The Great Commission of Christ remains our challenge, evangelism our goal. We have a vision to carry the gospel to everyone that is lost, we have a mission of love and compassion, and we must reach the lost. Piercing the night with the light of truth, pointing the way to the cross, we must reach the lost! It is our prayer that everyone who gives his life to Christ through our ministry will have this same vision of evangelism as his main aim. It is our desire to lift people from every walk of life. It is our prayer that this ministry grows and God raises up more men and women to reach the entire world for His kingdom.

"...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me."  (Matthew  25:35-36)
