Worship Service Times

SUNDAY-9:45 Sunday School 
               10:45 Worship & The Word
We welcome you to Elmwood Church of God located at the corner of Elmwood Ave. and Bull Street in the heart of Columbia, SC. We are a fellowship of believers whose heart and passion is to know Jesus and to make Him known. We believe that God has strategically placed us where we are, for such a time as this to extend healing and restoration to a broken, hurting, and disillusioned world with the message of hope through Jesus Christ. We would absolutely love to have you join us in our effort to reach the harvest while it is still day.



bridging the gap 

Some 2,000 years ago, the most controversial figure in History, Jesus Christ, came to this earth.  He was born of a virgin, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and His birth was miraculous to say the least. Though He came into this world in a humble way, to a very normal couple, Jesus was God’s answer to humanity’s desperate need for salvation.
Doomed by our sin, we were separated from God and cut off from the richness of His blessings. God, because of His great love for us, wrapped Himself in humanity and came to earth as a simple man — Jesus. He lived and dwelt among us and eventually gave His life for us after 33 short years on earth, all because of His great love for lost humanity. The cost of our sin was His life, and He gave it that we might receive salvation through Him.
Jesus is the “bridge” between Man and God, that we may now have a direct and personal relationship with Him. John 3:16, one of the most well known passages of scripture, illustrates just this, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only son. That whoever believes in Him, will not perish but have everlasting life.”
Jesus became the bridge between mankind and God so that we can have a relationship with the God the Father. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, our Mediator, and our soon coming King.
Jesus came that we might have an abundant life. He came to carry our weaknesses, our sickness, and our pain, so that we can walk in total freedom, peace, power and purpose.
