As pastor of Keowee Presbyterian Church, let me welcome you to our website and I hope eventually to our church. We have what I consider to be a wonderful and special community of believers called together to worship our Lord Jesus Christ. Under the direction of the Holy Spirit, we look to the Bible as God’s true and inerrant Word that leads and directs us to the truth and shows us Jesus.
Sometimes we describe ourselves as “being a mess!” What we mean by that is that we are real people who struggle with sin. Most of us are true believers in Jesus Christ (the rest still being seekers!) who have been redeemed and are being changed into His likeness. But like the apostle Paul, who at the end of his life described himself as being the ‘chief of sinners’ (1 Timothy 1:15), we are growing in understanding just how rebellious we still are and growing in understanding just how much we need Jesus. So, if you are perfect – or expect a perfect church – we are probably not the right congregation for you. But if you are a “mess” as well, you at least ought to come by for a visit. We would love to have you join us as we discover the transforming power of His grace.
We are affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America, a denomination that holds to the authority and truth of the Scriptures. I encourage you to look at our “About” page under “We Believe in the Church” to answer any other questions.
A special note for college students — As a former campus minister with The Navigators at Clemson University in Clemson, SC, I love to have college students as part of our congregation. Our elders were involved with RUF, Cru and The Navigators, so we all welcome you! We are within walking distance of Southern Wesleyan University and under 5 miles from Clemson University. We would love for you to make us your church home while in school.
May the Lord bless you.
By His grace,
Pastor, Ron Hughes
Listen to the word of the Lord from Ron Hughes. Browse our extended archive of past sermons. The word “gospel” means “good news” and it is the heart of the Bible! God made man and woman perfect and upright but they chose to go their own way; they fell into sin and rebellion against God.
We love to worship because we love Jesus. Actually, it started the other way around. “Do you understand how much He loves you?” That is a message that is preached over and over at Keowee Presbyterian. And we love because He first loved us.
We also believe that the gospel is intended to be lived out in a community of people who believe the same thing; that the best way to learn this gospel is in a community of people who wrestle together through the pains, trials, and questions of life; that the best way to make this gospel known is through a community of people who live out their beliefs together.
