What to Expect


Welcome Home!

While you’re here, we want you to relax. You’re in a safe place. We have a passion for the arts, so music, drama and media are a big part of the way we communicate. Whether you’ve never been in church before or you’re a seasoned church veteran, you can anticipate an encouraging experience in a service designed to be relevant to your life.

Cathedral of Praise is a unique church. This may well be the biggest small church you’ll ever experience. From the beginning, our church has been established on a foundation of relationships. Since 1987, our church family has grown from a small group of 3 couples to what you see today.

Whatever your circumstances and no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done, you matter to God. And to us. We recognize that each person has something valuable to offer. We invest heavily in our children and youth, preparing them to lead and influence our community and world in the future.

Our vision is to be a dynamic church that glorifies God and reaches our community with His love through relevant services and small groups, places where people can connect, serve and grow. Lives are changed as we journey together.

Our Reason for Being

Our desire, as a dynamic church proclaiming the word of God, is to make disciples of Christ by exalting God, attracting and leading the unsaved to Jesus, encouraging Christians to consecrate themselves to God’s purpose in their lives, and equipping believers for effective ministry to reach the Charleston area and beyond.

What We Value

We acknowledge God’s presence in our lives and our dependence upon Him. We accept God’s challenges with faith and look for His direction in everyday life.

We encourage growth toward wholeness in spirit, soul and body. We recognize that this growth happens through relationships with people and with God. We believe that life is not only about “arriving at a destination” but “being on the journey.”

We value a sense of community and want you to feel at home. We appreciate how God uniquely designed you and are committed to helping you find your place. Together, we strive for excellence in everything we do.
