Greater Carolina Baptist Church
Nestled among exclusively residential neighbors, this sanctuary appears to have been built in 1942, based on Columbia City Directories. In that year and for 1943, it was home to the Christian Science Church. Over the following two decades, Advent Christian Church operated from here under the leadership of several different pastors. During the 1970s through the mid 1980s, the Salvation Army had a presence within the community from this site. Since 1986, the African-American congregation of Greater Carolina Baptist Church has worshiped here, often opening its facility for meetings held by various neighborhood groups.
