HISTORY…From the beginning!
FoP began with the help of the South Carolina Baptist Association and St. George Baptist Church of Orangeburg as a church plant in 2003 with 29 people in one of our current member homes.  Several weeks later, we began worshipping at Sweatman’s BBQ between Eutawville and Holly Hill on Sunday mornings and at a current member’s home on Wednesday Nights. We continued to grow at Sweatman’s BBQ for 9 months prior to renting a place (old Bingo Parler) in Santee at a strip mall. We worked hard to get it ready to move in and on October 12, 2003, we moved into our building. Dr. Rob White with the SCBC was our interim pastor for 6 months.
Pastor Scott Eadie became our interim pastor in April 2004. Our first baptism service was in August 2004 with Pastor Scott Eadie baptising at one of our members lakefront.
On January 30, 2006 we closed on 41 acres of land and a home just outside of Santee. Our pastor moved into the home and used as a parsonage.
FOP - ground breaking
 
We began our Time To Build Campaign with a large banquet at the Ramada Inn in Santee on Nov 12, 2006.
January 20, 2007 we held a ground breaking ceremony on the property.
September 23, 2007 we had our first service in our new facility with 208 people attending.
God continues to grow HIS church in Santee, SC.  He are honored that He has chosen us to further His ministry in this area and throughout the world!
In September 2014, we called a new Senior Pastor, Kent Wilson.
God has been so good and faithful.
