We are located in historic downtown Charleston across from Marion Square at
328 Meeting Street, on the corner of Calhoun and Meeting Streets.
We are approximately one mile southeast from the end of Interstate 26, a couple of blocks east of the College of Charleston, and a few blocks north of the Market area.

For more than a century and a half, Citadel Square Baptist Church has stood as a light in the Holy City. We are dedicated to reaching people for and teaching them about Jesus Christ.
We are also passionate about encouraging and equipping believers to serve in
His growing Kingdom.

We cooperate with the
Charleston Baptist Association
, the South Carolina Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.

I am delighted that you are visiting Citadel Square Baptist Church on the internet! Citadel Square is made up of people just like you — people from all backgrounds, all walks of life. We’re excited to be able to offer something for everyone, creating an atmosphere where you can truly experience the reality of God’s presence.

It is my hope that you get to know us better through the various pages on our web site. It is also my desire that you not only gain information, but obtain a spiritual transformation through trusting Jesus Christ as Ruler of your life. Jesus is the reason we gather, go, and glorify Father God.

We have a historic past of God’s using this body of believers, but we live in a fantastic present and anticipate the future through our fellowship with the living Lord, Jesus Christ. After you finish checking us out on the web, I invite you to attend our services as we worship the living God.

For all the family at C2, we look forward to your being our special guest!
