Welcome to the Three Rivers Baptist Association Site
Our association is actually a brand new work that God has been doing among two associations in Upstate South Carolina. In late 2012 and early 2013, the North Greenville Baptist Association located in Travelers Rest, SC and the Greer Baptist Association in Greer, SC began meeting to discuss the possibility of uniting to form one new association. This historic decision took place in May 2013. That decision led to the formation of this brand new association of churches under the name “Three Rivers Baptist Association”.
Why the Name?
That is a question that many have been asking and we believe it is a perfect name for this new work. In our region of South Carolina, there are three rivers that come together – Saluda, Enoree, Tyger. Those rivers come together just below our region. That image is a perfect description of our new united association. Just as these rivers merge together, so our associations have joined together. And while those are not large rivers, they join together for a much larger work. That’s exactly what we believe God is doing in our churches and association. We are joining just as those rivers do in order to accomplish greater things in the days ahead.
