Presiding Bishop Edward Smith
 and First Lady Edna Smith

I greet each of you in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus Christ of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. I certainly thank you for taking time to visit our national church web site.

The Progressive Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Inc. is an Apostolic organization whose roots can be traced back to the day of Pentecost.  In a time when so many churches are bowing to the pressures of society, the Progressive Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ is committed to preaching and teaching the Apostolic Doctrine without compromise. We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, reception of the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in other tongues, and living a holy and sanctified life, according to the teachings of the Word of God. We are striving to face today's challenges through the Word of God. Our ultimate goal is to prepare souls for the greatly anticipated return of our Lord Jesus Christ to rapture His church.

I invite you to look around our web site and see the great things that are going on in "Progressive." You should also feel free to visit any of the Progressive Churches located throughout the United States in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, New York, and California. You will find information about their locations listed on this web site. 

Should you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us at ProgressiveChurchhq@sc.rr.com or contact us by phone at (803) 254-6106 at the Headquarters Church in Columbia, SC. Again, thank you for visiting our website.  May the Lord bless and keep you, always!

Christ's Servant,

Bishop Edward Smith
Presiding Bishop
