Our Story

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20

How it all started

In 2004, a small home Bible study led by Pastor Duane Smith begins meeting in Georgetown. The study consisted of 8-10 people who gathered on Sunday evenings to study the gospel of John verse-by-verse. The Bible study grew and soon there were discussions of starting a church.

Where we are now

We are a local Bible Church in Harbeson Delaware committed to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word verse by verse, book by book (expositional).  We believe that God’s living and active Word is completely and wholly sufficient to change the hearts and lives of people. 

Where we are headed

SCBC is growing! A building project is a daunting task that will require long term investment of time, people, and funding.  By God's grace, we hope to have a facility that helps us accomplish our mission of making, maturing, and multiplying followers of Jesus here in Sussex County DE.
