Our Story

How it all started...

Eternal Church began in 2003 as a fourth service of Westminster Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Rock Hill.  In 2004, Eternal moved into the Fort Mill area meeting in the Tega Cay YMCA.  A little over a year later in November 2005, the church moved into the Fort Mill-Baxter YMCA upon its opening.  Then, in 2009, Eternal left the PCA denomination and became a nondenominational church.  We are led by elected elders and function as an independent, reformed church.  In 2015, Pastor Don Logan is called to lead Eternal Church.

Expanding the vision...

Our selection of a YMCA was intentional from the beginning of our journey. Worshiping out of a shared space allows us to interact strategically with the great community to which we belong. We see in both the Old and New Testament that God’s people are known by a “tabernacle” existence within the community. We appreciate the built-in connection with the Fort Mill community through our co-location at the YMCA. We believe that organizing this way is a good stewardship of the financial resources received from the church. Though God will soon bless us with a permanent home, our vision of mission and community connection was firmly established in these formative years as a mobile church.

Where we are headed...

In early 2017, the church, led by the elders and Pastor Don, began a process of prayer and fasting, asking the Lord for direction in regards to building a permanent home.  In September 2017, a Step of Faith team was established as the church was discerning a call to continue a search for a permanent home.  In October 2018, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, Eternal has located a property in Fort Mill and has paid cash for a plot of 8.4 acres where a hope of a permanent home will one day stand.  Construction began in early 2022 and is expected to be completed by mid-2023.  To learn more about the Building campaign, click here.
