Building Bridges of Understanding...
     ...By Working Together for the Creation of an Inclusive Community in the Upstate of South Carolina


The purpose of Interfaith Forum is to build understanding, respect and cooperation among the various religious denominations and faith groups in our community, our region, our nation and our world.


Interfaith Dialogue & Understanding

Through educational programs, dialogue, and interfaith worship services, Interfaith Forum provides opportunities for learning more about Greenville's religious diversity.

Mutual Supportiveness

Through the sharing of ministry, service, and fellowship opportunities in each of our respective faith communities, Interfaith Forum works to encourage its members and to support one another.

Interfaith Forum does not proselytize nor do we wish to convert anyone to any faith tradition. Neither are we seeking to create a melting-pot religion that denies or glosses over our differences. If you are a Baptist or a Buddhist, a Pentecostal or a Presbyterian, a Jew or a Jesuit, a Muslim or a Mormon, we invite you to continue to practice YOUR faith in all of its particular-ness. Our purpose is to educate about religions and faith communities that may be new to you. Our purpose is to encourage not just tolerance, but understanding and respect. Our purpose is to create a vibrant religious community that engages in civil discourse throughout our city, the Upstate, our country, and our world.

Interfaith Forum is affiliated with the United Religions Initiative, the United Way of Greenville County's Faithbased Roundtable, the International Center of the Upstate, Greenville Forward's Committee for Inclusiveness, and South Carolina Interfaith.

Interfaith Forum invites you to bring the strengths and blessings of your faith tradition or denomination to our interfaith effort to build religious understanding and cooperation. We hope that your house of worship and its leadership will become members of Interfaith Forum.

Interfaith Forum encourages all individuals, businesses, and community organizations that embrace the Interfaith Forum mission and vision to join our efforts. Your support is essential in building bridges of understanding within our diverse community.

Interfaith Forum is a 501C3 organization.
