Welcome to Southeast Church Supply, Inc. / Churchproducts.com!
We specialize in high-quality clergy goods, church furniture, and furnishings, liturgical supplies, church metalware, communion ware, church candles, vestments and other church goods. Family owned, Southeast Church Supply / Churchproducts.com has been in operation since 1979 (on the web since 1998) and trusted by over 10,000 churches!
We got our start in 1979, selling religious candles to the Catholic, Episcopal & Lutheran churches of Georgia, from our Atlanta warehouse. As we grew, our church customers asked for different products, so we added church furniture, furnishings, church metalware, steeples, church baptistries, liturgical furnishings and more!
In 1998, we established the web site churchproducts.com, however sales still came primarily from our local customers. As the internet grew, we saw sales coming from areas that once would have been nearly impossible. Churches in New York, California, Texas, Florida and all areas in between began ordering their church supplies from our online store. We began to see orders from foreign countries: Canada, Mexico, Australia, Ireland, Great Britain, Italy, Austria, Switzterland, the Bahamas, etc. We truly became an international church supply store.
While we do maintain a warehouse for some items, for cost efficiencies, most of our church supplies ship directly from the many fine factories we represent. So even though you are ordering from a company in Alabama, your order might ship to you from New York, Chicago, Texas, Atlanta or any of hundreds of other locations.

Different Types of Churches
What's the difference between a basilica, a church and a cathedral?
1) Major Basilica-A Major Basilica has received this designation via Papal authority. It confers the status of a large or important church with special ceremonial rights. Basilicas are typically pilgrimage churches. There are 4 Major Basilica's, all located in Rome. St. John Lateran, St. Peter's (The Vatican), St. Paul Outside the Wall and St. Mary Major.
2) Cathedral- The Cathedral rank means this is the home church of the Bishop of the diocese.
3) Minor Basilica-A Minor Basilica has received this designation via Papal authority. It confers the status of a large or important church with special ceremonial rights. Basilicas are typically pilgrimage churches. Minor Basilicas may be located throughout the world.
