We are Second, where He is First

About Us



We are a body of believers committed to worshiping and serving Jesus Christ. As a Southern Baptist church, we join with like-minded Christians in spreading the gospel around the world and in particular right here in our own community.

Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds, and at Second Baptist Church, we desire to do the same. That is why you will discover here ministries geared to various life stages and needs, from preschool through senior adults. That is why we have a place for everyone to study the Scriptures, fellowship together and minister to others through numerous service opportunities.
Our outreach ministry, "GO", meets weekly on Wednesday evenings at 5:30 to make visits, phone calls, write letters and pray for prospects and recent visitors. We sincerely desire to reach out to the entire community. Second Baptist is "a common man's church" where EVERYONE is welcome.
Exceptional Ministries is a special education Sunday School class and worship time for the mentally and physically challenged of our community. We sponsor The Baptist Hour each Monday at 12:30 pm on AM 610 WRUS. The Sunday morning worship service is broadcast every four months (April, August and December) on the same station.
Experiencing Discleship meets at 6 on Sunday evening. A variety of opportunities are available to help you further your knowledge of God's word and to fellowship with others. TeamKIDS is a children's group that meets Wednesday evenings at 6:30. Supper, music and Bible study are provided each week.
