Ministry Philosophy

At Second Baptist, we believe that God has called His people to serve Him with their lives.  We believe that a large part of that service can and should be done through the avenue of the local church.

To that end, we believe that the ministries which exist should serve to enable the membership to exercise their gifts and abilities in an area of ministry suited to those gifts and abilities.

We serve Christ by serving one another.

Second Baptist does not provide ministries for the sole purpose of attracting new members, but rather for the purpose of enabling the existing membership to grow in their walk with the Lord as they serve.

Of course, we would love to see God add to our numbers so that we might see even more lives impacted for Christ!  If you feel that Second Baptist could be the place for your family, please contact the Pastor at your earliest convenience!


Children's Ministry

At Second Baptist, we love our children!  Though our children's ministry is getting ready to undergo a restructuring, we remain committed to offering ministries which are safe, exciting, and edifying for the youngest in our congregation.

Our children's minsitry is designed to teach and train young believers, and reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our current ministries are:

Sunday School for all Ages

Junior Church (Morning Service only)

Vacation Bible School (See Calendar for more information)

At Second Baptist, adults are important as well!  We desire to provide ministry opportunities which will strengthen our adults spiritually, as well as provide opportunities for fellowship and service.
