The Great Commission

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

The Vision

“Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more.” John Piper
“Every saved person this side of heaven owes the gospel to every lost person this side of hell.” David Platt
“Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.” William Carey
“The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.” Hudson Taylor
“His authority on earth allows us to dare to go to all the nations. His authority in heaven gives us our only hope of success. And His presence with us leaves us no other choice.” John Stott

Sunday School

Our Sunday School classes meet at 9:00 on Sunday Mornings. We have classes available for all age groups, including a nursery. We meet as small groups and study the Scriptures, share prayer requests, and cultivate fellowship and friendship with others in the Body of Christ. Please reach out to us if you would like to join one of our classes or see our Sunday Morning Greeters to find your class.

Women's Ministry

The women's Bible study currently takes place in Sunday School as well as with our Judea Partnership Churches monthly. With a heart for equipping women with God’s word, our women’s ministry offers bible studies, book discussions and other events throughout the year. We want to help women grow in godliness, in whatever stage of life they are in, so that they may reflect Christ to others. We encourage fellowship with each other through discipling, Titus 2 mentoring and just doing life together whether it be in our own kitchens or in serving with each other in the church’s kitchen.

Men's Ministry

Sharpening one another in God's word.
Proverbs 27:17
"As iron sharpens iron so a man sharpens the countenance oh his friend."

Men's Night
Men of all ages, will be gathering together to encourage one another with God’s Word. We will meet once each month on a Monday evening. 
5:30-6:30   Supper Served

Children's Ministry

It is our desire to see our children at Second Baptist grow in the knowledge of God’s word. Our Bible lessons are intentionally Gospel-Centered. The children learn about Jesus, who He is and what He did for them on the cross, and how they can follow Him each day. We would love for your child to be a part!

Kidz Club
Kids Klub, for ages K-6th grade, meets on Wednesday evening at 5:30 PM in our fellowship hall for a meal. With a lesson to follow at 6:00 pm and ending at 7:30 PM. The kids worship with singing, play games, have a Bible lesson and enjoy a snack.
Meanwhile  on Wednesday parents can join us for for a Prayer Meeting at 6:00 PM and Bible Study  at 6:45 PM.

Youth Ministry

The goal of our youth ministry is to cultivate a high view of God in all of life that leads to true worship, committed love, and sacrificial service. We proclaim the greatness of God, the redemption of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, that our youth might be conformed to the image of Christ through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
