Our Purpose: Second Baptist Church exists to Worship God, Disciple Believers, and Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We Value Truth: We believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired revelation of God. Every word in the Bible is true and trustworthy. The Bible is our guide concerning anything in faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:10-17)
We Value Going: We believe God has called us to go and share the good news of Jesus Christ. At the heart of our church is the mission of God to reach our neighborhood and the nations with the Gospel. (Matthew 28:16-20)
We Value Relationships: We believe God values people, and we should value people. We believe we should prioritize loving God and loving people. The church is more than a building. The church is a people. (Matthew 22:34-40)
We Value Gathering: We believe that gathering for worship is central to living a life for the glory of God. Every week we gather to go. We believe the church should leave worship equipped and encouraged to share their faith with others. (Hebrews 10:19-25)
We Value Growth: We believe the church is a living organism. If something is alive, a natural sign of health is growth. We believe we should see growth both spiritually and numerically as a church. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
