Here's a brief outline of the church history.

  • Name of church was changed to Second Baptist Church -1948
  • Property on Calhoun Street purchased under leadership of Rev. Leroy Davis
  •  Property purchased on Burr Street to build a church-1970
  • Burning of Mortgage -1987
  • Church moved to Second Chances - 2017
  • Church moved to current location on Grace Street

Embracing the Vision...

The Bible says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish."
Proverbs 29:18 KJV

Our vision is a picture of a better future for Second Baptist Church, informed by the principles of Scripture, and supplemented by direct communication from God. In other words, we can always know in general what God wants for the church because the Bible tells us God's will.  Motto:  MAKE MORE DISCIPLES
