About Us

Second Baptist is the home church of many descendants of the founding families. Like a magnet, new members continue to join and enrich the spirit-filled body of the church. The congregation is a dynamic mix of talents, skills and abilities.

Mission & Vision

The goal of our church is clear, we want to impact the community in a positive way while proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. We plan to accomplish this by promoting our mission and keeping our eyes focussed on our vision of evangelism for all.

Articles of Faith

Our church is based on the Word of God. Our beliefs are detailed within the following Articles of Faith. It is important for believers to know what they stand on. The foundation of all belief is trust in the Word of God.

Message from the Pastor

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15 Revival Trip to Africa (The Republic of Zambia) As many of you know earlier this year I was blessed to be a part of an American Baptist missionary team that safely traveled to and from the Republic of Zambia and the Republic of South Africa. Subsequent to my service in Africa, I was asked by the Baptist Conference of Zambia to return to Zambia and lead a revival. The revival is currently scheduled for the first week in January 2017. We plan to hold the revival in the “Copperbelt” province of Zambia. We are praying for powerful preaching, teaching and fellowship!
