God of Grace. God of Mercy. Oh how we love the Lord today!

At Second Missionary Baptist Church, you’ll experience joyful worship and encouraging fellowship. We base our teaching upon the revealed word of God. We serve God, share the good news of the gospel and provide the spiritual environment necessary for growing in your personal relationship with Him. We are a family of real people, with real challenges, striving to live out our faith on a daily basis. Every member of our church family is encouraged to be involved in God's work according to his or her gifts and talents.
I would love to be your pastor and Second Baptist would absolutely love to be your church home. Join us for worship service, Sunday School and bible study. I look forward to meeting you as we walk this faith journey together.

In closing, remember the grass may wither, the flower may fade, but the word of God shall stand forever.

J.S. Barleston, Jr.
