About Us


Our Motto is:

Second Baptist: "Where Love Touches People"

Our Purpose Is:

To tell the Good News that Christ has come, Christ has died, Christ has risen from the dead, and that Christ offers enternal life to everyone who will repent of sin and believe in Him.


Our Mission:

To reach every people and nation with the plan of salvation. We are attempting this through the outgoing evangelic ministry of our church to the local community, and through our support of the three great mission ministries of our Baptist Denomination.


These are:

1. Texas State Missions

2. North America Missions

3. International Missions

Our Beliefs:

A family of baptized believers who have trusted Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. We believe that the Bible is God's Holy Word without error. We believe that salvation is attained only by believing in Jesus Christ, who is God's Son, as Savior. We believe in the security of the believer, and we believe in the literal return of Christ to planet earth


Our Affiliations: 

We are a voluntary member of: the San Jacinto Baptist Association; the Baptist General Convention of Texas; and the Southern Baptist Convention.
