Three words represent the overall vision of our church.

Spiritual Life

At 2nd Baptist Church we believe small groups are crucial to the life of any growing Christian. Jesus Christ was definitely a supporter of the idea of small groups. At the same time, Jesus was no stranger to large crowds. He fed over 5,000 men at one time, plus all the women and children. He also ministered to smaller crowds when He sent out 72 to minister (Luke 10:1-24).
Though Jesus had a ministry to the crowds, just as we have a ministry to hundreds on Sunday mornings in our worship services, He invested Himself in the small group. For example, He spent over 3 dedicated years pouring Himself into 12 disciples. Beyond that, He took extra time with 3 disciples in particular, His inner-circle, Peter, James, and John. Specifically, he gave special attention to the disciple “whom He loved,” John.
“Total Church Life” is all about growing with Jesus Christ on every level. It’s about growing with the crowd in worship on Sunday mornings, growing one on one with Christ in personal devotion seven days a week, and growing in the small group environment through Sunday School and discipleship groups. Our prayer is that you will catch a vision for what small groups can mean for your personal relationship with the Lord and for your part in the body of this church. You can make an important connection beginning this Sunday!
