WE BELIEVE IN THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD, THE BIBLE.
People who attend Second Baptist Church come from all different experiences and backgrounds. Some come from Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist and other churches. Others come with no church or religious background at all. Suddenly, they find themselves here. What does that mean? Many have identified the Baptist church by its common stereotypes, but we can assure you that the Second Baptist Church family is not your stereotypical religious institution.
With five campuses in the Houston area, the Second Baptist Church is unique, believing that church should be fun and exciting without compromising the truth of God’s Word, the Bible. The Second Baptist Church is a Christian, Evangelical church with the primary purpose to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
