We are Celebrating this Year!

1918 - 2018

Second Baptist Church of Granite City has focused on two main objectives for 100 years--


Connecting to God through

the Gospel of Jesus Christ


Connecting to People with

the Gospel of Jesus Christ


We believe people were created for these relationships and faith in Jesus Christ as our savior is the key to making them the best they can be.  In keeping with this relational focus, we strive to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and live out His message in our lives.  Since our founding as West Granite Baptist Church in 1918, we have sought to spiritually nuture people of all ages, strengthen families of every size and race, minister to those suffering financial setbacks, and generally improve the community around us. Also, Second Baptist Church has sponsored and/or planted seven new churches, as well as sent out ministry leaders to lead other churches throughout the world.


So, how would we describe ourselves?


    Christ-focused, friendly, welcoming,

casually dressed, caring, encouraging, 

generous, fun-loving, racially diverse, 

multi-generational, prayer-driven,

open to new ministry ideas, mission-focused, 

using traditional & contemporary music,

and conservative in Biblical teaching.


Whether you want to connect with God for the first time or need to reconnect with Him, we invite to join us, and make some new friends along the way. Don't worry about how to dress or what to say.  Just relax and be yourself.


Hope to see you soon!
