Second Baptist Church
Second Baptist Church

At Second Baptist Church Granite City, we're focused on two main objectives--Connecting to God and Connecting to People with the Gospel of Christ.  We believe we were created for these relationships and faith in Jesus Christ is the key to making them the very 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 of God's love in every area of our lives.  As a church, we accomplish this, in part, by actively serving our local community.  Since our founding as West Granite Baptist Church in 1918, our church family has been missional in purpose, sponsoring and planting several new churches, as well as sending out new ministry leaders over the years.


So, how would we describe ourselves?


    Casual, friendly, welcoming, non-judgmental, caring, encouraging, generous, fun-loving, racially diverse, multi-generational, prayer-driven, open to new ideas in ministry, mission-minded, both traditional and contemporary in worship and fundamental 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.   Don't worry about how to dress or what to say.  Just relax and be yourself as we worship God through music, prayer and messages from the timeless truth of His love letter to humanity--the Bible.


Hope to see you soon!
