Welcome to Second Baptist Church of Laurens!
Second Baptist Church is a warm and joyful fellowship of believers. We are a Christ-centered church and His presence can be easily sensed when we come together. I believe that Doris Akers' words describe Second Baptist Church, "There's a sweet, sweet spirit in this place and I know that it's the spirit of the Lord." (Sweet, Sweet Spirit, p. 243, Baptist Hymnal)
Second Baptist Church is theologically conservative in teaching and practice. We are a Southern Baptist Church actively participating with the Laurens Baptist Association, the South Carolina Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. We actively support the Cooperative Program, as well as local, national and world missions. We support the "Baptist Faith and Message."
Our fellowship is open to all people. Our worship is blended with traditional music, but includes some choruses, singing by indiviudals and groups, plus cantatas by adult and children's choirs.
We minister to people of all ages within and without the church. We sponsor a "Kids 4 Truth" program, Youth Ministry, block parties, VBS, mission trips and we have an active men's and women's ministry group.
We invite you and your family to be a part of a church where you can grow and be an active participant without getting lost in the crowd. Come join our family, you'll be loved and made to feel at home.
In Christ, J.D. Shiflet, Pastor
