• Current Sermon Series: 1 Peter, "Progressing Pilgrims"


Second Baptist Church exists to glorify the Father, obediently exalting the Lord Jesus Christ, by making and maturing disciples in the West Frankfort area and around the world, bringing them into the fellowship of the church, nurturing them with biblical love, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

On behalf of our church family, we want to invite you to visit our church. We believe serving Christ in the local church is a joy and privilege, and we want to share that joy with you. We're excited about the Lord Jesus, and are proclaiming the message of His saving grace.

Our ministries are focused on the glory of God, and we believe that living for His glory is the highest purpose any person can have.

Let us help you discover that purpose in your life. Please come worship Almighty God with us!

In Christ,
Brother Brett Beasley
