How Do I Join Second Baptist Church?

For well over a century, Second Baptist Church has practiced “open membership”, which means that we accept your baptism from other Christian traditions.

We welcome and do not require or expect re-baptism. For those making first-time decisions of faith, we baptize by immersion. If you are interested in becoming a member of Second Baptist Church, or finding out more information about our church, please speak with the pastor or moderator after the service. You can also e-mail our pastor, Steve Mechem, at
