Upcoming Events

Prior to 1860 slaves in Ypsilanti, Michigan worship with First Baptist Church. In 1860, eleven slaves organized themselves as the Second Baptist Church of Ypsilanti. This church has grown as the anchor in this community and from it has spun many other churches.  We have seen growth in the community and growth in the lives of the people of our congregation.  It is our desire to welcome one, welcome all, to Second Baptist.  See more on our About page.

The Lord Jesus Christ has done great work through the life and ministry of Second Baptist Church of Ypsilanti. Through the years many great ministiires and movements have been developed and implemented for the glory of God, the good of the body of Christ and the benefit of those who have sought Christ.

Theme Scripture for 2015: 1 John 3:16-18

​16 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. 17 But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? 18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
