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.
This year our focus will be on compassion in our deeds, our action of faith principles. Our ministry efforts, and all we do will be umbrella'd under our theme.
Theme Scripture for 2017: Matthew 25:34-36. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
