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.

This year our focus will be on development with a Discipleship 101 class, a development of our Music Ministry, & Hospitality Ministry. Our Youth Ministries will continue to develop young disciples. Our Media Ministry, Prayer Meeting, Bible Study, Discipleship Groups, Stewardship Ministry, SBC Art Institute, and Worship Services, will be further developed in 2016. 

Theme Scripture for 2016: 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.
