How do I start following Jesus?
Jesus wants you to have an incredible life filled with purpose and power. He wants you to repent and believe the good news (Mark1:15). Of course, following Jesus isn’t easy. Jesus said that you have to pick up your cross in order to follow Him (Mark 8:34-38). That means Jesus is boss of your life. Right now you can “confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord,and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Romans 10:9-10). If you would like for someone from the church to contact you about your questions or your decision to follow Jesus, call us at 361-994-0266.

God uses 2BC to develop Disciples of Jesus Christ.
At Second Baptist, we are a congregation on a journey, a journey towards Christlikeness, a journey that leads us to the pool of living water, an oasis for our weary souls, where we linger and bask in the shade of the palm trees and drink deeply from the cool, refreshing water, where we draw near to Christ through intentional spiritual practices, where we share life in purposeful community, where we are transformed, and where we are compelled to go and join God in calling others to join us on this journey and at this pool.
Our neighborhood is changing rapidly around us. The countries and cultures represented in our backyard are myriad, and our church congregation and its ministries must reflect this.
As God pursues us relentlessly like a hound in pursuit, so we will not rest until every household in our neighborhood has heard this Good News- that they are being pursued and loved by the Creator of the universe and through faith in Christ are invited into a relationship with him.
