Reaching the Nations for Christ

Touching Lives Across America and Around the World


"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest parts of the earth." Acts 1:8

We have many members or former members of Second Baptist who have been called to the mission field. Please have your classes pray for them or "adopt a missionary" and pray for them once a month.
