COMING UP IN OUR CHURCH LIFE
Love thy neighbor as thyself. This is not only a central tenant of Christianity, it may be the one that guides all else. To treat others with respect, kindness, and love is what we strive for, every day, in everything we do.
Salvation is a free gift of God. The death of Christ on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. All have sinned, but all can be saved. This salvation is available for any who put their trust in Christ as Savior and follow Him as the only Lord. Romans 3:23, 6:23; John 3:16
Our current pastor, Rev. Lawrence E. Clinkscales, was elected in May of 2016. Since then he and the leadership team of Second Baptist Church have diligently been working for the advancement of the church. We have now hosted two Women’s Conferences, our first Men’s Conference, have held 2 successful Spring Revivals, reestablished our Children’s Church ministry and have had 3 successful Vacation Bible School sessions. We are currently in the process of establishing a tutoring and literacy program, a homework education lab-library and partnering with Black Men United to establish a mentoring program. We were part of Cal State Fresno’s Church Sunday in February 2018, and various other community-based organizations to strive for the advancement in the community we serve.
