L.I.F.E. In Service
At Second, we understand that a church loses its identity as Christ-followers if it refuses to share Jesus with those far from God. Jesus died for the lost, broken, and misdirected. As a result, Second seeks to fulfill the Great Commission by providing opportunities to draw the unreached closer to Him. This includes neighbors, strangers, and family members, but also people groups not on American soil. Adopting a "Life in Service" is how we are coming together to follow Christ in His Mission!
We have been loving Arkadelphia since 1905! Whether it is through church events or in conjunction with a local partner, our mission is to serve the community of Arkadelphia.
Local Partners: Perritt Primary School, Lighthouse Mission, Red River Baptist Association, The Pregnancy Resource Center for SW Arkansas, HSU Baptist Collegiate Ministry, and OBU Campus Ministries.
If you'd like more information on how you could serve with one of our local partners, contact the church office.
It's important that we look outside our immediate community to also serve nearby towns and states to share the love of Jesus. As a result, we have an Intermediate focus to our mission that includes financial support, special trips, and prayers for these partners.
Intermediate Partners: New Covenant Fellowship in Fordyce, AR, Disaster Relief of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, and the North American Mission Board.
If you'd like more information on how you could serve with one of our Intermediate partners, contact the church office.
Our eyes must always be on God's heart for the nations to know Him and love Him. As a church, we provide opportunities to GIVE to missions and GO on mission trips.
Foreign Partners: The International Mission Board, Honduras Short Term Medical Mission Trip, and the Cuba Short Term Mission Trip.
If you'd like more information on how you could serve with one of our Foreign partners, contact the church office.
Evangelism Training and Opportunities
As fellow believers in Christ, we all need to be equipped and encouraged to share the story of Jesus with others who are not following Him. In the near future, we will develop a new strategy for equipping our church in gospel-sharing and then go to people who need to begin their journey with Jesus. If you'd like to be included in this soul-winning mission, please contact the church office.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
