ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Second Baptist Church of Redlands is the first and oldest African American Baptist Church in the City of Redlands, being founded in l892. The Church has made a substantial contribution to the City of Redlands and the Inland Empire, spiritually and culturally. As a city landmark, the church has it's historic roots dating back to former slaves that pioneered their way to freedom and providing a place for the African to worship in a native expression of their own. Historically, the church has a rich history of great Gospel music, great cooks, great preaching and community outreach.
Today, Second Baptist of Redlands is ecletic in it's membership reaching all people groups and backgrounds. We are a breath of fresh air where many Redlands University students attend and feel at home away from home. It has been a place that has networked with the Redlands City Police Department for the past 26 years under the leadership of Pastor Anthony Green, who serves as a Police Chaplain and mediation for many community conflicts. Second Baptist has a vision to build for the future and build strong families.
Second Baptist Church has been like an Oak Tree that stands tall and whose roots run deep with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, standing through many generations and where many generations have eaten of it's fruit of salvation and healing. It continues to be a strong voice in the community and the nation for reaching and restoring broken lives.
It's none traditional worship style, church drama, puppet ministry, Bible Study, teen outreach, Midnight basketballs, school of ministry and strong prayer base has been a beacon light in a dark and dying world for over 120 Years. To God Be the Glory for the great things He has done!
