OUR VISION


THE VISION FOR SECOND BAPTIST IS TO BE A CHURCH LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.  WE USE PROVERBS 29:18 AS THE BASIS FOR OUR OUTREACH EFFORTS. "WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH."  THE VISION IS ALSO BASED ON SEVEN PILLARS WHICH ARE AS FOLLOWS:  

1.  MANAGEMENT -  LEADING AND EMPOWERING SECOND BAPTIST
CHURCH TO CARRY OUT THE VISION.  

2. SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES - PROVIDING SPIRITUAL VITALITY THAT EXECUTES THE VISION AND  STRENGTHENS MANAGEMENT. THE CHURCH MUST DEDICATE ITSELF TO CERTAIN MISSION-RELATED SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES IN ORDER TO GROW.   

3.  INTEGRATION - MAKING MISSIONS THE DYNAMIC THAT WILL MAKE A NATURAL OUTFLOW FROM SECOND BAPTIST WITH THE INTENT TO BE INCLUSIVE AND NOT EXCLUSIVE.  

4.  LEADERSHIP - EXPECTING THAT THE PASTOR AND JOINT MINISTRIES WILL LEAD THE CHURCH IN MINISTRY AND MISSIONS.  

5.  MODELING   - SHOWING OTHERS THROUGH SECOND BAPTIST'S EXAMPLE BY USING COMPASSION,  COMMITMENT, RESOLVE AND OTHER LIKE VALUES.  

6.  ARTICULATION - SPEAKING TO THE RELIGIOUS, SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY NEEDS OF OUR PEOPLE.   EVERY FORUM PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES TO ARTICULATE THE GOSPEL.  

7.  PARTICIPATION  - BANDING WITH OTHER BRANCHES OF THE KINGDOM IN WORKING TOGETHER, PRAYING  TOGETHER AND STUDYING TOGETHER TO ENHANCE OUR FAITH.
