Our vision at Secona Baptist Church is centered around the Great Commission – leading people to Christ, making disciples, teaching the Bible, and ministering to the needs of individuals.  “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.” – Matthew 28:19-20

Homebound Ministry


Prayer Ministry

“My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Mark 11:17 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 The Intercessory Prayer Ministry of Secona Baptist Church is the foundation upon which God builds a caring and growing church. The Prayer Ministry serves as a prayer support system for our church staff, our church family, and for people throughout our city, state, nation, and world.

Women growing together to know and love Jesus is the mission of the Secona Women’s Ministry.  The goals include building community, discipleship, encouragement, fellowship, mentoring, ministry, and prayer.  These are accomplished through weekly Bible studies, quarterly fellowship opportunities, and missions.  At this time, we have Bible studies on Monday mornings at 10 at the House.  Please see Kim Clevenger for more information.  We also support the Widow’s ministry Women of Faith – On the Journey Together.
Women of Faith – On the Journey Together
This is a ministry designed for women in our community who have lost their husband.  They meet each month to enjoy a time of food, fun, fellowship, and sharing.  So come – meet a new friend and know that we will walk beside you as we take this journey together.  God has a plan for you if you trust Him.
