      The Ohio Baptist General Convention

      The Ohio Baptist General Convention, Incorporated as we are known today began as the Ohio Baptist State Convention (Colored) in 1896. There were three Associations that formed earlier, namely, Providence in 1834; Eastern in 1872 and Western also, in 1872. Each Association formed as an Anti-Slavery Missionary Baptist Association after the Negro ministers were expelled from the Teays Valley Association. Visit the site and read more history on the OBGC.

      The Congress of Christian Education

      Founded in 1886, the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. (Convention) is the nation's oldest and largest African American religious convention with an estimated membership of 7.5 million. The National President, Reverend Dr. Julius R. Scruggs has led the organization since 2009. 

    • Our Mission Statement

      The Second Baptist Church is a word-centered church, designed to evangelize the lost at any cost, equip and empower the people of God, and provide holistic ministry to our community as well as the world.

      Seeking to minister to the total person, we are a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural ministry impacting the world in which we live with the uncompromising message of Jesus Christ.

      Committed to the spirit of excellence, we are striving to become an oasis of hope within the Elyria community, by promoting and providing education, awareness, as well as financial independence.

      We believe that God must be worshiped in spirit and in truth. We embrace freedom in worship because the Word says , \"Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.\"

      Our foundation is the Word of God and we believe it in its entirety. We believe we can do what it says we can do, be who it says we can be, and have what it says we can have.

    • Greetings and Welcome to the Second Baptist Church of Elyria, Ohio!!!

      And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)  more from our Pastor

    • Ministry of Evangelism

      Often time’s people come to church and accept Christ, or we witness to them and they make a confession of faith and we lose them. Somewhere between the confession and the snares of life they find no reason to stay connected to the church. I know the real reason is that they lack a foundation and understanding of God's love.  Click here to read more
