We welcome you to Second Presbyterian Church and pray that you will experience God’s love, mercy, and grace in this place and through this congregation.
We are an historic church, witnessing to Jesus Christ in this city for nearly 200 years. We also are a church seeking to speak to the needs of today’s world and wrestling with new and exciting ways to be God’s people.
We welcome and encourage questions about the Christian faith and life. We believe that the Bible is a living, authoritative document that shapes our lives. We interpret Scripture in context, using the intellect and skills God has given us. Worship is at the center of our life together, engaging both heart and mind, sending us out to witness to God’s love in the world. Because the Good News of Jesus Christ touches all aspects of human life, we make outreach to the wider community and the world a priority. We believe all we are and all we have is a gift from God and that we are responsible for the faithful use of those gifts for the sake of Jesus Christ.
If this approach to the Christian faith speaks to you, we invite you to explore Second Presbyterian Church further and invite you to share in its life and ministry.
Steve Jester, Pastor
