Second Baptist is a vibrant, forward leaning Baptist church on the West side of Conway Arkansas.
What is the 2ND Family?
It doesn't take long around here to hear us use the phrase, "2ND Family" and it is much more than a neat way to refer to the church. The 2NDFam is our mission and our method. We want to invite everyone to be part of a church family that is serious about the person and message of Jesus Christ (while we don't really take ourselves that seriously).
Just like in any family there are people of all ages. Old and young, male and female. Those differences are simple and beautiful. They make us the dynamic group of people we are. As a family we leave our preferences at the door and join together in mutual respect and cooperation. That is why everyone is welcome in the 2NDFam.
Understandably not everyone had a great experience with their family. Growing up may have been tough. We live in a world full of broken people and those broken people are often in broken families. We like to say, it's not a repeat, it's a redo. In Christ, we have a new Father and he is a Good Father. Everyone is invited to make 2ND Baptist, their 2ND Family.
All of our services are identical as far as music and message are concerned. Each runs about an hour long and the preaching is always biblical and usually funny. The music contemporary with deep respect toward the traditional.

There are several Small Group options that meet each of the service hours as well. The idea would be that you and your family can attend a Worship Gathering together and Small Groups either before or after the service. Click here for more information about Small Groups.
Where do you meet?
2ND has a beautiful 50 acre campus adjacent to the University of Central Arkansas on Dave Ward. Once on the campus the largest and most dominant building contains the Worship Center as well as KidMin and some Small Group space. If this is your first time simply park in the marked spaces and enter through the closest glass doors. You will see a large tent that says "Start Here". A friendly volunteer will be happy to answer any questions you have and point you in the right direction.
Who leads the 2NDFam?
Our church is blessed with 2 fantastic pastors. Josh King is our Lead Pastor and has been since September of 2018. David Raney has been our Executive Pastor since March of 2019. With these pastors we have a tremendous group of staff. You can find out more about all of the staff by visiting our leadership page.
Our church is also served, in leadership capactities, by teams of qualified members who ensure that the church is faithful in stewardship, staffing and service opportunities.
