Who We Are
We are the Second Baptist Church of Kansas City, Missouri the oldest African American congregation in the city along with sister church Allen Chapel AME. We have been at our current location since February 1963. Our families link to the historical settlement of Kansas City and the state of Missouri. See more about our rich history on the link below.

What We Believe
We believe in the Holy Trinity, God the Father, God the Holy Spirt and our Lord Jesus Christ the Son. We hold to the belief that the Bible is the Word of God and its clear, literal teachings are the final authority for faith and practice. That the local congregation of believers are free to act and govern themselves. 

Meet Our Pastor
The appointed Angel of this mission, Second Baptist Church is Rev. Joe L. Callahan, Jr. He was called to SBC in February of 2020 just a few weeks prior to the nation’s pandemic crisis with COVID-19. He has over 20-years of Pastoring Experience and has a joy of serving in the house of God. One of his favorite scripture is Mathew 6:33.  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Meet Our Pastor.
