New Beginnings Agape Christian Center is a non-denominational Christian house of worship. We are spirit-filled Christians who believe in the power of God who moves in His people and within the earth.
 
We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Savior and Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and buried. He descended into hell, and on the third day, rose again from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God The Father Almighty, from whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
 
Our church serves the community with our Medical Center, community outreach programs for adults and children. Our worship services combine the old with the new for all generations through the anointed praise & worship, anointed Word of God, and the fellowship of believers within our church families.
Our Sunday Worship service starts at 10:00 am. All are welcome to worship with us.
 

OUR HISTORY

The Second Baptist Church was founded in the house of Deacon David Paterson In 1895. As the mission grew, a larger facility was needed, and a building was rented on Mechanic Street. By 1897 The Second Baptist Church was officially organized.

In 1904, the first church building was erected on Throckmorton Street and called its first pastor, Rev. D.H. Mitchell. In 1944, on the corner of Throckmorton and Haley Streets, property was purchased and the building was renovated into an church edifice. During 1989, Pastor Paul M. McGuire began the work on a new church. The new church edifice seats 550 people with an educational wing and banquet hall. Pastor Paul McGuire had a vision for a daycare facility, Christian Academy, Senior Citizen facility, and a Homeless shelter.

OUR MISSION

PREACH, TEACH, PRAY and LIVE ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD. We advocate Holy Living through a personal relationship with our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, and we seek to implement strategic plans to promote positive change in the community.
 

WHAT’S NEXT?

We are a fellowship of Spirit-filled Christians connecting with others believers to serve the community locally, nationally, and internationally.
