Jerusalem Second Baptist Church has been a part of the Urbana Church community for over 160 years.  Although we embrace this tradition, we are yet striving to reach farther and sustain and broaden our horizons to meet the "right now" needs of those whose path we cross.  We have established new ministries over the past 3 years that will help carry us into the newness of what God has assigned for us to do.


Jerusalem Second Baptist Church (also known in the community as J2BC) strongly believes in ministering to the whole person by providing outlets that touch every aspect of life.  We’ve developed such ministries as The Kings Men, Basket of Smiles, Morning Joy (coffee pastry ministry)  Midweek Word Fellowship (intense expository midweek bible study), Mission and Education, (benevolent ministry), Women's Ministry,  Children’s Ministry.  And slated to launch this upcoming year 2015 is Girls to Greatness, Boys To Men, and a radio moments of meditation message entitle "Keep The Faith" where Sr. Pastor Michael Freeman will provide short but powerful messages of encouragement.  


We are building a winning team based on biblical principles and the call for the church to be both the salt and the light to all races, colors and ethnic cultures.
