About Us

About our Church

The Second Evening Star Missionary Baptist Church (SESMBC) was organized by Rev. Charles King on land donated by Mrs. Mary Texada. From 1868 to 2019, the SESMBC was led by many men of God. The Church accomplished many things within up to today's time. Through all the evolving, establishing, constructing and purchasing, the church has continued to move forward. We continue to make strides in reaching and fulfilling the five purposes of this church established by our Pastor, Phillip Taylor.
Ministry, Fellowship, Worship, Discipleship and Evangelisim. 
God has set before us great challenges and opportunities and we look forward to moving on to what God has placed before us. Together, SESMBC will fulfill our purpose for the kingdom and the glory of God.
