South Shore Baptist Church is a local gathering of people from all walks of life. We have a simple vision: To glorify God and follow Jesus. We do this by putting our faith in him for our salvation, living according to the Bible's teachings as the Holy Spirit enables us, caring for one another as a church family, and bringing the Gospel to our friends, relatives, the South Shore and beyond. We desire to know Christ in a way that changes us to be more like him, and in turn changes the world through us. Come explore with us what it means to be a biblically faithful church in the modern world.


our history

About Us

Second Baptist Church of Hingham began in 1947 as a small Bible study in the basement of a home on Main Street in Hingham. The founders had a vision for a church built on the Bible’s teachings and a passion for spreading the gospel message around the world through missionaries.

The church eventually changed its name to South Shore Baptist Church (SSBC) to reflect its growing concern for reaching the region with the good news. As SSBC grew it relocated to a local meeting hall and in 1958 built the first sanctuary. In 2011 we opened a larger sanctuary and Children’s Wing.

God has blessed SSBC with a history of faithful Bible preaching, a loving church community, persistent prayer, and a concern for people to know Jesus both locally and globally.

South Shore Baptist Church is affiliated with the Conservative Baptist Association of America and the Southern Baptist Convention.
