The Central Baptist Church is a progressive and innovative church family with a theme of “Reclaiming Our Families Through Patience, Perseverance, and Prayer.”  We have a myriad of talents and gifts within our church body.  We believe in the holistic approach to ministry, and we have over forty ministries to help the total person.  Our church family is friendly and faithful…and truly the Favor of God is upon us.  We are excited about the vision that God has placed upon the ministry of this church.  God never gives a vision without making provisions!


The Central Baptist Church traditionally lifts a holiday love offering for our pastor. The love offering will be lifted on the 3rd Sunday, December 18th, during the 8:00 and 11:00 am worship services. Love offering envelopes are in the back of each pew.
