Who we Are

Central Baptist Church is not about a building but a body. A body of baptized believers called to unite as a local congregation.  In fact, the first official church meeting was not held in a sophisticated structure but a strikingly simple tent occupied in 1909. With spiritual vision and a colossal faith, those pioneers joined to form the group of Christians who have come to be known as Central Baptist Church. From a simple past, our church maintains a singular purpose to glorify God in all areas of life.

    Giving is a part of our worship to God. It has been said that you can tell nearly everything about a person by the way they spend their money. Whether you are tithing in obedience to Malachi 3:10 or contributing over and above your tithe as an act of sacrificial generosity, your money will help us proclaim the gospel to our community and beyond. We give out of gratitude and love! You can give your gift safely and securely online - this is one of the easiest ways to give to our church. Thank you.
