About Us

Welcome to Central Baptist

Founded in 1885, we continue to gather together to worship our risen Savior, Jesus Christ, and to make Him known in our area and beyond. Located in Norfolk within the heart of historic Ghent, our landmark Gothic style church building reflects the awe-inspiriting majesty of our eternal God. We're easy to find, conveniently situated right in front of the Eastern Virginia Medical School and the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. Our welcoming church family looks forward to your presence with us! Let's seek the Lord together.
