Central Baptist Church is a Bible-believing
Southern Baptist Church voluntarily associated with over 42,000 other
churches that make up the Southern Baptist Convention. Together, through
our voluntary support of the Cooperative Program, we are able to
participate in missions activities throughout the United States and
provide support for over 5,000 full-time international missionaries.
Working with other Southern Baptists, our church is actively involved in
serving our community, our state, and throughout the world
Southern Baptists, we believe that God created all people and desires
to live in relationship with them. Because every person is separated from God
because of sin and unable to relate to Him, God sent His Son, Jesus, to
die in order to pay the debt owed to God for the sins of the world.
People receive salvation and the ability to relate personally with God
through repenting of their sins and asking Jesus to be their
Savior. Jesus comes into the hearts of all regenerated believers through
the presence of the Holy Spirit who helps each believer to live as God
commands. Believers are commanded to share their faith with others as
they live their lives for the Lord. God welcomes every person who will
come to Him in faith and offers His free gift of salvation to anyone who
will believe in Jesus. At Central Baptist, we welcome anyone who will
come to faith through Jesus our Lord.
