Join us at Central Baptist Church


You're not alone here in Norfolk! Dive into a community focused on loving God and loving people. Located in the heart of historic Ghent, our landmark Gothic style church building reflects the awe-inspiriting majesty of our eternal God. 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.

What to expect


Sundays at 11 AM

When you worship with us, you’ll find:

  • Scripturally sound “songs, hymns, and spiritual songs” (Colossians 3:16) that embrace both past and current styles
  • Challenging expository sermons that apply sequential passages of the Bible to 21st century life
  • A church family of all ages and walks of life who loves God, one another, and our community through service and outreach in the name of Jesus

For all ages


Grow in faith, relationship, and community. We believe that learning and asking questions about our faith is how we grow.
