We welcome you to Central, which is anything but the typical Baptist church. It

  • recognizes that women, as well as men, may serve in leadership positions and may be ordained.
  • exhibits loving respect for the diverse opinions of individual members.
  • embraces the belief that the individual is free to interpret the Bible for himself or herself, using the best study tools available to the individual.
  • is autonomous, though affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

A Study of the Gospel of Luke: Grace Under Pressure

Beginning Tuesday, September 9th
1:00 - 2:00
The Heritage Room

We meet each Tuesday from September - April
 $20 (for the study guide)

To register see below

If there is anything outstanding in the life of Christ as portrayed in the book of Luke, it is grace under pressure. Jesus was faced with every conceivable challenge in His thirty-three short years - including rejection, loneliness, loss, betrayal, exhaustion and always the pressing needs of the people around him. Yet, His faithfulness, love, patience, purpose, and integrity were never shaken.


The book of Luke is the most complete account of the life of Jesus Christ in existence today. It was written by Luke, a physician and a travel companion of Paul, and is the first of a two-volume series that included the book of Acts.


Our purpose in studying Luke is to get a simple over view of the events in this book, to understand the life and teachings of Christ, and most importantly, to discover principles that will help us on our  life journey. Maybe what you discover will be new to you, or maybe review, but my hope is that it will refresh your understanding of God's greatness, His great love for you, and His wise principles for living. Our lives are always facing challenges... there is much need for grace under pressure. Join me in this study, and as we journey together may you find wisdom as you see the unchanging principles and faithfulness of God through every challenge of life. See you September 9!


Grace and peace and much love,

Ever wonder if you have a problem when it comes to your use of alcohol? Has a friend or even your spouse told you that it has become a problem? This link has two sets of questions that look into a person's use of alcohol to determine if it's a problem. Take the time to answer the questions presented. If the answers you give indicate that you might have a problem, then consider doing something about it. You can call the church and talk to one of our ministers, or you can call the number in the phone book for Alcoholics Anonymous. It is an organization that has been around a long time with a really good track record for helping people with this problem. Please remember that alcoholism is a disease, like diabetes or coronary heart disease. If treated properly, you can expect to live a much healthier life. If ignored, then the problems will deepen and the impact on your family will only get worse. So, take the test, and if you need to, call me. --Joel
