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

  • embraces a traditional style of worship.
  • is theologically moderate.
  • 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.
