Welcome! first time guest linking

If you are not a Christian, Central is a place where you can explore Christianity without pressure. If you are a Christian, it's a place where you can grow in grace and purpose. Wherever you are, wherever you have been . . . we welcome you.

You will find that Central is not the typical Baptist church. We

  • embrace a traditional style of worship.
  • are theologically moderate.
  • recognize that women, as well as men, may serve in leadership and pastoral positions.
  • exhibit loving respect for the diverse opinions of individual members.
  • embrace the belief that the individual is free to interpret the Bible for himself or herself, using the best study tools available to the individual.
  • are autonomous, though affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

dominican republic mission

This is a short trip to visit and video the construction progress of the school our church is heavily involved with building and acquaint members of our team with this mission and other opportunities for service in the bateys. This trip will focus on gathering information rather than construction work. The cost of the trip is expected to be $800-$900, depending on the size of the group and the cost of airfare. If you are interested, please contact Clay Hudson at (770) 714-2217 or fchudson@numail.org.
