cbf 94px logo w ECEEF2 background2Looking for a church?

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.

purchasehymnalIn continuing the rich tradition of congregational singing at CBC, we offer you the opportunity to honor or celebrate the life of a loved one with a new hymnal for our sanctuary. During November and December, you may purchase one or more hymnals at $20 each, which includes an inscribed name plate. Please use the order form from this week's "The Challenge." Additional forms are available in the church office. Place order forms and your check in the offering plate, or mail to the church office.


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
