About Central Baptist

Since 1897, Central Baptist Church has embraced the distinctive beliefs that historically defined the Baptist faith. As articulated by Shurden, they are

Soul freedom: the soul is competent before God, and capable of making decisions in matters of faith without coercion or compulsion by any larger religious or civil body.

Church freedom: freedom of the local church from outside interference, whether government or civilian (subject only to the law where it does not interfere with the religious teachings and practices of the church).

Bible freedom: the individual is free to interpret the Bible for himself or herself, using the best tools of scholarship and biblical study available to the individual.

Religious freedom: the individual is free to choose whether to practice their religion, another religion, or no religion.
