Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of church is Central?
What can I expect on my first visit?
You will experience dynamic music featuring our talented choir and orchestra. The worship time incorporates a wide variety of music including congregation singing, solos, instrumental pieces and singers.
You will find an EXCITING, SAFE, and FUN learning environment for your children.
From our pastor, you will hear relevant, contemporary teaching based on Biblical truths with practical application about real-life issues that you can incorporate into your life on a weekly basis.
What should I wear?
Wear what you feel is comfortable and appropriate. Some people wear jeans and a t-shirt, while others come in “business casual” attire. We are more concerned about your heart and your needs than we are about your clothing. So dress casually and modestly, and you’ll fit right in.
Who can become of a member of Central Baptist Church?
Any person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and has undergone baptism by immersion is welcome to join Central. There are several ways to join regardless of who you are or from where you have come.
- If you are not yet a believer in Jesus Christ, you may join by FAITH. This means you recognize your sinfulness and repent from the sins you have committed, trusting and accepting in the forgiveness offered only by the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, following the example of Jesus, be baptized as your public profession of your faith.
- If you belong to another Baptist church, you may come by LETTER. This simply means transferring your membership from one Baptist church to another. We will contact your previous church and notify them of your desire to transfer membership.
- If records of your membership in a Baptist church are unavailable or if you were still considered a member of a Baptist church and are now coming from a different denomination, you may join by STATEMENT OF FAITH.
If you are coming from a church in another denomination and have already accepted Jesus Christ as Savior but have not been baptized by immersion, you may join by BAPTISM.
To join Central, please come forward at the end of the service to one of the ministers and express your wishes to become a member, ask for prayer or seek spiritual guidance. We welcome your desire to find faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.
