Church Greetings

Dear friend.

Thank you for your interest in Central Baptist Church.

Our longing is for people everywhere to see and know something of the greatness of God, that He is worthy of exclusive worship and that God has mercifully provided the free gift of salvation for sinful people through the person and work of Jesus Christ.

To know the mind and will of God we give ourselves to understanding and teaching the Bible. Our intention is to apply the truth of God’s word in our everyday life in our relationship with God and with each other.

Please take a moment and see something of what God is doing at Central. Our sermons are available and can be downloaded or if you prefer you can listen to our morning and evening service live streamed.

May God richly bless you
Pastor Charles de Kiewit Senior Pastor
