First Central Baptist Church
Building a community to change the world

Thanks for discovering our website. We trust that you will discover the answers to the questions you are seeking.  First Central Baptist Church is a family of families who are passionately devoted to studying, learning, and living God’s Word. We recently considered the question, “What makes a great church?” We believe that “A Great Commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission makes a Great Church.”  Rather than just being a warm, caring fellowship, we want to have a positive impact on our community.

Please join us for one of our worship services. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.

Sermon Series

In the Gospel of Mark, we discover that Jesus is the Servant, Savior, and Son of God. We observe how he treated people with compassion and integrity. He taught the multitudes, ministered to those in need, and confronted the religious leaders. He lived according to his purpose, which he expressed in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” His example can guide us in using our service to share the message of hope with a needy world.

This is our Missions Weekend at First Central!  Our speaker at both morning worship services will be Woody Wooldridge with Outreach to Asian Natioinals.  During our Sunday School hour we'll hear from Sue Ann Jarvis and Janet Derderian, sharing their experiences from their recent trip to Ghana.
