With our renovation now complete, we invite you to join us in our fresh, new sanctuary.

1987 - 2022

a place to belong

After its first major renovation in 1987, Central had an abundance of room to accommodate growth. A new sanctuary was built onto the existing one (which was renovated into offices). The church also added on many classrooms and a children's area to the campus. 

God has been faithful as CBC stewards the campus grounds; our prayer is for every soul who enters our doorways to experience the hospitality modeled by God.

beginning in 1902

breaking ground

Central Baptist began in 1901. After meeting in their first building (a 250-seat brick auditorium) built between 1902 - 1911, the church broke ground on the current piece of property in Carthage in 1948.

Later, CBC renovated the building and added on a new sanctuary and classrooms. This is what we worship in today! This new portion was dedicated in 1987.
