Excitement, vision, worship, evangelism, discipleship, missions, equipping – all describe the makeup of our church. The very heart of Central Baptist Church is her people and our focus is to seek the heart of God.
Like a healthy family, a healthy church is a friendly place of warmth, nurture and growth. We are committed to being a caring and nurturing fellowship – a place where guests are welcomed as friends and cared for like family.
Most of us want to become more than we already are. Our church offers a wide range of learning experiences for people of all ages for the purpose of growing in Christ. The foundation for these activities is God's Word. These timeless principles shared and lived out within a church family become active, alive and truly life-changing.
At Central, we emphasize the importance of being "plugged in" to ministry. If you only attend Sunday morning worship, you're really missing out on a blessing! Growth comes from studying God's Word in Bible Study, from in-depth Discipleship classes, from fellowship with the church body, and from serving and using the gifts that God has given you - not just sitting on the sidelines!
Located in the heart of Oak Ridge, Central Baptist Church has a rich, 40-year history of ministering to the Oak Ridge community and surrounding area. Central brings together families from near and far who delight in the love of Christ and love for one another. We’re a church with traditional roots incorporating contemporary ways of reaching out to our community.
