About Us

Our Culture

Our culture is defined by our people. We strive to create an atmosphere of an extended family inside our congregation. We want to be the kind of place where people want to stop by for a cup of coffee and stay to chat with friends, which is why our entry looks so much like a coffee shop! Stop by and visit us to see what makes Center Street Baptist a special place.

What We Believe

What makes Center Street Baptist Church distinctly Christian? Would Christ or his apostles recognize our Christianity as their own? How about the early church fathers, Augustine, Anselm, Luther or Calvin? Regardless of their era, each would view us through the lens of a faith that has been once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3). There are certainly beliefs and practices that make us distinctly Baptist – even distinctly Center Street; but there are four questions whose answers have marked orthodox Christianity for two thousand years and form the core of what makes our Center Street family distinctly Christian:

The four questions are:

  1. Who is our God?
  2. Who is our Christ?
  3. What happened in the Garden?
  4. What happened at the cross?
