New to Central?

Everyone is welcome at Central Baptist Church! We would love to have the opportunity to connect with you. Hopefully, the information below will be helpful. If there is anything that we can do to help you on your life and faith journey, please don’t hesitate to¬†let us know.

What to Expect

When you worship with us, we want you to feel comfortable and to be who you are. There is no dress code at Central. When you visit our church, you are our guest. Our members and regular worshipers participate in a financial offering during the worship services, but this is not expected of our guests. Our desire is to be a church that helps people know and experience God in a meaningful way.

What worship means to us.

Beginning in June, CBC New Berlin will not hold services at 600 W. Birch until the end of summer in August. Central is now discontinuing its Livestream of the New Berlin Service and will form a group to study the best way to provide this Live service in the future. Thursday night bible studies at 6:30 p.m. will continue in July and August and beyond. All who attended New Berlin church are invited to attend CBC in Springfield at the 10:45 a.m. Service.
