The news of the world gets more and more dire, but the Christian message has been called “Good News” ever since Jesus burst out of the tomb that Resurrection Sunday. Sometimes, though, in the media and even at church, even that news sounds anything but good. Maybe, at best, more like, “I guess God doesn’t hate me as much as I should probably expect.”

Guess what? God really does love you. Here at Central Baptist we are united in our vision to contemplate the glory of who God really is–which, by the way, is Love–to motivate our mission to love the world and each other in His name, through compassion and Spirit-fueled good works of blessing to those around us. It’s a process. We’re not perfect yet. But we’re committed to traveling this path together, with Jesus as both our Guide and the Way itself.

Our church podcast, with sermons and occasional other notable services, is linked to this media corner of our website. Sit back and take a listen, for even more good news.

The best offense is…[fill in the blank] Who are we really fighting, and what is really the point of the armor of God? Thanks to Pastor Keith Myer for the bulk of the end of the main message.

Ephesians 4:1-13 Series: The Family You’re a Part Of What makes a good quality life? Humility, gentleness, patience, love, and peace. “If we move to the next section of this book and obey all the rules to the letter and ignore this part–where we allow our spirits to be formed in humility, gentleness, patience, love, and peace, we will not exhibit Jesus’ life, and we will not be living a life worthy of the calling we have received.

Ephesians 3

Series: The Family You’re a Part Of

What if the reconciliation between people through Jesus Christ is a greater miracle and mystery than the reconciliation between people and God through Jesus Christ?

This was the Sunday when everyone was either on vacation or was sick–or both. Rev Barb was already scheduled to preach, but we canceled the in-person service and she presented this from home. Thanks, Rev Barb!
