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.

Matthew 11:1-24

When our circumstances don’t change–for months or even years–and the thing we believed we were preparing the way for the Lord to do doesn’t seem to be happening at all, it is very tempting to ask God, “Was I wrong about You?”

Is it okay to ask that question?

Matthew 9:35-10:42

“In our Empire-bound world, everything Jesus has described is actually what it means to be like God–to be “at His level”–to have His authority…Jesus is so united to His Father, even though, when facing His own cross, He will ask for the cup to be taken from Him, He can’t really imagine wanting to do anything else but the will of the Father. It’s almost as if He can’t imagine us wanting to do anything else, either.”
