In response to God’s grace and direction, Central Baptist Church is relocating. God graciously sent a buyer for the current property. We will celebrate our final service at this location on July 6th! We are seeking God’s guidance for temporary office and worship space during our transition period. We are prayerfully searching for land further north and appreciate your prayers. As soon as the decision is made for temporary office or worship location, we will post the information here on our church website and our church facebook page. Thank you again so very much for praying with us! We are so very excited about the future and the blessing God has in store for Central Baptist Church.
Welcome to Central Baptist Church in Okinawa, Japan. Central Baptist Church is Southern Baptist Affiliated and has been growing in grace to the glory of God since 1959. Morning worship and the preaching of the Gospel is in English but the congregation is an international mixture of Japanese, Americans, Filipinos, Chinese, Canadian, and a host of other peoples from around the world. It is truly a blessing to see and hear people of different cultures and tongues in loving fellowship with one another through the communion they have in Jesus Christ.
Central Baptist Church is devoted to the teaching and the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Man was created in the Image of God to glorify and serve Him. Man broke that relationship so God sent His Son to reconcile us to Himself. At Central Baptist Church we preach and fix our eyes upon Christ Jesus, the author and finisher of our salvation.
