Pastored by Brad Boyd, 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.
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, military and non-military, and others from around the world.
Central Baptist Church provides a nursery and children’s classes for each service, but we also enjoy children taking part in the worship service with their parents. At the beginning of the offering time, children who wish to leave for their class are dismissed. You may escort your children to their class at this time, or they can follow the teacher with the other children. (Note: For our quarterly communion service, there will be no children’s church, so that all adult members can worship together at this time, and to help us teach our children about communion.)
Central Baptist Church has a heart for missionary work on the island of Okinawa, Japan. Our ministries tend to be flexible following the burdens of those who are currently members. From mission work that teaches young children in the Christian Schools, to English as a Second Language Programs (ESL Programs), to local outreaches and to ministry to the U.S. military stationed here, is a place to be ministered to as well as a place to serve in overseas ministries.
