Central Baptist Association

Stronger together!

We are proud supporters of:

Why Join Central?


Simply stated, we are better together!  

As Baptists, we celebrate our independence and church autonomy.  But when we read the New Testament, we learn that churches worked together to accomplish larger goals and missions.  Our assocation helps better equip us to serve our churches and communities. Our member churches have come to realize that ministry is too big to do alone.  We are blessed to be an organization that has a heart for worship, training and fellowship.  

For over 100 years, we have served as an advocate and resource for Christian information, education, counsel and support regarding matters of church doctrine, liturgy, development, advancement and polity for Black Baptist pastors, ministers, religious leaders and laypersons throughout the Central Pennsylvania area, and beyond.
