The Path Forward
Centralia Bible Baptist Church is a family of individuals who have put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation. If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, it is the most important decision you can ever make, and we would be thrilled to talk to you about it and personally explain what the Bible says about how you can know for sure you are on your way to Heaven when this life is over. We'd love to talk to you about this! Please contact us today, or you can find out more about this important decision by clicking the link below.
1-VISIT A SERVICE
Your first visit to Centralia Bible Baptist Church will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. You will experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and at home!
2-BECOME A MEMBER
You can become a member of Centralia Bible Baptist Church through one of three ways:
BAPTISM AFTER SALVATION:
The Bible instructs every person who has accepted Christ as their personal Savior to be baptized. It is a public testimony of your faith. When a person is baptized at Centralia Bible Baptist, they are added to the membership of Centralia Bible Baptist Church.
STATEMENT OF FAITH OR LETTER OF TRANSFER:
If you have already accepted Christ and have been baptized in a Baptist church whose doctrine is in agreement with Centralia Bible Baptist Church, you may present your testimony of salvation and be voted into membership by your statement of faith or transfer of membership from another Baptist church. You may do this by stepping forward and speaking with the pastor during the invitation in any church service.
STATEMENT OF FAITH BY BAPTISM:
If you have accepted Christ and have not been baptized in a Baptist church of like faith, to become a member, you will be asked to publicly identify with Christ and the Centralia Bible Baptist Church by being baptized into our membership. Centralia Bible Baptist Church is committed to maintaining a doctrinal unity in this day of confusion and doctrinal compromise. If you believe that God has led you to this church, and if you understand that baptism is a testimony of your faith, a picture of Christ's death, burial and resurrection, and identification with a body of doctrine, we invite you to identify with Christ and the Centralia Bible Baptist Church by being baptized as the Lord leads you.
