Take some time to learn who we are at Central Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi. Central Baptist Church is a church with a great past and an even greater future. We invite you to come and be a part of all the exciting things that God is doing here.

Visit us this Sunday and discover why we call ourselves “A Caring Family of Faith.”

Bible Study

Each Sunday morning at 9:00 am classes are available for all age groups to study God`s word and to share in fellowship with each other.


We seek to provide an opportunity for every person to experience God`s presence in worship each Sunday at 10:00 am.  Mid-week service is Wednesday night at 6:00 pm.

Central Baptist Church does not look to worship as a means of boosting attendance or building excitement. Though our worship services are certainly exciting and they do reach many people who do not have a personal relationship with the living God. However, that is not our philosophy of worship.

At Central Baptist Church, God is worshiped for God’s own sake, and true worship results in the glory of God. We believe worship should build fellowship and unity within the family of faith as we come before a holy God seeking to fellowship with Him. When each member is truly seeking to praise and worship God then we all begin to worship Him as the body of Christ and the body is strengthened.

For Central Baptist Church, styles of music are not as important as the message contained within the music. Our church uses a “blend” of musical styles leaning toward the more traditional hymns and choruses.


Adult choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm. Central Baptist Church’s Sanctuary Choir presents special music each Sunday morning. There is a smaller quartet formed from the choir that leads in special music occasionally.

Youth Worship

Regular opportunities for youth occur on Sunday & Wednesday evenings for Bible study. Ongoing activities such as fellowships, retreats, camp, and mission projects involve our students as well.
