We of Center Street Baptist Church exist to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ. We do this by impacting our community with the love and Gospel of our Lord, bringing people to a saving faith in Him, and helping them grow in God’s Word.
Pastor Don has served at Center Street since 2017, and came to us with over 35 years of pastoral experience. He and his wife, Jeanie, have 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren. He loves to preach and teach the Word of God, and seeks to provide Biblical insight for 21st century living.
Linda was raised in a home where God's love was taught and modeled by loving Christian parents. At a young age, she trusted Christ and His shed blood for the forgiveness of her sins. She has served at Center Street Baptist since 1981, and views her position there as a way to serve the Lord while serving the Center Street Baptist Church family. She loves spending time with her elderly parents, her three adult children and their spouses, and her eight grandchildren.

GOD LOVES YOU AND OFFERS A WONDERFUL PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE
GOD’S LOVE: “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
GOD’S PLAN: [Christ said] “I came so they can have real and eternal life,
more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” (John 10:10)
MANKIND IS SINFUL AND GOD IS HOLY.
THEREFORE, YOU ARE SEPARATED FROM GOD AND CANNOT EXPERIENCE HIS LOVE AND PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
MAN IS SINFUL AND SEPARATED FROM GOD:
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
“The wages of sin is death” (spiritual separation from God] (Romans 6:23)
YOU CAN DO NOTHING ON YOUR OWN TO PLEASE GOD
“I mean that you have been saved by grace through believing. You did not
save yourselves; it was a gift from God. It was not the result of your own
efforts, so you cannot brag about it.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)
JESUS CHRIST IS GOD’S ONLY PROVISION FOR MAN’S SIN.
ONLY THROUGH HIM CAN YOU KNOW AND EXPERIENCE GOD’S LOVE AND FORGIVENESS
HE IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD: “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me’.” (John 14:6)
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and
to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
YOU MUST PERSONALLY ASK JESUS CHRIST TO BE YOUR SAVIOR AND LORD. THEN YOU CAN KNOW AND EXPERIENCE GOD’S SALVATION.
“But to all who received Him, He gave the right to become children of God.
YOU CAN RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST RIGHT NOW!
”If you openly admit by your own lips that Jesus is Lord, and if you believe that
Jesus is Lord, and if you believe in your own heart that God raised Him from the
dead, you will be saved,” (Romans 10:9-10)
SAY TO GOD :
“Dear God, I am sorry for my sins. Please forgive me. Thank you for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to die for me. I open the door of my life, and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life . I dedicate the rest of my life to You. Make me what you want me to be. AMEN.”
To KNOW God, GROW in Christ, SHOW God’s love and GO SERVE others.
