• Welcome To Our Church

    Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, the members of the Warwick Central Baptist Church extend a warm welcome and invite you to visit our church through this page. WCBC is a community of believers that is committed to Growing in Christ, Sharing Christ and Serving Christ together.

    We welcome people of all walks of life as we seek to build a healthy spiritual community with love and humility, reflecting the character of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We strive to blend the faith witness and wisdom of our older members with the excitement and enthusiasm of the younger people, so that our life together, and the ministries that emerge from our fellowship, are fresh, vital, and prophetic.

    For me, the most significant part of Local church ministry is the daily interaction with people of the church and the community. It is a tremendous privilege to be allowed into the lives of these people I work with and for. Recognizing that each day brings possibilities for special interaction with some part of the body of Christ, as well as opportunities to bear witness to God’s love to those outside the body is a special blessing.

    Rev. John Houlker -Church Pastor

    You will find Warwick Central to be relaxed in its style worship, and, while we wish to you make you feel most welcome, we do recognize that it can sometimes feel intimidating to enter a church you’re not familiar with. You are our respected and welcome guest, and we hope you will feel as comfortable in our house as you would in that of a valued friend. Please don’t hesitate to ask our greeters at the door if you have any questions, or need somebody to help you manage the Bible and Hymnal during the service.

    We hope, as well, that this information will give you a better understanding of the way we worship, and help you feel more at home when you join us.

    As we ease into another year of growth, caring and serving, I offer these Christmas Eve thoughts to accompany us on the journey: Many of us grew up in the pageant generation.

           Back in the sixties, folk duo Simon and Garfunkel included on a record album a song in which the carol “Silent Night” was overlaid with excerpts of an evening news broadcast. As the song was sung, we were forced into an encounter with the world, which was in turmoil on many levels. The… Read more

    It is gratifying that our mission statement “To Grow in Christ, To Share his Love, To Serve his World”, has a place of prominence in our church life. It has become the foundational piece for much of our visions and planning. It was designed to be as such. Many of our church members actually know… Read more

    I cannot remember any Papal visit to the US that has been met with more anticipation. Previous visits captured our imaginations because there was, in a sense, a sense of disconnect with that robed kingdom which is the Vatican. We would get some TV footage, and news blurbs, see photos on the news and in… Read more

    It is often quite a burden, being created in the image of God…isn’t it? Such a privilege comes with truths and expectations (biblical and otherwise) that constantly pull us from our comfort zones into places where reality rules, and recognition of this reality requires decisions and attitudes that often run contrary to our desire create… Read more
