I was down at Canonicus a couple weeks ago, participating in their staff training. Part of their expectations was for me to lead Bible study. I was given the scripture text for said study about ten minutes before it was to begin. It was indeed providential that the text was one I was familiar with… Read more
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.
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.

Inherent in the season of spring is the opportunity for growth. We recognize this, as it is evidenced in grass, buds, leaves, flowers, etc, and so spring becomes for us a season of planning, planting, hope, and reward. It is the season of possibilities and anticipation. The first renewal of growth, those ever-so-welcome daff’s, crocuses,… Read more
Her name told me all I needed to know. I was immediately drawn into a judgment informed by my disdain for certain of the current trends, as well as my foundational principle for evaluation: nothing really good has happened musically since the mid 70’s. I didn’t need any type of experience to fortify my thoughts… Read more
In John 4:13ff, Jesus gives us these provocative words: “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.
