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.

    The hype for the next year’s event begins as soon as one year’s is over, and continues throughout the year, fueled by drama seen each week on the Television, and in arenas throughout the world.

  • Pastor’s Page – March 2014

      The passing of American folk singer Pete Seeger has sent me into a time of reminiscence and reflection.

  • Pastor’s Page – January 2014

    All in all, I might say that this year’s “journey to Bethlehem” was exhausting, certainly not as we would picture it to be at the start. Life got in the way on several occasions: Illnesses, uncertainties, and losses of loved ones hampered our traveling excitement. Often traditional sights, sounds and thoughts were obscured by realities […]
