• 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.

    Some people call them “shotgun” prayers; those quick, off the hip, one liners that we shoot up toward the heavens, usually in times of panic, agitation, or fear. Offered in hope of immediate intercession by the Almighty, these prayers are often sincere knee jerk reactions to situations in which we ourselves feel powerless. They are… Read more

    The coming season which includes the Thanksgiving holiday, once again offers an opportunity to focus on our life in the Lord, and to express gratitude for all that the Lord has done and has continued to do.

He offers information concerning the Supreme Council of the Evangelical Churches in Syria and Lebanon, which has issued a “state of emergency” in hopes of… Read more
