• 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.

    I recently participated in a Pastor’s round table discussion on the broad topic of Christian Education. Rev.

    As a former runner (really!) this article caught my eye and has a p[lace in my heart. Of course it isn’t just about the running. It’s about going outside the accepted conventions (rules) when situations demand it. It is about putting our humanity – our “child of God”ness first in whatever situation calls for it…. Read more

  • Pastor’s Page – December 2016

    Our scriptures paint a picture of the birth of the savior that, if we allow, reminds us that contrary to the scenes of serenity our carols and cards often portray, Jesus came into the world during a time of incredible unrest in the life of Israel. As a country, they were occupied by a people… Read more

  • Pastor’s Page – November 2016

    We have been living through one of the most divisive election seasons in memory. This has not been a civil process in that we have seen name-calling, mud throwing, threatening on personal and societal levels, and of course, the lack of truth telling which boggles our minds. As your Pastor, it is my hope and… Read more
