• 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 -Retired 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.

    ONE ANOTHERING…”Willing to be Known” In the 10th Chapter of John, Jesus said something profound: “I know my sheep and am known of mine.” I think these words summarize the entire ministry of Jesus. He made it a point to know his sheep personally, what they were, as well as what they could become. He… Read more

  • Pastor’s Page – September 2019

    In the church where I grew up there was a deacon named Fred, who was a key member of our First Baptist Church. Fred had a reputation for calling the shots. He was one who had to always get his way around church. So, people sarcastically said FBC stood for “Fred’s Baptist Church!” Right now,… Read more

  • Pastor’s Page – July/August 2019

    There are two ways a congregation can spend the interim period between settled pastors. The most common way is by reclining. The easy chair model; that charges a search committee to go fishing for another pastor and during the interim, spinning wheels, waiting til the new pastor arrives to set a course of action. That… Read more
