Founded in 1790, the Central Baptist Church is a downtown congregation by history and by choice. We are a multicultural congregation whose diversity is reflected in our worship, leadership and theological perspectives. A treasured part of Central Baptist's heritage is its commitment to the well-being of Hartford, and we seek to honor that through our contemporary witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the integrity of lay ministry and to that end we seek to empower our members to express themselves as they feel called. Ours is a shared ministry.
We recognize the inherent worth and significance of every person, from our youngest to our oldest. Therefore we minister to the whole person and to every person, especially valuing Christian education for all ages through our Church School, Bible studies and Adult Forums.
