“We covenant to reach the nations by sharing the gospel with those around us, reaching out to the poor and the needy, praying for the cause of missions in the world, giving to the financial support of missions, being personally involved in missions as God leads and as we are able.”
(From the Central Baptist Church Covenant)
In Acts 1:8 we find the words of Jesus to His disciples as he ascended to Heaven: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
We believe that if Central Baptist Church is to be faithful to this calling, we must not content ourselves with anything less than this whole-world effort! We want everybody in North Little Rock to know Jesus…and everybody in Arkansas…and everybody in the United States…and everybody in every country of the world!
In addition to our numerous outreach ministries, Central Baptist Church supports missions financially through budgeted missions giving, by giving 8% of all receipts to The Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention, and through our Great Commission Fund. GCF
Scholarships are available for mission trips for Central Baptist Church members. If you have never received a GCF scholarship, you can download an application.
