The purpose and mission of this congregation is to proclaim and give life
to the Gospel of Jesus, the Christ through our words and deeds in our
community, nation and world. We will strengthen one another for ministry
as we affirm the importance of Christian worship, education, fellowship,
mission, and ministering to human needs under the guidance and
empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
Community Baptist Church is a member of the American Baptist Convention.
Our present congregation ranges from the very young to the more mature,
and there is something for everyone at Community Baptist Church!
Community Baptist Church was founded in September, 1952, as an
offspring of the Central Baptist Church in Hartford. The first worship service
was held on September 14 of that year, with 108 adults and 51 youngsters
In September 2002 a 50th Anniversary Banquet was held in celebration, and
thirteen founding members of the church were present at the ceremony.
What a blessing!
We continue to seek God's guidance through our current time of transition as
we prepare for a new chapter in our history..
