We are a Southern Baptist Church located in Centralia, IL. We exist to glorify God to the ends of the earth. We gather each week to sing the word, to read the word, to pray the word, and to preach the word.
We sing the word by singing a blend of contemporary songs and traditional hymns.
We read the word in our scripture readings throughout the service.
We pray the word in either a prayer of praise or confession, in a pastoral prayer, and other times during the service.
And we preach the word, where we open up the Bible and take the main point of a passage of scripture and unfold it and apply it to our hearts.
