Our Mission Statement: “Centre Street Baptist Church exists to provide and promote opportunities to experience and share the love of God through worship, witness, study, and service.”
Explanation: our fourfold focus was intentionally designed to be easily remembered (two W words and two S words) but also to focus on the development of our people in community, and work to impact the community in which we are located. These four areas of practice are not comprehensive of what we do, but are the key elements of why we exist and how we accomplish our goals as a community.
WORSHIP: To be a community which recognizes God as worthy of our praise and provide opportunities for our entire church family to experience and glorify God.
WITNESS: To be a community which is a witness for Jesus Christ in word and deed, acknowledging and proclaiming Him as the Risen Lord.
STUDY: To be a community which values learning and encourages everyone to study and learn; to provide opportunities and resources for learning and growth; to encourage one another in our discipleship journey.
SERVICE: To be a community which cares for the people of our church family, our local community of St. Thomas and surrounding areas of Elgin County, and our world (Canada and beyond); to provide resources and opportunities for ministry, mission, and service in partnership with key organizations.
