"Building His KINGDOM!"

Founded in 1950, Central Baptist Association is a family of 19 Southern Baptist Churches and Missions located in Decatur, Bloomington, and most of the smaller towns located between them! You will find our Churches and Missions to be friendly, conservative, evangelical, and Baptist.

If you are seeking information about a church home in Central Illinois, please feel free to contact any of the churches directly. They will be glad to welcome you! You can also contact our office directly.

Visit our "What We Believe" page for a brief summary of the Baptist Faith and Message. If you have never heard "The Good News" about becoming a Christian, click on the link to the left in the "Baptist Connections" section to learn more about how you can follow Christ. If you are in need of someone to talk to, please contact our office. 

Our Mission

"To foster relationships among churches in order to assist them in fulfilling the Great Commission."
