Here are a few featured ministry opportunities for family and friends.

Throughout the year we offer several events for everyone to enjoy.  

Fall and winter events include…

Kids for Christ

All kids grade K to 6 are welcome to join us for Kids for Christ on Sundays from 10:30 to noon and Wednesdays from 6 to 7:30.  We have tons of fun, learn about the Bible and apply it to our lives.  We practice special life skills, play games, earn awards, and make friends.


Christian Education

On Sunday mornings we share Bible study time together at 11:15, right after the morning worship service and a brief coffee break.  We have two classes for adults: one is working through a book called “Fearless” and the other discusses “What We Believe.” At the same time, the teens have their own study group and the Kids for Christ program is running.  Nursery is available from 10am to 12pm. All classes will conclude at noon.

What We Believe

At Center Barnstead Christian Church our desire is not only to know what the Bible teaches but to live out what the Bible teaches.

John 17:17 "Sanctify them by Your truth; Your word is truth."

We believe:

  • The Bible is without error and is the inspired Word of God.
  • There is one true and eternal God.
  • God exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    Jesus Christ is God’s only eternal Son.
  • The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin.
  • Every human being is a sinner and needs to have their sins forgiven by Christ.
    Jesus Christ provides the only way to God.
  • Satan is our adversary intent on destroying lives.
  • The Church is the living body of Christ on earth.
  • Jesus Christ will return to earth as King of kings and Lord of lords.
