About

We value family, community, and you!


A church on mission

We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life drawn together by Jesus and his message of restoration for the world.  Central Baptist has a rich history with more than 65 years in Oakville.  Highlights include a Portugues Ministry that has continued to grow for 32 years, a youth ministry heritage with strong connections to Kerr Street Mission and Camp Kwasind, and a deep commitment of serving our local community to help bring people spiritual, physical, and emotional restoration.  

In the summer of 2019, our church embarked on an exciting new direction with the hiring of Jonathan Webster as our Pastor of Teaching & Vision. An aggressive new vision followed to help guide us into the next chapter of growth and impact. Our vision is boldly proclaimed in the following vision statement:

In five years, we will become a diverse and dynamic church growing in faith, reaching our community, and leading others to Jesus

We celebrate our past while looking forward with anticipation to our future and what God has yet to accomplish through Central Baptist.

We invite you to join us for the next step of our journey!

Our Guiding Principles


Our Confession of Faith


  • We believe in the one, true God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Our Creator, Our Redeemer and Our Sustainer/Comforter)
  • We believe in Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord. As God’s only Son, born of Mary, Jesus lived and taught the word of God, died on a cross for the sins of humanity and was resurrected from the dead. As the only perfect image of God, the Word made flesh, He revealed the nature of God and the kind of life God intended for humanity.
  • We believe in the need of every human being for salvation through Jesus Christ and for the continuing work of the Holy Spirit in the life of every Christian believer.
  • We believe in the need of every human being for salvation through Jesus Christ and for the continuing work of the Holy Spirit in the life of every Christian believer.
  • We believe that God continues to work in history and that history will culminate in the return of Christ.
  • We believe that the Holy Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments of the Christian Bible, were written by human authors under the inspiration of God. Supremely, in Jesus Christ, they reveal the nature and work of God. They serve as a guide for daily life and the final authority in matters of faith.
  • We believe that the church is the body of Christ, the visible expression of His life in the world. The church is a community of believers in Christ who gathers for worship, encouragement, fellowship, accountability, and mission.
  • We believe that Christ left two ordinances to be observed by the church: The Baptism of Believers and the Lord’s Supper.
