About our church
We are a Christian church known as Central Park Baptist Church. We are a non-denominational independent church. We are networked with the Conservative Baptist Association (CBA) churches who have similar faith and practices.
Established in 1958 as a home Bible study group, our church became incorporated in 1963 while meeting in Aberdeen, WA. We soon became recognized by the State of Washington as Harbor Baptist Church and affiliated with the Conservative Baptist Association of America some time after 1966.
In 1964, the church purchased the parsonage at 6308 Central Park Drive and the adjoining lot where the church was built and is still located today. The first service was held in the new building in April, 1965. In order to meet the needs of the growing congregation, an addition to the church was added in 1966. Although membership in the church has seen increases and decreases, a third addition was added in 2000. This addition allowed for more classrooms and space for church-related events. The church by location and evangelistic opportunity voted to change its name from Harbor Baptist to Central Park Baptist in 1981.
Central Park Baptist is located in a suburban area between the town of Montesano and the City of Aberdeen, Washington in Grays Harbor County. We are approximately 35 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Our climate is considered mild, but with more than average yearly rainfall. Our area offers much in the way of outdoor recreation. We have two state parks nearby with both offering hiking trails, camping, and family-planned events. Fishing and swimming are also available. Our nearby ocean offers many opportunities for various outings.
Purpose: To know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to the world

We preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our salvation only comes from the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ. We practice the life instructions that are given to use in God's Word.
