People Reaching People for Christ
A Brief History
Canton Baptist Church has been serving the community since 1855.
Reorganization took place in 1930, when we reopened the old Community Church building that was obtained from the Methodist and Presbyterians, who had abandoned the building and boarded up the doors and windows. In 1998 we voted to build a new facility. Our congregation had grown from 67 in 1994 to more than 200 in 1998, and we are still going strong today.
New Testament Church
We are a New Testament Church committed to worshiping and serving Jesus Christ. As a Southern Baptist Church, we join with like minded Christians in spreading the gospel to the world.
Our Core Values
Adopted June 8, 2016
Christ-Centered We value a whole-hearted devotion
to Jesus Christ.
Bible-Based We value the Bible as God's
authoritative, accurate and infallible
Word for salvation and Christian
living. The Bible is the source for
equipping believers, developing
disciples and producing leaders.
Worship We value worship that glorifies God
and is both personal and corporate,
in spirit and in truth. Worship
includes services, music, church
ordinances (Lord's Supper & Baptism)
Prayer We value prayer that is passionate
and spiritual. God desires believers
to pray. Prayer is both personal and
corporate. We believe that God
hears our prayers and answers
prayers. We believe in a reliance on
prayer for all our ministries and
activities in their conception,
planning, and execution.
Fellowship We value healthy relationships
among all our church family. We
emphasize small groups as a primary
means for believers to care for each
other, develop friendships, and share
Evangelism We value evangelism that seeks the
lost and presents the Gospel of
Jesus Christ to lost people in our
church area, in our state, in our
nation, and throughout the world. We
believe all our activities
should be viewed through the lens of
Equipping/ We value discipleship that is
Discipling transformational and turns believers
into followers of Christ who
guide followers to make disciples.
Ministry We value every member ministry that
demonstrates God's love and
righteousness in Word and deed.
