People Reaching People for Christ
As you walk through the doors you will be welcomed by friendly greeters who are more than
willing to answer your questions, help you find a seat, or guide you to the correct
classroom. You will discover that our fellowship has a family-like atmosphere, where people
will approach you to welcome you with open arms and make your acquaintance.
The pastor dresses formally. For those who attend worship services, some people choose
to dress up, and others attend church in their blue jeans. We love and welcome
people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, and appearances. There are no strangers here!
Canton Baptist Church is located on the shores of Lake Barkley. Our worship center has a
classic appearance on the outside, and inside the sanctuary has a comfortable,
contemporary feel, decorated with banners; and all the facilities are immaculate and clean.
The sanctuary seats approximately two hundred fifty people, and there is a large fellowship
hall and classrooms below. Behind the main worship center is another building where
our youth center is located, having couches, games, kitchenette, restrooms, teaching space
and instructional technology. The church offices are also located in this rear facility.
We consider our present worship style traditional, having a welcome, announcements, prayer,
hymn singing, offering, special music, proclamation of the Word, and an altar call.
Our music is unique in today’s fast-paced world, as we sing the old time gospel hymns. Our
musicians are very talented, and include two guitar players, a stand up bass player,
a harmonica player, and an organist and pianist. The music is lively, as everyone enjoys singing,
the people are singing in parts, and because we have some exceptional vocal talent.
