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)
                             and prayer.
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
                              their lives.
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.
