~ Welcome to Our Website ~

Pastor Tom & Denise Smith

I want to welcome you to the website of Central Baptist Church in Pomona, California.

We are a family oriented church that's been around for over 50 years. We offer many ministries to serve you and help you be a part of something.

Let me be the first to say "Welcome" and invite you to stop in sometime and see us! We love to see individuals and families get plugged into the Word of God and His church! 

Hope to see you soon! -Pastor Tom Smith

We are an Independent, Fundamental, Bible-believing church that still believes in the power of Christ to change lives today.

October is Pastor Appreciation Month

We just want to thank Pastor Tom Smith and his wife, Denise Smith, for their many years serving the Lord here at Central Baptist Church! 

Because of you, many souls were saved, baptized, families were strengthened,

 and many children grew up in our church

 and some even graduated from American Christian Academy School. 

May God continue to bless your ministry for years to come! We love you!

Zoom information: 

Please call the church office to be added to the weekly group text/email notification with the zoom information.

If you want to watch the service live on "Zoom" you need to download the "Zoom" app from your play store or app store on your Android or Apple phone or PC/Mac computer. 

After downloading, open the "Zoom" app, and it will ask if you want to join as a guest or create a username/sign in. You will be able to watch the whole stream as a guest if you prefer, just put your name in the box once it asks you. Once that's done, you will be prompted to input the meeting ID number that was texted/emailed to you. Enter that info, and you should connect to the live broadcast. When you've joined, please mute your microphone so their isn't too much feedback. 

We look forward to worshipping the Lord together with you! 

In Christ, 

Pastor Tom Smith

Continue to pray for those affected and reach out to those in need in our church and communities. God is still in control, and He will guide us through this crisis.
