Christ-Centered Missionary Baptist Church History
Christ-Centered Missionary Baptist Church was manifested on July 20, 2003. This came about when God used Reverend Anthony McNeal to challenge Reverend Edward Justice to start a church. A meeting of family and friends was called where 12 board members were selected, the name of the church was chosen, and Edward Justice was selected to be the Pastor of Christ-Centered Missionary Baptist Church.
With no place to worship, the search was on to find a location. CCMBC’s first place of worship was at the Villas of Eastwood Terrace at 4700 East Berry Street, Fort Worth, Texas, 76105. This was our home from 2003 to 2004.
In October 2004, without warning, we were asked to leave the Villas of Eastwood Terrace location. However when one door open God opens another one. Heavenly Vision Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Bernard Tate, opened its doors free of charge for CCMBC to hold worship service. CCMBC was able to save enough money to purchase property and a building for their own church, two months later.
December 2004 CCMBC purchase the property and church building at 2126 Amanda Avenue in Fort Worth Texas without the assistance of a financial institution. On Easter Sunday March 27, 2005 the first worship service was held at the new location.
In the summer of 2013 CCMBC sold their church and merged with new Harvest Missionary Baptist Church located at 5205 Carroll Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76105.
During the summer of 2016, CCMBC decided to take flight to its new home and current location of 5200 David Strickland, Fort Worth, Texas 76119.
Although Christ-Centered Missionary Baptist Church began with a faithful few men, their faith in Christ and their obedience to the vision God provided, CCMBC continues to serve as a positive force in the community.
