History of Central Baptist Church
On April 17, 1954, a group of people met at the home of Mr. & Mrs. W.M. Rushing to discuss the formation of a Southern Baptist Church. The group united with Park Hill Baptist Church of Denver to become a mission of the church.
The first regular church service was held at the Rushing residence on April 25, 1945, with 42 people present. On November 17, 1957, the church voted to purchase the present property.
