“We are a church centered on Jesus – reading His Word & loving His people.”
After God put the call to ministry in New England on their hearts, the Barnes family sold their house and drove to New England in an RV from Oklahoma. In July 2018, Pastor Phil Barnes and his wife Kim settled in Connecticut with their three children, Ransom, Tait, and Kambry.
Phil has served in many ministry roles over his 29 years experience planting and revitalizing churches. Phil has a Bachelors of Science in Applied Ministry from Oklahoma Baptist University and a Masters of Divinity with an emphasis on Evangelism and Missions from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Our History

CenterPoint Community Church was planted in Wethersfield in 2010. Since then, CenterPoint has intentionally invested in its local community through being involved in town events, such as the Wethersfield Annual Corn Fest and Holidays on Main Street. 
CenterPoint is passionate about putting Jesus at the center of all we do. Our desire is to help you know, love, and live for Christ by doing life together in authentic ways.  It’s just that simple, when you know Jesus, life changes!
We believe in the Bible and its authority as inspired Scripture as true and trustworthy. We believe in God as the one and only living and triune God; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe Man was made in the image of God and that all people are loved by God. We believe Salvation is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We believe the Church is the hands and feet of Jesus, to serve its local community and share the grace of the Gospel to the ends of the earth. 
CenterPoint is a part of the Baptist Convention of New England (BCNE) & Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).
