Texas Historical Marker

Deacons unveil the Texas Historical Marker at Central Baptist Church.

Nearly 101 years after the founding of Central Baptist Church, members gathered Sunday morning, Oct. 13, to celebrate the unveiling of a Texas Historical Marker recognizing the church's history and service to the city of Port Arthur.

"For a church to have its doors open for a hundred years requires a lot of faith and a lot of work," said Port Arthur mayor Bobbie Prince. "Evidently the founding fathers of this church and the current members have exhibited both."
