“I chose CBC because of the Christcentered environment and the family-like atmosphere. Everyone genuinely cares for you at CBC.” - Alyssa F., McKinney, TX


Thank you for your interest in Central Baptist College. CBC is a wonderful, unique campus - large enough to offer a variety of education and extracurricular activities, yet small enough to provide one-on-one interaction and a strong sense of community. Since the institution’s inception in 1952, our mission has been “transforming lives through education that integrates Christian faith and academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment.” Everyone at CBC is united in our dedication to achieve this goal. Located in Conway, CBC students enjoy easy access to nearby Little Rock yet reside in the friendliness and security of a small town. Conway is home to multiple institutions of higher learning, a thriving business environment, scenic lakes and parks, and a vibrant community.

Central Baptist College is committed to transforming lives through education that integrates Christian faith and academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment.

This is an exciting time on campus and we would love for you to be a part of it! Schedule your campus visit today, so that we can share what experience and education mean here at CBC. Sincerely, President Terry Kimbrow

“I want to pursue a career in medical missions and share the love of Christ through medicine. The Lord opened up so many opportunities for me to attend CBC by blessing me with music scholarships. Another great blessing is my brother lives in Greenbrier, just about 20 minutes away. After CBC, I plan to attend a PA school for medicine and continue to be involved in medical mission trips. But until then I’m involved in Perspective, a college ministry. I spend time with my friends in downtown Conway, and join in basketball games, Stampede, broomball, Spring Fling, Mustang Madness, and M.U.D. Week. There is never a dull moment on campus!” Hannah B.

“I chose to attend CBC because it was a small school that could offer me a quality education. I could tell from my tour that the staff and faculty really cared about students and that greatly appealed to me. While at CBC, I am the managing editor of The Tower newspaper and a singer for chapel band. I love being a part of City Church and their college ministry: College City. If I’m not at school you can usually find me there. After CBC, I would like to work for a ministry organization and work with the media side of their ministry. I want to share Christ through journalism.” Mati S. Washburn, MO Journalism
