Church Reaches New Heights

   Construction on a Jacksonville church is reaching a pinnacle. Actually, it was raising the pinnacle.

   Central Baptist Church lifted their new steeple up to it's perch Monday afternoon. The church's Pastor, Bruce Webb, says Central Baptist has outgrown the old downtown location. The new facility will allow room for the church to grow.

   "We believe that a relationship with the Lord is the most important thing and we want people to have that opportunity. We're really not building for oursleves, but we're building for our community."

  Pastor Webb says the church's expansion has been in the plans for nearly 25 years.
