Thank you for taking time to stop by our website. Let me introduce my family and church to you. My name is Michael Palmani and I have the privilege of being the pastor of Central Baptist Church.  My wife Bethany and I have been blessed with two daughters, Chloe and Claire, and we live locally here in Granite City.  


was voted in as pastor of Central Baptist Church in October 2016.   We anticipate great things for this Bible-believing, family-oriented Baptist Church.  We would love to have you visit any and all of our services.  To God be the glory, great things He hath done!

Because of Christ,
Michael Palmani, Pastor
