Where Jesus is Lord and friends are family
Founded in 1986, we are reaching out to Caroline County with the good news of Jesus Christ. We know that Jesus lived a perfect life, died a horrible death on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, then rose up from the grave three days later, never to die again. (For more details, click here to read the Baptist Faith and Message, 2000.)
We celebrate the life that Jesus gives through worship, teaching, ministry, fellowship, and telling others about Him. If you live in or near Caroline County and don't yet have a relationship with a local church, we hope you'll come see us soon. We hope this small web site helps you get to know us a little better.
On May 16, 2018, we ratified a new Constitution and Bylaws. That document can be found here.

Dear Cardinal Baptist Church family,
We are tracking COVID-19 and have seen the potential impact. Our concern is to protect all of the Cardinal Baptist Church community. While we are unable to meet together, continue your personal and family Bible study and pray for one another. New sermons will be available each week on this website.
At Cardinal Baptist, we are choosing to respond with trust in the Lord and preparation for what may come.
The Lord tells us to:
“cast all our cares upon Him, for He cares for you,” (1 Peter 5:7) and
“be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” (Phil. 4:6)
Scripture also encourages us to prepare:
“the prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.” (Prov. 22:3)
In order to protect the health of our congregation and the community, we are following the recommendations from President Trump’s response team and the CDC. We will determine when to resume services based on new information as it comes available.
As you respond individually and when we return to worship together, we encourage you to remember these:
Infection Prevention Practices
1. WASH YOUR HANDS. Often. With soap and water for 20 seconds or with alcohol-based hand cleanser. According the CDC, hand washing is the primary preventive measure a person can take. Wash your hands after touching high use objects like: door knobs, elevator buttons, money, phones, chair arms, etc. In addition, if possible, wipe down these surfaces before touching them.
2. Practice Respiratory Etiquette by covering your cough or sneeze with your hands or the inside of your elbow. If using a tissue, dispose of the tissue after each use.
3. Stay at home when you are sick and isolate yourself from others, especially those whose immune systems are fragile including the elderly and very young children.
4. Avoid shaking hands, and other contact, when possible.
What to do if you are sick
In the event of an emergency call 911. If it is not an emergency, and you are beginning to feel ill, call your healthcare professional. Some of the symptoms of COVID-19 mimic the flu, others do not. If there is any question, err on the side of caution and call your medical professional. They will work with the health department and/or the CDC to determine if your symptoms warrant testing for COVID-19.
Rest assured that whatever steps we may take will be for your protection and safety. Keep in mind your deacons are there to help minister to you.
Please continue to join us in prayer for those impacted by this virus, for those serving the sick, for God’s protection and provision, and that the spread of the gospel will increase during this time. Most importantly, we know that the Lord is our strength and protector, our strong shield. While we will not act in fear, we do want to be prepared and wise during this time. We take the health and safety of everyone very seriously.
We love you, and we thank you for being part of Cardinal Baptist Church.
