Central Baptist Church's affiliation with the Philadelphia New Sanctuary Movement is a renewal of CBC's prophetic engagement in the original Sanctuary Movement, declared in a congregational vote in 1984. This reaffirmation today of our historic commitment is grounded in our congregation's vision of “justice rooted in spirituality” and “making a difference in community.”-Congregational Meeting April 25th, 2010.

Civil Rights leader Congressman John Lewis at immigration rally in Georgia

Congressman John Lewis -- Civil Rights leader and chairman of SNCC -- at immigration justice rally in Georgia on March 24th -- "If any of you get arrested & go to jail, I'm prepared to get arrested & go to jail with you. If any of us are arrested, are put in jail, then we all should be put in jail. The jails of Georgia, the jails of America aren't large enough to hold all of us! So get out there! Make some noise! Work hard & we will get justice here in the state of GA & all around America. Speak up, speak out & organize!"
