Central Church started in 2004 with the single focus of “leading people into a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ”.
Our greatest desire is to present ourselves holy and acceptable to Him because of our love for Him. Our love for God is and should be the motivation behind everything we do as a Christian on a personal level and as a body of believers on a corporate level.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37
Everything Jesus did while on this Earth in human body was an expression of His love for others. In order to be called Christians or “Christ Like” we must follow His example to us in loving People. This is why we do what we do in every avenue of ministry.
The second greatest commandment is like unto the first in that we should love others… “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:39
Character & Integrity
We have determined that it does not matter what any other ministry does, we are going to be obedient with the call of God that we have heard for this ministry. In a time of compromise, we have determined that everything we do will bring glory to God. This is with all avenues of ministry here at Central and in our personal lives.
We believe that God deserves nothing but our very best. God gave us His very best and in return deserves nothing less than our very best. This does not mean that we have to be perfect, it simply means we gave it our best and in our weakness God will honor what has been done and He will always make the difference.
We believe that ministry should be fun! We want people to enjoy where they serve.
“God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
This means so much more than just our money. This means in every way we serve the Lord and others that we enjoy doing it. We want people to serve where their Passion is, not where we have an empty position or need.
