About us

Who we are:

We, at the Central church of Christ, are members of God’s family and a part of the kingdom of our Lord Jesus. Our purpose is to glorify God through our worship and praise to Him, and through our service to others.

What we believe:

Our source

Because we simply want to glorify God, we do not base our beliefs on our own feelings or experiences, on our traditions, on the teachings of holy men, or on the decisions of counsels. Instead, we base our beliefs solely on the one source that we are confident is from God alone—the Bible.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible, though written by men, is the production of God Himself, who wrote it to guide us in every area of our lives. We believe that, as the production of God Himself, the Bible is entirely true and trustworthy, and is all that we need in matters of living our lives and seeking to be godly. Based on this view, everything we believe and do, we seek to base on the straightforward teachings of the Bible alone. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:3, 20-21).

God

We believe that God is spirit (not physical), eternal, and perfect/absolute in all things (wisdom, sovereignty, holiness, justice, mercy, and love). We believe that God is one (in nature, purpose, and desire), yet we believe that God is three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Jn. 4:24; Deut. 32:3-4, 6:4; Gen. 1:26; Heb. 1:1-3; 1 Pet. 1:1-2)

 

Salvation

We believe that sin (failure to keep God’s law) deserves eternal punishment. Being perfect in justice, God does not overlook sin; however, God is also perfect in mercy. Thus, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for our sins by living a perfect life and willingly sacrificing Himself on our behalf. By this, God was able to show mercy to sinners, while remaining fair and just. (Rom. 6:23, 3:23-26)

While salvation is a gift, God requires actions from us if we are to accept His gift. He requires that we: believe in Him, repent of our sins, confess Jesus’ Lordship, be baptized, and dedicate our lives to Him. (Rom. 3:25; Acts 3:19; Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 2:38; Phil. 1:9-11)

The church

We believe that the church is made up of those who have been saved by the grace of God and their obedience to the truth. The church is not a building, nor is it identified by a specific name. The church refers to those who belong to God. Thus, we believe that there is only one church. There are many congregations where God’s people meet all over the world, but they are all a part of one body. (Acts 2:47; Eph. 1:22-23; 1 Tim. 3:15; Matt. 16:16-18).
