Moving People Toward Christ

Central Beliefs

Central’s Mission Statement – to move people toward Christ by being a community of faith which loves, encourages, and equips them in Christ, sending them out to serve.

  • The Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God.
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity of Jesus, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • The regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful people.
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • In the resurrection of the dead; they that are saved to undeserved grace and they that refuse God to judgment.
  • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Authentic Community
  • Clear Biblical Christ-Centered Teaching
  • Outreach and Missions
  • Dependence on God through Prayer
  • Embracing Ethnic Diversity
  • Expansion of Neighborhood-Based Ministry

Central Presbyterian Church has a vision of life together that can be expressed in three words of invitation.


Gather encompasses everything that happens at Central on the weekend. It’s the catalyst that leads to spiritual growth for us regardless of where we are in our journey. If you’re new to faith, you’ll hear the message of Jesus in terms you can understand and relate to. If you’re a believer, you’ll grow spiritually. It’s a simple yet powerful focus, and it changes lives.


Connect embodies finding community and being intentional about your spiritual growth and is a great way to deepen your relationship with God and others. It’s the relational tie that fosters spiritual growth. Often relationships with people can be a catalyst to spiritual growth.


Serving is about discovering our gifts and offering them fully to God through serving; and it’s a key component to authentically following Jesus. What makes a church great is a whole lot of people like you being great in some area of service, both in and outside the walls of the church.


The invitation to the Lord’s Supper is extended to all who believe in Christ and have been baptized, remembering that Communion is not a right conferred upon the worthy, but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love.


Baptism is a proclamation that God has first chosen us and loved us and called us into His kingdom. It demonstrates publicly our repentance and desire to follow Christ. As a Presbyterian Church, we baptize infants of believing families, as well as children and adults who have come to faith.
