Core Values

Central Christian Church is a church that is concerned with the spiritual growth of the members and feels that goal is best accomplished in an open and non-threatening environment. So, we have no creeds that one must recite to join, and we enjoy a diversity of beliefs that makes discussions rich and challenging. The only requirement for fellowship is that a person believes that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” We are of the Protestant tradition and we practice adult baptism by immersion. We celebrate the Lord’s work on the cross by taking communion each time we worship. Still — we have a unique identity as a congregation. Below are four statements that try to define our place in the Body of Christ.


    We believe that “in Christ” there are no divisions, so women and men share in leadership.


    We believe in each person’s responsibility to interpret God’s Word, so we study the Bible.



    We believe that the Lord’s Supper is to unite us, so all who believe in Jesus as the Christ are welcome.



    We believe in the church universal, so we receive members from other congregations without requiring rebaptism.
