CENTRAL BAPTIST CHURCH IS A FAMILY OF FAITH THAT EXISTS TO GLORIFY GOD BY
MAKING, MATURING, AND MULTIPLYING
DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST
OUR CORE VALUES
I. JESUS IS OUR MESSAGE
We are a people whose lives are centered on the Gospel - the good news of how Jesus came, died, and rose again so that we might have life [John 3:16]. We are committed to sharing this message so that more people will know the hope and joy that comes from following Jesus.
II. PEOPLE ARE OUR HEART
We are a people who desire to love people the way Christ loves people [John 13:34]. It doesn’t matter who they are, where they come from, or what they have done - all are welcome because all people need Jesus.
III. LIFE TRANSFORMATION IS OUR GOAL
We are a people who long to see lives radically changed through the power of God’s Word (Hebrews 4:12). For this to happen, the gospel must be proclaimed clearly, consistently, and compellingly (1 Corinthians 9:16-23). Through Gospel-Centered teaching, we become obedient “from the heart” to all the Bible teaches as we live for His glory.
IV. MINISTRY EXCELLENCE IS OUR PASSION
We are a people who strive to do the best with all that we have [Colossians 3:23]. We are prepared, on time, engaged, and expectant. We aim to do all things to the best of our ability and with passion. Passion for Jesus. Passion for people. Passion for His church [Philippians 4:8].
V. GOSPEL-CENTERED RELATIONSHIPS ARE OUR PURSUIT
We are a people who believe that the Gospel has the unique ability to create authentic community. It tears down every wall that divides, whether that is age, color, sex, socio-economic status, or nationality, and unites us in Christ. Our goal is to love God and to love one another in Gospel-centered relationships [John 13:34-35] because following Jesus is not meant to be done in isolation [Hebrews 10:24-25] - but life is better together [Ecclesiastes 4:9-12].
