Our Story

How it all started...

Central’s beginnings were humble.  When the first organized meeting of Central Christian Church was held in October of 1853, the church consisted of 21 members.  There was no great strategy behind the church's beginning, just a desire to start a church that would flourish in unity “upon the Word of God alone as the rule of faith and practice.” 

Expanding the mission...

Fast forward to the 21st century. While remembering traditions and customs that played a vital role in our church, we are always seeking ways to remain relevant to our current culture. Preaching and teaching the absolute truth of God’s Word in a relevant and practical way shapes Central today. 

Where we are headed...

Our goal is for lives to be changed by the never-changing gospel message. The method of delivering that message can and probably will change pretty frequently, but the message itself will always be the same: God loves us and wants a relationship with us. We  love to see new faces walk through the doors every weekend, and our prayer is you feel accepted, blessed, encouraged and changed by the teaching and worship at Central.
