Proclaiming God's Grace and Cultivating God's People!
All About Us
Proclaim God's Grace - Cultivate God's People
God wants us to become a Kingdom Focused Church
with the following Character Traits:
Outreach: We value reaching out by holding out the Good News. We believe that as part of an intentional lifestyle of bringing others to Christ, we are each called to develop authentic relationships with those in our context and to extend invitations, one by one, to experience God's grace.
Discipleship: We value the cultivation of people. We are committed to helping people grow and develop into mature, fully devoted followers of Jesus. We encourage believers to apply Scripture to daily life, to pray and to live out their God-given spiritual gifts.
Fellowship: We value the company of each other. God created us to have meaningful fellowship with Himself and with other believers. Our Ministry Teams and Committees are enriched by the understanding that spiritual transformation, responsibility, and ministry take place in the context of relationships.
Team Ministry: We value serving together. We believe that God has placed within each believer specific eagerness, gifts, and abilities. His plan for meeting people's needs involves the active sharing of every believer in a team endeavor that brings glory to God.
Authentic Worship: We value Worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth. We ascribe to God sovereignty and proclaim His supreme value, worth, and impact in our lives through personal and corporate worship.
Biblical Faithfulness: We value Biblical Preaching and Teaching. Scripture is our roadmap for life and the final authority in all matters. It is every believer's responsibility to diligently study the Bible and seek the Holy Spirit's guidance in daily life.
Prayer: We value a rich prayer life. We believe that prayer is critical in seeking God's desires for our church and our lives. We rely on personal and corporate prayer in the formation, planning, and implementation of all ministries and activities of our church.
Strong Families: We value the Family Unit. We believe that families and singles are significant in God's eyes and that the family is one of God's most dynamic means to live and model the Christian life. We strive to strengthen, restore, and protect families and singles through our ministries and activities.
Ministry Excellence: We value a spirit of excellence. We believe that God is worthy of our very best and calls us to do everything for His glory. Therefore, a growing spirit of excellence should permeate every activity and ministry.
Spiritual Transformation: We value transformed lives. We believe that our effectiveness as a church is centered around supernatural change in the lives of people who have a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and a growing awareness of His grace.
Cultural Relevance: We value being relevant in our Jerusalem. Just as Paul was willing to adapt his methods for reaching people without compromising the Gospel, we believe that contextual strategies should be used to reach our community. We will strive diligently to understand the lifestyles and needs of those in our community so that the Word of God can be shared in a language they understand.
We are a body of believers committed to worshiping and serving Jesus Christ. As a Southern Baptist Church, we join with like-minded Christians in spreading the gospel around the world. Our purpose statement is more than just a catchy phrase. We hope that it gives you insight into just who we are. Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds and at Centennial Baptist Church we desire to do the same. That's why you'll discover ministries here are geared to various life stages and needs. That's why we have a place for everyone to study the Scriptures, fellowship together, and minister to others through numerous service opportunities. We want you to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of our church. We'll bring you updates often on just what's happening at Centennial Baptist Church and share the stories of how Christ is making a difference in people's lives.
