The Central Methodist Church Vision
The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly. The local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs.
Central Methodist Church is a Bible-based, Christ centered fellowship of believers who will love others to Christ through prayer, outreach, and acts of compassion; learning each day to serve the Lord together in the Kingdom of God.
What We Believe
Central Methodist Church affirms that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all. There is but one living and true God, everlasting, infinite in power, wisdom, and good in unity of this God head there are three persons the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. The canonical books of the Old and New Testaments are the primary rule and authority for faith, morals and service against which all other authorities must be measured. We affirm the scriptural view of sexuality and gender; we welcome all to experience the redemptive grace of Christ Jesus. As we make disciples, we respect all persons, and we defend religious freedom for all persons. Jesus’ words in Matthew provide the Church with our mission: “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you” (28:19-20), and “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. . . . You must love your neighbor as you love yourself” (22:37, 39).
This mission is our grace-filled response to the Reign of God in the world announced by Jesus. God’s grace is active everywhere, at all times, carrying out this purpose as revealed in the Bible. It is expressed in God’s covenant with Abraham and Sarah, in the Exodus of Israel from Egypt, and in the ministry of the prophets. It is fully embodied in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is experienced in the ongoing creation of a new people by the Holy Spirit.
John Wesley, Phillip Otterbein, Jacob Albright, and our other spiritual forebears understood this mission in this way. Whenever Methodism has had a clear sense of mission, God has used our Church to save persons, heal relationships, transform social structures, and spread scriptural holiness, thereby changing the world. In order to be truly alive, we embrace Jesus’ mandate to love God and to love our neighbor and to make disciples of all peoples.
