WHAT WE BELIEVE

CENTRAL Believes and Proclaims:

o We believe and proclaim there is only ONE Eternal, Almighty, and Perfect God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

o We believe and proclaim the BIBLE to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is the supreme standard by which ALL human creeds and conduct will be measured.

o We believe and proclaim the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning work through His shed blood, in His death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father in Heaven and in His personal return in power and glory in order to rapture the church and reign forever.

o We believe and proclaim salvation is solely and completely of grace; not of works or human efforts (you cannot work for salvation) and is essential to obtaining eternal life in Heaven.

o We believe and proclaim the security of the Believer and that true salvation cannot be lost once it is obtained by belief in the atoning, effective and sufficient work of Christ at Calvary. (Once saved always saved).

o We believe and proclaim that baptism is commanded to be conducted and that it is the outward (public) demonstration of one’s commitment and alignment with Christ. Holy Communion is also a command Christ extended to the church. It symbolically commemorates His atoning work of redemption.

o We believe and proclaim that there is spiritual unity (oneness) of all believers (the Body) which is centered on and provided for us by our Lord Jesus Christ.
