OUR SPIRITUAL PATHWAY

at Central Bible Church

The Bible describes our life as a spiritual journey in which we “walk” in faith along a “path” that God has set for us. Jeremiah 6:16 announces, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, an walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.’” Our commitment is to help people faithfully walk the path God has set for them.

The first step in the spiritual life is to put your trust in Jesus Christ and receive salvation through his death and resurrection. When this occurs, we then BELONG to Christ. Though our salvation is personal, God calls us to experience it with others through rich relationships. This is what is means to BELONG to Community. Along the way, we encourage people to BELONG to our church through membership.

We BECOME more like Jesus through spiritual transformation. At Central Bible Church, we provide intentional discipleship to help people grow in knowledge, biblical vision, character and skills.

Those who are changed by God join him in his mission of bringing change to the world. This change occurs through the ministry of the gospel. We love helping people go BEYOND in their church, into their neighborhoods and their world with the message and ministry of Christ.
