Central Church desires to be a family place. A place of close relationships, where everyone who attends can love and be loved, know and be known. Central will be a safe haven where profound life-change takes place within each individual. A community known for building up strong marriages and families, where God’s love is taught and lived out, where husbands love their wives as Christ loved the church, where wives respect their husbands, and where the hearts of the parents are turned toward their children, and the hearts of the children toward their parents. Central Church is a place where the lost, the hurting, and the lonely can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, encouragement and purpose.
This is a place where you can belong before you believe.
We envision Central members being called to a life of personal holiness, living lives of obedience, living in submission to God’s will, and living with the sense of God’s presence. We dream of developing people into spiritual maturity through Bible studies, small groups, seminars and retreats. We dream of equipping every member for a meaningful ministry by helping them discover and utilize the spiritual gifts which God has given them. We dream of sharing the Good News of Jesus with thousands of residents in the western central part of Iowa. We dream of a prayerful church where we believe God can work
His power through our prayers and trust that He will. God will provide everything we need when we are faithful in prayer.
We dream of sending career missionaries around the world, and empowering every member for a personal life mission in the world including sending them on short-term missionary trips to every continent. We dream of welcoming 3,000 or more members into the fellowship of our family - loving, learning, laughing and living together in harmony.
We dream of beautiful, yet simple, facilities including a family worship center seating hundreds, a counseling and praying center, classrooms for Bible study and Christian school, a multi-purpose center for fellowship and recreational activities, athletic fields and an attractive courtyard. We state with confidence that this future vision will become a reality! Why? Because we believe that it is pleasing and praising to our God, as well as, inspired by Him! Everything is for His glory!
