Central’s 8-Point Statement of Faith
We Believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
We Believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We Believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death on the cross, bodily resurrection, bodily ascension into heaven, and His personal return once again in power and glory.
We Believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. That salvation cannot be gained by human effort, but only through God's grace in the redemption He provided in Jesus Christ, a redemption which is responded to by faith and which leads to a life devoted to obeying God.
We Believe that repentant believers in Christ should be baptized in water, by immersion (the Biblical form of baptism), in obedience to Christ.
We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We Believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We Believe that, because all believers are spiritually united in the Lord Jesus Christ, we should cooperate in all possible ways in God's work with our fellow believers, both those among us and elsewhere, loving and being patient with one another in our differences.
