By joining, you are professing your love for God and fellow believers. God made us to live in community - to encourage, rebuke, correct and serve one another in love. We are better together because that's how God designed us!
Scripture repeatedly commands Christians to submit to their leaders (Hebrews 13:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13). The pastor and elders are, in turn, to faithfully lead their flock. To obey this command, it is necessary for us to publicly commit to being members of the flock by joining a local church.
Did you know that you are uniquely gifted? Each member of the body of Christ has gifts that are meant to be fully utilized in service to God and His people (Romans 12:4-8). When all parts of the body are serving as they are called, the entire body benefits and God is glorified (1 Peter 4:10-11).Looking for a place to serve?

Before joining, potential members must have made a profession of faith in Jesus as Lord in their lives.
Baptism by water immersion should occur following a profession of faith.
All new members are expected to attend a New Member Workshop where they will be given an overview of the beliefs and ministries of our church, meet with the church staff to ask questions, and learn how to get involved at Central using their God-given gifts and passions.
At the end of each Sunday morning worship service is an invitation where prospective members can come forward. After the invitation, you will be introduced and then escorted to a short New Member Orientation. At the orientation, you will receive information concerning the steps to membership and a member orientation host will counsel you regarding your salvation experience. You will also fill out a short information card to be added to our church database.
Everything Central does is centered on three areas: The Gospel, Community, and Missions.
