Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”  We will answer the questions: What does it mean to confess Jesus?  Why do we do it?  How do we do it?

This church does not exist to pay the bills, hold worship services, or make church members happy.  The purpose of this church is to reach the lost.  We are aggressively, unashamedly, trying to motivate people to make Jesus their Savior and life-leader.  Reaching the lost is the reason Central Christian Church exists.
