Greetings from Central Christian Church of Jefferson IA! I am so glad that you have taken the time to explore who we are as Central Christian Church. It is my hope that as you read our posts, conversations, and look at pictures from our different activities – that God, through Jesus Christ, becomes present in your life in new and exciting ways.
Central Christian Church is a Disciples of Christ congregation that has at its center the mission of being “a movement of wholeness in a fragmented world” and “as one body of Christ we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.” This Disciples of Christ denominational theme of God’s grace for everyone is being shared every day at Central Christian through active, exciting, and Spirit-led worship, biblical based learning, and hands-on ministries.
My personal ministerial theme and vision for Central Christian is “Growing in Faith”. To explore and grow in one’s faith in God through Jesus Christ is one of the most difficult, but rewarding, activities that we do as Christians. At Central Christian we strive to continue to grow in faith as “one body of Christ”. It is my hope that all who enter the doors at Central Christian will find God through Spirit-led worship, learn about God’s grace through study of scripture with others, and participate in God’s kingdom here on earth through hands-on ministry. Thank you for allowing us the brief opportunity to share God’s vision of Central Christian Church with you. Until our paths cross may you continue to grow in Faith and feel God’s grace through Jesus Christ.
