our values

jesus at

the center

Everything we do is motivated by following Jesus and his example. He is the basis for everything we want to be, and why we want to do things.


John 14:6

rooted

We are rooted in prayer and God’s word. We desire to live lives of worship, and desire every day to point our worship to God.


Acts 2:42 1    Thessalonians 5:16-18

mission over me

Everyone pulls their energy and effort in the same direction. Disunity causes confusion and wastes energy, and ultimately limiting effectiveness. Our goal is for Centerville Community to be both unified as believers and aligned with God’s purpose for the Church to change the world.


Ephesians 4:3-6

we are a family

Everyone belongs in a family. Regardless of your season in life, we want to invite you to be a part of our family at Centerville Community Church. Life is not meant to be lived alone, rather it is to be celebrated and pursued in the context of community.


Romans 12:9    2 Corinthians 5:17    Philippians 2:3

Matthew 22:37-39

serving as a

lifestyle

We are so thankful for what Jesus has done for us, we can’t help but graciously give back. Everyone has a “God job” to do. We will do whatever it takes to empower the next generation and empower leaders, not delegate tasks.


1 Corinthians 12:27    Ephesians 4:11-12    Romans 12:1 1 Peter 4:10

CHRISTIAN & MISSIONARY ALLIANCE

We at Centerville Community are a part of a global Church movement called The Christian & Missionary Alliance. We place an enormous emphasis on the local Church accomplishing God's mission in our communities, as well as sending and supporting missionaries who bring the Good News of Jesus to the ends of the earth. You can find a doctrinal statement below with more information, but these four beliefs are at the core of who we are.

  • Christ our Savior

    Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. - Acts 4:12


    The Name of Jesus has permeated every culture for more than 2,000 years. In the Name of Jesus, people have experienced great miracles as well as horrific persecution. Jesus made clear His purpose on earth; only through Him is salvation available.


    Jesus’ death on a cross was the fulfillment of Old Testament law, which required blood atonement for sin. By His death and resurrection, we are redeemed from eternal separation from God, justified, made righteous, and accepted in His Name.

  • Christ our sanctifier

    His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. - 2 Peter 1:3


    Salvation for the believer happens in three tenses. First, in the past tense—we have been justified. Second, in the present tense, we are being sanctified, made over in the image of Jesus, as described in Romans 8:29. Finally, in the future tense, we will be glorified, according to 1 John 3:2, a process made possible by Christ, our Sanctifier.

  • Christ our healer

    And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. - James 5:15


    A great portion of Christ’s earthly ministry was dedicated to healing the sick. We find no record in the gospels of Jesus turning away anyone who came to him for healing, nor do we find that any disease was too difficult for him to heal. He even raised the dead. Miraculous healings continue today—evidence that Christ still is our Healer.

  • christ our coming king

    And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. - Matthew 24:14


    Clearly, the entire New Testament tells us of the Second Coming of Christ. The Alliance is committed to doing its part to complete Jesus’ Great Commission before His glorious return.
