We exist to guide people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
JESUS IS OUR JOY
Jesus is at the center of everything we do. Its about placing Jesus at the center of every area of your life and letting His presence take hold. We believe He’s irresistible and when you see Him for who He really is, you naturally want to follow Him, because He’s worth it!
PEOPLE ARE OUR PRIORITY
We are aggressive in our approach to reach people and intentionally focus our time and resources towards the needs and interests of people outside the church. At CenterSet we’re all about people. We’re all about people because God is all about people. We do whatever it takes to reach people far from God. We won’t ignore the outsider for the sake of the insider’s comfort. One of the ways we express our love for Him is through our love for people, and we do that by helping each person who comes to CenterSet grow in their relationship with the Lord.
FAITH IS OUR FOCUS
We prepare in advance for growth that only God can bring by creating environments where God isn’t merely studied but experienced. When faith is the focus you trust God by the power of the Holy Spirit to transform people, families, and communities. We will have a continual willingness to look foolish to make God famous. We see obstacles as opportunities for our God to do great things. We don’t insult God with small dreams and safe living.
EXCELLENCE IS OUR ESSENCE
Giving God our best through excellence honors Him and inspires people. Excellence is not a destination but a journey. Excellence is not who you are but what you do. It’s a lifestyle. Excellence is not what you have in your hands but what you do with it! Excellence isn’t a destination but an attitude, it’s believing that to give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift; it’s an act of worship!
This is our “UP” strategy, where we will create environments where God is experienced and people are called to love and follow Him wholeheartedly.
Love Each Other
This is our “IN” strategy, where we will provide opportunities for people to Love God, their neighbor, and one another.
Love the World
This is our “OUT” strategy. where we will prioritize an aggressive outreach strategy to love our community and change the world.
We believe the Bible to be completely true and authoritative in all areas of faith and practice. It is God-inspired and a source of strength, direction, and wisdom for those who apply it to their lives. (John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe Jesus Christ is the perfect revelation of God to humankind. He is fully God and fully man. After voluntarily coming to earth and living a sinless life, He died on the cross as the substitute for humanity’s sin. His resurrection from the grave affirms His victory over sin and death. (Matthew 1:18-2:12; John 1:1-18; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Corinthians 12; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15-23; Hebrews 1:1-13; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:1-2:2)
We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Lord and Savior will receive the forgiveness of sins and the free gift of eternal life. True peace and fulfillment in life is only found in a relationship with Jesus. (John 3:16, 6:35-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:28-39; Philippians 1:6; 2 Timothy 2:13; 1 Peter 1:3-9; 1 John 5:11-13)
We believe God created humans, both male and female, in His perfect image. Because of its rebellion, however, all humanity is alienated from God. As a result, humans are incapable of having a relationship with God based solely upon their effort. (Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 3:10-18; Ephesians 2:1-3)
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who indwells the followers of Jesus at the point of salvation. He also equips them with spiritual gifts for serving others, and guides them in the journey to become like Christ as they relinquish control of their lives. (John 14:15-26; Acts 2:1-33; Romans 8:1-27; Galatians 5:16-23; 1 John 2:20-27)
