Our Beliefs:

Central is affiliated with the Assemblies of God, which makes up the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination with more than 67 million members among the nations. The Assemblies of God provides an opportunity for us to serve together with other Believers who share our passion for the Word and the Spirit. And we support AG missionaries around the globe in their call to share the Gospel. Central also works in close harmony with Cry Of Deliverance International Ministries. Cry is the global evangelism ministry of Pastor Doug and Pam.

As an Assemblies of God church, Central holds tightly to these four, simple truths from the Word of God:

    1.  Jesus Christ is our Savior (and there is no other savior available to anyone at any time)!

    2.  Jesus is our Healer (spiritually, emotionally, physically-using His touch, doctors, medicine, etc. - He heals)!

    3.  Jesus is our Baptizer in the Holy Spirit (and every Believer is a candidate)!

    4.  Jesus Christ is our soon-coming King (which could be at any time)!
