How to Join the Central Family
MEN: SAVE THE DATE! Wild Game Dinner Saturday, February 25 6:00 pm
Believing that God’s Word teaches faithfulness in service and holiness in life, we hold membership in His church in high esteem. You may become a member: • By professing Christ as your personal Savior and following Him in scriptural baptism. • By transfer of your church membership from a congregation of “like faith and order”. • By statement of your faith and scriptural baptism. Membership is then completed by attending CONNECT! Class held every other month. Please feel free to call the church office (329.9283) to schedule a time to speak and pray with a pastor concerning membership.
