For more than 150 years, Central has been an integral part of the Meridian/Lauderdale County area. We are a church with a rich history and passion to reach others with the love of Christ. We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. To put it another way, we want to see people grow in love of others and love of God so that they are empowered to live their best life and help others do the same. We believe that community is essential in this process. We seek to connect with others for support and grace for the journey of life. That's why we say life is better connected. We put that belief into practice here.
Our core verse is Proverbs 27:17, which says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
Together, we are better equipped to face all the obstacles of life. Community allows us to help one another grow into the people and Christ followers we were created to become. We offer various ministries and ministry opportunities to allow you to engage in relationships and life with one another and our community. We're glad you're here and invite you to take a look around our site to find out more about what we offer. Life is truly better connected and we'd love to connect with you!
