- Biblical Authority
The Bible is God's Word to us, the story of his relationship with his people. It is the authority behind all our teaching.
- Spirit-Empowered Living
God's nearness is made known to us through his Spirit - the Third person of the Trinity. He guides, comforts and challenges us to live out new life in Christ.
God works through the discipline prayer in our homes and our church. Prayer is conversation with God and helps us to under-stand his mission and message.
God has placed us together to do his work in Quincy. We desire to do this with a unified heart, seeking nothing for ourselves but God's will only.
God transforms us through our relationship to the Body of Christ. Our relationships are marked by honesty and reconciliation, faith, hope and love. God's character is reflected in the way we fellowship together. We aspire to live out the "one another" passages in the Gospels. We also desire to be in close community with the greater body of Christ.
- Living Out Our Spiritual Giftedness
God enables us to accomplish his mission by blessing us with a diversity of gifted people. Each person at Central Baptist brings unique skills and gifts that complement each other and enable us to complete God's mission. Through our gifts we are able to encourage and equip the saints for the work of the Kingdom. The body works together as a team to accomplish these things.
- Evangelism and Missions
God calls us to take the gospel to the world both close to home and far away. We are a sending church, growing strong disciples who are sharing the love of God in many places.
- Fruit of the Spirit
God calls us to live fruitful lives that draw others to Him. We want to live lives of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control. We wish to be encouragers of good fruit by mentoring and discipling believers to grow in the grace of the Lord.
