Centreville Baptist Church exists to glorify God by making disciple-making disciples.
A healthy tree produces much fruit and so do healthy local churches. We long to see people converted, disciples matured, leaders raised up, and new churches to be planted.
Through Sunday gatherings, one-to-one discipleship, community groups to build relationships with other believers, and equip classes to help us grow in knowledge of God, the Bible, and Christian Living.
God's Voice Above Every Other
We are convicted that God has revealed both himself and our purpose as humans in the Scriptures, and that God's children seek to trust and obey his voice above every other voice including their own. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
All of Jesus for All of Life
We are a Christ-centered church seeking to exalt Christ in all things as we are being shaped by Christ in every area of our lives—thoughts, actions, deeds, work, friendship, marriage, etc. (Colossians 1:16)
Reaching Neighbors and Nations
Jesus sent every disciple on mission both to their neighbors and the nations in Matthew 28, and Jesus calls us to share the gospel with those near and far in all of life. This requires us to be all things to all people. (Matthew 28:18-20)
Many Peoples, One Body
We see it as a unique grace and responsibility that we live in one of the most diverse regions in the world with over 120 nations represented and believe that diversity displays the power of the Gospel. (Ephesians 2:11-22)
Local Church membership forms the context in which Christians can live out the 59 one-anothers of the New Testament building up the church through acts of service and use of their spiritual gifts. (John 13:34-35)
Patience with Others
The Holy Spirit is changing each of us into the image of Christ from one degree of glory to the next. None of us are yet what we shall be when Jesus returns to restore all things. (2 Corinthians 3:17-18)
It's more blessed to give than receive, so we will joyfully bless others individually and collectively as a church marked by life-giving generosity and faithful stewardship of God's resources. (James 1:17; 1 John 3:17)
