Our Vision is as follows:
“Engaging, Experiencing and Extending the all-inclusive love of Christ”

As a congregation that values both the mind and the heart, the mission of Brentwood Christian Church is to offer a welcoming environment for those in the greater Springfield area to engage, experience and extend the all-inclusive love of Jesus Christ as we share in dynamic worship, extravagant hospitality, unwavering respect and compassionate care.

Dynamic Worship:
We believe connecting to the same Spirit expressed in the life of Jesus Christ has the power to enliven and transform us today. As we ground ourselves in this Spirit, we are reminded that the deepest forms of worship lead to transformative acts of justice, mercy and compassion (Micah 6:8).

Extravagant Hospitality:
We believe each human being is created in the image of God and should be treated with the dignity that affords, no matter what one’s background or status might be. We are called to intentionally welcome and embrace those from all walks of life (Genesis 1:27).

Unwavering Respect:
We believe that listening to others and respecting them is a deeply spiritual act. Church is a sacred place where we come together to share our beliefs, doubts, joys and struggles without fear of being rejected by others or by God (John 8:7).

Compassionate Care:
We believe that the church exists for the sake of those it is called to serve. Recalling that we can only love God as much as we love others, we strive to reach out from “our doorsteps to the ends of the earth” (Matthew 25:34-40).

Central Christian Church is part of the denomination Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the USA and Canada. As such, we firmly believe that God calls all Christians to shared ministry and lay leadership is essential in our understanding of who we are as God’s people. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper – communion – every Sunday and we insist that the table is open for ALL who want to partake. We practice “believer’s baptism” by immersion but we recognize all forms of baptism. Members are accepted by transfer of membership from another church or by a confession of faith and baptism.

At Central, we strive to be faithful to our Vision in all areas of ministry we undertake, with special emphasis on genuine Christian hospitality, excellence in worship, deep commitment to local and global outreach, and special devotion to children and youth. It has been a part of our long history to undertake certain social justice issues, and in 2016, we formed an “official” Social Justice League led by passionate and competent congregational lay leaders. We invite you to visit us for worship, Sunday school, and/or one of our many special events. Come and see if you’d like to become a part of Central Christian Church, where God calls us to be a welcoming and open faith community where Christian love, action, and discipleship unite!
