Who We Are:

At Center Grove Church we believe every aspect of the Christian life should be lived giving glory to God. We have three core values that direct all that we think, say and do because we value relationship, discipleship, and service:

Strangers become Friends: BELONG

Strangers become Friends. At CGC, we value relationship with God and others. While we live much of our lives like strangers to others, what most of us want are meaningful relationships with genuine friends. However, we are more than just a “friendly” church. God created us to be in relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ.

Friends become Disciples: BELIEVE

Friends become disciples. God wants more than friendship from us. God wants disciples who know, love, and serve Jesus. The Center Grove Church family is committed to a lifelong process of spiritual growth for all ages. We are a learning, praying, worshipping and serving community.

Disciples change the World: BECOME

Disciples change the World. At Center Grove Church we don’t just tell people about the Good News of Jesus Christ – we live it out in the real world. We proclaim and demonstrate to the world that God is alive and rules on earth through local and global missional work.
