Church and Culture

Jesus told his disciples that "If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world..."  John 15:9 (NLT) The Apostle Paul will tell the Romans "Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think..." Romans 12:2 (NLT)

Unfortunately in our society, just as in Jesus' time, the world has chosen to reject God's plan for his children and instead chooses to serve its own wants and desires. The mission of Central Church of Christ is by Loving God and Loving Others We Will Reach Our World For Jesus Christ. There are many ways to do this and one of those is to "Speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15) so that those who have been deceived can know what they must do to be in a right relationship with God.
