The Central Church of Christ is a Christ-centered, Bible-based, non-denominational church located in central Sarasota county for over 30 years.
Our desire is to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, to love one another, and to love the lost of our community and world. Central is made up of people just like you.
We come from all walks of life, from many geographic locations, and with various levels of spiritual growth and development.
Let someone from Central share with you our vision to be disciples who make disciples.
One on One Discipleship:
Jesus called us to make disciples of all nations by baptizing and teaching to them to obey all He commanded (Matt.28:18-20). There are opportunities to meet one on one (with couples, families or individuals) to personally study God’s word. One study is called The Way It Works which takes a person through a logical series of lessons showing how beginning with God and His character understanding His Plan for our lives we find fulfillment, joy, and peace in our relationship with Him and one another. Our goal is to help each person begin where they are and help them come to maturity in Christ.
Just ask those who attend our small groups three times per year about the numerous benefits. Relationship building, concentration on God’s word and prayer, and opportunities to bring friends and neighbors into an informal setting are just a few benefits. These groups provide an opportunity to BE community, to SHARE life, and to KNOW one another. We do three semesters of groups for approximately ten weeks each, with eight week breaks in the interim.
Believers Against Abuse and Neglect of Kids fosters partnerships between the faith community and the child welfare community to reduce the number of children abused and neglected in the 12th circuit of Florida. Growing out of our experience with the death of Carlie Brucia and the heart of God for children we participate in several programs within the community to champion the cause of children.
Family Central serves as the hub of our ministry at Central, “doing everything possible to reach and grow families in Christ.” We do this by working individually with each family to form a plan of growth, providing classes, workshops, small groups, teaching tools, and community referrals to meet the unique needs of each family. We believe that the stronger the family, the stronger the church, and the stronger the community.
