We are glad to welcome you to Central Church of Christ. Central has been located in Portsmouth, Ohio, on the corner of Grandview and Robinson Avenues for nearly 100 years. In the words of Jesus, “A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Central Church of Christ has long been a part of this community and people know the long, rich history of the church. But it is not the long past history that we want to talk about. We do not want to only glory in the past. We are interested in what the church is doing today and what we can do for you. Jesus Christ is calling you to himself and to his church now. Listen to his calling and become part of his body, the church. Many opportunities of service and Christian growth and maturity are offered through Central Church of Christ and I encourage you to check out the other pages on this web site.
Can we help you to become a Christian? The Bible teaches us that faith is the beginning place for a relationship with Jesus Christ. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that we must ‘believe that he exists and is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek him.‘ We are commanded to repent of our sins. Jesus said, ‘Unless you repent you also will perish.’ (Luke 13:3,5) In our faith we acknowledge that we believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, just as he claimed. (Matt. 10:32) We see this confession of faith first being spoken by Peter as he said, “You are the Christ, the Son of God.” (Matthew 16:24) We are to be baptized into Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:38. Following this we remain faithful even to the point of death. (Rev. 2:10) If we can help you in this regard please call upon us.
If we can pray for you or help you in other ways, please let us know.
Again, welcome to Central Church of Christ.
