Growing God’s Kingdom

An introduction to Central.

This blog is devoted to communicating the vision of the Central church to grow God’s Kingdom in downtown Little Rock, central Arkansas, and to the ends of the earth. This vision is the engine behind our existence, but it is also a work in progress as we want to continually improve our faithfulness as well as our strategy.

Join us on this journey.

We gather regularly in downtown Little Rock to live out the mission of Jesus, just as we have been doing for the last 12 years. Although we live all over central Arkansas and have a variety of backgrounds, beliefs and assumptions about the world, we share our lives. We believe Jesus came to grow God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven and we want to imitate Him.

Join us on this journey.

As a community we constantly battle the temptations of the world. We know that the way of the Kingdom is different than the way of the world, and as a result we are committed to holding high in our culture the values of the Kingdom of God.

  • In our urban setting we value diversity, and strive to be as inclusive as Jesus would be. We daily learn more about what it means to ACCEPT people.
  • In this culture of isolation we value connection, and strive to be as relational as Jesus would be. We daily learn more about what it means to RELATE to people.
  • In a world of immediate results we value process, and we strive to be as intentional as Jesus would be. We daily learn more about what it means to be a DISCIPLE.
  • In a situation of individualism we value community, and we strive to be as intentional as Jesus would be. We daily learn more about what it means to SHARE.
  • In a time of self-promotion we value humility, and we strive to be as selfless as Jesus would be. We daily learn more about what it means to SERVE.

As our community is learning to live out the values of the heavenly kingdom here on earth we hold high the importance of each person in the eyes of God by valuing individuals, both within and without our community. We invite you to live life with us. We invite you to follow Jesus. We invite you to partner with us as we grow God’s Kingdom one person at a time. 

Join us as we journey together.
