Christ Central, located in the heart of Spokane, is a caring community of many ages, backgrounds and experiences. People are accepted, cared about, loved and encouraged to follow the ministry of Jesus in word and deeds. Worship is Christ-centered, the Bible is our guide, and ministries are motivated by deep compassion for people and their needs. Our main goal through Bible studies and worship is to call everyone to "Know Jesus Christ and Make Jesus Christ Known". We believe men, women, boys and girls are all called to fully serve the Lord and live out God's purposes for their lives. While we are all imperfect, we serve a perfect God and can be restored to God's image through faith in Christ.
Our worship servics include songs of praise, prayer, scripture, traditional hymns, and the application of Scripture to today's needs. Central is devoted to praying for one another, serving in tangible ways through community ministries, and caring for each person wherever you are on life's journey.
Our Senior Pastor Rev Chris Thompson grew up in the midwest and did his studies at Grace College and Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake Indiana. After graduation, Pastor Chris spent the next twenty years as a Youth Pastor serving in Baptist Churches in California. Then taking a leap of faith Pastor Chris planted Restoration Project church in Ohio. Having handed the church over to an Associate Pastor he is here in Spokane with us.
He has a passion for the word of God and it's transforming power in the lives of those who study it. He is an expositional Bible teacher, meaning that the word is read and examined in context, each verse is given its full merit. The power of the gospel is not meant to be exclusive or elusive.
