Who We Are:
At Center Grove Church we believe every aspect of the Christian life should be lived giving glory
to God. We have three core values that direct all that we think, say and do because we value
relationship, discipleship, and service:

Strangers become Friends: BELONG
Strangers become Friends. At CGC, we value relationship with God and others. While we live much of
our lives like strangers to others, what most of us want are meaningful relationships with genuine
friends. However, we are more than just a “friendly” church. God created us to be in relationship
with Him through faith in Jesus Christ.

Friends become Disciples: BELIEVE
Friends become disciples. God wants more than friendship from us. God wants disciples who know,
love, and serve Jesus. The Center Grove Church family is committed to a lifelong process of
spiritual growth for all ages. We are a learning, praying, worshipping and serving community.

Disciples change the World: BECOME
Disciples change the World. At Center Grove Church we don’t just tell people about the Good News of
Jesus Christ – we live it out in the real world. We proclaim and demonstrate to the world that God
is alive and rules on earth through local and global missional work.
