Center Church’s core mission is to become a Center for spiritual, social, moral, and ethical connection and collaboration with people, programs, agencies, faith communities and neighbors of all kinds in greater Hartford, while developing a vibrant, creative, nurturing, diverse worship life.
As Center Church we respond to God by nurturing faith and building authentic connections and relationships.
Center Church is first and foremost a city church. Our history is deeply connected with the life of the City of Hartford and we honor our vision to be a sacred space at the heart of the city. As a faithful and visionary Christian community, we seek to be a place where the dividing barriers that separate and alienate us from one another can be torn down. As a living community of faith, we strive to encourage every member and friend of Center Church to grow in faith and in appreciation for God’s gift of life in community. Our Guiding Principles are the following:
We covenant with one another to seek and respond to the word of God. We propose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known and to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the church to witness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshiping God, and striving for truth, justice and peace. As did our fathers [and mothers], we depend upon the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us. We pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God, and we look with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life. Amen.
