THE ENGAGE INITIATIVE
In 1943, Central Church of the Nazarene was planted with a passion for reaching people with the love of Jesus. Central was faithful to her call and many came to know, love and follow Christ.
In the early 2000s, God revealed a new path for Central. To meet the needs of a rapidly growing city, God led Central to the suburbs of East Orlando to reach young families.
This location led to a new name; Center Pointe Community Church, and obedience to this call has impacted thousands through worship, discipleship groups, compassionate ministry, missions, sports ministry, and community partnerships.
Orange County is expected to grow by 20% by 2030; that’s over 300,000 new people. Just minutes from Center Pointe are thousands of people who live without the hope of Jesus.
But how do we reach those in our community? It starts with our singular focus – to become More Like Christ in all of life, through Worship, Fellowship and Service.
We believe that we have no greater purpose than to see Christ formed more in us with each new day. And, as Christ continues to shape us, we will be faithful in proclaiming his grace and love to the world around us.
Center Pointe has a rich legacy of impact in our community. Our legacy compels us forward to reach the
thousands of people living in our neighborhoods who do not know the hope and love of Jesus.
The Engage Initiative is an investment first into people and second in our ministry venue and outreach ministries that will call each of us into further relationships with nonbelievers.
We have been called by God to join Him in reaching them. Now is the time to further invest in outreach ministries that provide a place of belonging for all who come onto our property and connect with us so they may see the love of Jesus in us.
Now is the time for us to step up, to step out, and to fully embrace the future God has for us. Just as others previously sacrificed to provide our facility and our outreach ministries, we too are called to sacrifice to ensure our outreach remains effective and our facility remains a vital ministry outlet.
The journey that started in 1943 continues to unfold and the need is greater today than ever. Together we can impact others with the love of Jesus Christ. May all who follow in our steps find that we were faithful at every turn and in every way. Center Pointe, this is our opportunity to sacrifice; to Engage.
