CentralU is an expression of our efforts to communicate and teach the four canons, which serve as the foundation of CBC

Why CentralU?

In Jesus’ final commandment to His followers as recorded in Matthew 28 He called upon us to

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

“Make disciples.” It is a command as clear as the day is long, and if we fail in this task we tragically miss the mark of what Jesus wants His church to be. We do not want to miss the mark! We want to make disciples! It should be the case that at the end of any year our church should look and sound more like Jesus than it did at the beginning of that year. We are committed to seeing that happen.

We want Central U to be an avenue for deep engagement in our four canons. Therefore:

Central U exists to create disciples of Jesus Christ by providing strategic and formative opportunities for growth and engagement in the areas of ecclesiology (“authentic family”), theology (“around the whole gospel”), doxology (“for the glory of God”), and missiology (“the reaching of the nations”).

Forming disciples is more than a class, of course, and so we would like these intentional and strategic small groups to be more than just a classes! Rather, see these as growth cells in the church, as opportunities for you and your brothers and sisters in Christ to learn more with an eye toward following more. I pray that all of you will participate, be challenged, be enriched, and be equipped for following Jesus in the world today.
