Who We Are


Central Church of Christ in Hemet

We Exist to Proclaim the Good News!

We are here to proclaim a message of hope to others who desire forgiveness of sins, the gift of the Holy Spirit, and eternal life. Jesus focused His life on meeting the spiritual needs of people. His life was lived for others. And in the supreme and crowning act of God’s grace, Jesus willingly died on the cross for the sins of the world, shedding His blood to make possible our forgiveness.

Our Mission

Central exists because we want to introduce people to Jesus. (Romans 10:14) says, “But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him?” And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?” Our purpose is to go and tell!

People Under the Word

The Central Church of Christ is a body of believers committed to using the inspired Word of God as its divine textbook for life. We simply want to follow the Bible–not add to it or take anything away from it. As such, we want to be just Christians, nothing more, and nothing less than what we read in the Bible.

People Who Praise

At the Central Church, we feel it is important to come together for an uplifting time of worship. We meet every Lord’s day to grow closer to God through singing, prayer, a lesson from God’s Word and remembering Jesus’ death and resurrection by partaking of the Lord’s Supper.

People of Fellowship

Christianity is ultimately a religion of relationships. We build on our relationships by providing opportunities for fellowship with one another. At Central you will find a family that loves Jesus and loves one another. We find this passage in (1 John 1:7):but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Our mission statement can be summed up in one verse:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  (Mt 28:19–20)


A place where a person with no church background can come and feel comfortable and enjoy the service because the atmosphere will be friendly. The sermons are always practical, biblical and relevant.

A church that is fun for the entire family, a church where kids want to go because they have a great time experiencing God’s love. A church that builds families.

These dreams are being fulfilled because they are inspired by God!

A a church that helps every member find their ministry and lets them use their gifts and abilities to meet other’s needs. We believe the church is at her best when the doors are open to all of who have an interest in learning about the Christian faith. Wherever you are on your journey, our community is open to you.
