Our Mission:
Centreville Presbyterian Church exists to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ…To Know Jesus and Make Him Known.
Our Vision:
We are ignited, active, growing disciples of Jesus Christ, for NOVA.

WE BELIEVE:
GOD
We believe in one sovereign God, Creator of the universe, who eternally exists in three equal persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—the Holy Trinity.

JESUS
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, both fully God and fully human. We believe that he lived a sinless life on earth in perfect obedience to the Father—offering up his life on the Cross as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. We believe that he rose again on the third day and ascended into heaven where he is seated on the right hand of God as our High Priest and Lord.

HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a gift given to all who believe. We believe that the Holy Spirit actively resides in the life of every believer as the source of understanding Scripture, Godly wisdom, strength in tribulation, and guidance in our relationships with God. The Holy Spirit intercedes for us in prayer and is actively working to transform us to be more like Christ.

THE BIBLE
We believe that the Bible, in its original manuscripts, is the inspired and inerrant Word of God—infallible in its teaching and the final authority on all matters of faith and everyday life.

THE CHURCH
We believe that the church is the gathering of believers who acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. Acting as the body of Christ, we believe the church is called to go out and share in the life and person of Jesus Christ. The church, while it is filled with broken and imperfect people, finds healing, hope, and joy in the perfect love of God.

JUSTIFICATION
We believe that justification is by faith alone, something that cannot be earned, and through it we are given access to a right standing relationship with God

SALVATION
We believe that salvation and its resulting eternal relationship with God is offered by his grace through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe salvation is received through faith in Christ, repentance, and not by good works.

If you’ve never lived in NOVA (our nickname for Northern Virginia), you should know it’s a beautiful and exciting place to live. Centreville is well-known for being a very diverse and international area. Near “downtown” Centreville, we have several Korean, Thai, Ethiopian, and Vietnamese businesses to eat and enjoy. These make for an enjoyable and educational time with the family!

Speaking of an enjoyable time, Centreville is right outside Washington DC and not too far from the Shenandoah mountains. If you visit, you’ll most likely want to stay here and take in all that the city has to offer!
