Central Church has a new logo packed with symbolism. Notice the fish in the image. The fish was used in the early church to secretly identify yourself as a Christian when it was truly dangerous to be one. In the fish, there are two Cs signifying Central Church, and the tail forms a cross representing Christ’s atonement for sins. We chose red as one of our colors not only because it is everywhere around our church but because it represents the blood that Christ spilled for us at Calvary. Note that the red portion of the logo forms a drop of that blood. Next to it all is our motto: “Central Church: where Christ is central.”


Sermon Series

Beginning Sunday. February 13, Reverend Dr. Jason Abbott begins a sermon series on the Book of Mark entitled “Urgent Good News”. Beginning with the proclamations of John the Baptist, the Book of Mark covers the miracles performed by Jesus, the calling of the Disciples, and many of His parables… and is thus one of the most important Books in the Bible.

Please join us for worship on Sundays at 10:00am as we explore and meditate on these hallowed words together.

Central Church

118 W. Ashley Street, Jefferson City, MO 65101

Welcome to Central Church in Jefferson City, MO. Our mission is to be a welcoming, gospel-centered people who worship God and serve our community in word and deed.

The people of Central Church come together to commune with each other and to Commune with our Risen Savior. We truly believe that our mission IS mission… helping others, doing what we can to make life a little easier for those less fortunate, because that is what Christ has called us to do. At Central Church, you will find a church that soon feels like Home, and a congregation that soon feels like Family. We invite you to come visit with us, worship with us, and join our family.

Central Church was established in 1858 by a group of German immigrants in Jefferson City, MO as Central German Evangelical Church. Throughout our history, we have been part of the Evangelical, Evangelical & Reformed, and United Church of Christ denominations. We are now non-denominational, but we still hold fast to our Protestant, Lutheran, Evangelical & Reformed, and Congregational Christian roots and traditions, while being open to change and new opportunities.  We hope to see you at one of our worship services or one of our many functions!.
