He teaches extraordinary classes for our Men, as well as, our general Bible studies.  If you are looking for spiritual enlightenment and growth, Sundays at Central will make a difference in your walk with the Lord!

We have a loving atmosphere where you are greeted at the door with kindness.

  •             Why Preach If No One Is Listening?
    (Part 1)
                  

    During the days of Kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, Isaiah, the prophet of God prophesized that the rich unmercifully oppressed the poor. Laziness, drunkenness and indifference were prevalent. Justice was perverted and the law was used to mistreat rather than protect. False gods were worshipped such as Baal and Moloch. Soothsaying and superstition existed, and religion had been divorced from everyday life. The prophet Isaiah asked the question, “Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?”  

    This is an important question because it Eradicates the reservation of the Message, establishes the Exaltation of the Messenger and Exhibits the depth of the Messiah’s humiliation. After 700 years, that same question was quoted by the apostles John and Paul in John 12:38-41 and Romans 10:14-16.
      

    Regarding the question “Who has believed our report,” Isaiah spoke prophetically so as to include other prophets. Like he himself, the other prophets had all received the same result: Rejection!
      

    Consider this. What had been rejected was their report. The word report means “something heard, an announcement, or doctrine.” This begs the question: “Why preach if no one is listening?” They preached what God had commanded just as we do, because it is God’s power to save and not ours. Therefore, God gives the increase after we have done what He has commanded us to do, in spite of situations or circumstances where it seems no one is listening!
