City Center Baptist Church is committed to expository preaching. God has ordained the preaching of His Word for the nourishment and edification of the church, and the proclamation of the gospel. We understand the Bible is God’s gift to His people, guiding them into all truth: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

It is our practice to preach through books of the Bible, week-by-week, seeking to make the main point of the text the main point of the sermon, that Jesus may be glorified in all things.

Feel free to click on one of the sermons below to examine the preaching ministry of our church.

The aim of preaching is to proclaim/make plain the GOSPEL: that GOD created all things, including mankind, male and female, as his highest creation made in his image. Mankind was meant to reflect the glory of God, yet MAN sinned, bringing separation from God and death. But God, who is rich in mercy, and only love, promised a Deliverer to be born of a woman. JESUS is that savior! His miraculous birth, sinless life, authoritative teaching, and countless miracles all proved him to be the Christ, to be God in the flesh. His death on the cross satisfied God’s wrath toward our sin, giving humanity the way to be reconciled to our Creator. MAN must respond to this gracious offer with repentance and faith to gain salvation.
