“Central develops leaders and instills a confidence in children that they are valued, they are loved by God, and they are capable. I appreciate the way this confidence guides them into adult life.”

Affiliated Congregations each select three Corporation Members. Corporation Members approve the slate for the Board of Trustees, who provide direct governance of Central Christian School. The Superintendent is accountable to the Board of Trustees, who are accountable to the Corporation.

These Foundational Documents are part of the Constitution of Central Christian School. These core statements speak to the jointly held beliefs of our Corporation, which is representative of a variety of congregations.
Central Christian School operates under the governance of a Corporation made up of Affiliated Churches. Central is not governed by Mennonite Church USA. However, Central Christian School uses the 1995 Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective as the faith statement for the school. The date, 1995, indicates that even if Mennonite Church USA would revise their Confession of Faith, that will not affect Central's continued use of the 1995 document. Each of the 24 articles of the 1995 Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective includes the scripture references that are the basis for each belief.
