At Gospel Central Church we love God, therefore we love people and are committed to sharing the Good News about Jesus in our community, Zambia and the nations beyond. We are one church family that meets in different locations on Sundays to remember who Jesus is and what He has done for us, to encourage one another in our walk with Jesus, and to grow our understanding of our faith and of God. During the week, we "scatter" into our neighborhoods and workplaces and meet in groups where we do life together in a messy pursuit of Jesus.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired Word of God. It is our final authority for faith, life and for the governance of the Church.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, namely, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
We believe that God created mankind in His own image, male and female.
Our church is lead by an eldership team with a Lead Elder captaining the team. The Lead Elder functions as a "first among equals". The elders oversee all aspects of the church including setting doctrine, administering church discipline and determining the overall direction of the church. The elders are accountable to one another and to leaders from Four 12 partnering churches. This includes those with Ephesians 4 giftings.
Manie and Lindsay Lombard were serving on the leadership team of Craig Clark at Urban Life Church, Johannesburg, South Africa, when they responded to God's call to establish a new church in Lusaka, Zambia. In June 2008 they held their first Sunday meeting as South City Church in the house of the then principal of Baobab College, Tim Middleton.
South City Church's name was changed to Gospel Central Church on 30 May 2017. In Jan 2017 we started partnering with Four12, a movement of churches partnering together to advance the Kingdom of God
We have three core values we base everything on that we do at Gospel Central Church.
The Good News is that God is completely aware of our sin problem, and in and through the work of Jesus Christ, accepts us and changes us by the power of his Spirit.
Participating in a community is one of the best ways to encourage spiritual growth.
As stewards we recognize that all we have belongs to the Lord and has been given to us by God to invest for His purposes.
