Serve, Love, and Connect
At Jesus Center, we exist to exalt Jesus through serving, loving, and connecting people. There are many ways you can get connected at “Jesus Center,” which involves our weekly worship service, weekly small group meetings, community events and outreach, and our weekly corporate prayer line. In addition, you can use your gifts and talents by joining our worship and creative team, serving in our Juvenile Prison and Nursing Home ministries, participating in short term mission trips (both local and international), and participating in our after-school mentoring programs. If you want to use your gift or talent in a ministry that is not mentioned here, but that will benefit and edify our community, please let us know how we can be of assistance to you.

We believe that baptism is a mark of Christian discipleship and a spiritual expression of the believer’s relationship with Jesus Christ and his allegiance to him as Lord and Savior. Baptism is also a public proclamation of the believer’s faith in and obedience to Christ. We believe that baptism is followed after genuine repentance and conversion, and we practice and teach believer’s baptism by immersion, as commanded in the Bible.
Matthew 3:13-17; 28:18-20; Acts 8:36-38; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12.

Prayer is the essence of the Christian life. Prayer is the fuel that sustains the people of God and the engine that keeps the Church moving forward. God has chosen prayer as a providential means of worship and communication with him. Through prayer, we encounter the Triune God, experience intimacy with him, and we are invaded by his awesome and holy presence.
At Jesus Center, we value corporate prayer of the followers of Jesus Christ. We believe when we pray together as a church, God acts, mountains move, chains are broken, and grace comes down.
Our ministry of prayer involves the “Jesus Center Prayer Box,” through which, we invite you to post your prayer requests and share your praise reports. Through our “Corporate Prayer Line,” we seek God together as his people and articulate intercessory prayers to him on your behalf. To learn more about each activity, click on the link below:

Serving individuals and families is the essence of “Jesus Center.” God has called the people of Jesus Center to serve its community and care for the people in the Treasure Coast. We are intentional about this ministry of Christian stewardship and service. Serving others is not only missional and evangelistic, it is a key element of being a follower of Christ and a crucial marker of Jesus’ own understanding of his mission in the world and what Christians should do in the world:
“The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”–Matthew 20:28
“Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, 3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 4 rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” 7 Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” 8 Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” 9 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” 10 Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “Not all of you are clean.”
12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.”–John 13:1-17
Hence, we invite you to come serve at Jesus Center so we can grow together and make a positive impact in our community by empowering individuals and families, transforming human lives, and changing the living conditions of individuals and families.
