Central Christian Church of Coral Gables was founded in 1927 with a great desire and vision to fulfill the divine commission to build God’s Kingdom.
We are a Disciples of Christ, multi-generational, multicultural, bilingual family. Although we are diverse in the physical, we are united by the spirit of God.
Connection is an essential part of life and in everything we do we seek to effectively enable people to connect with God, each other and the community.
