Meet Centreville Presbyterian Church:

We are a Bible-based, Gospel-focused, Discipleship passionate Presbyterian church. I hope it’s clear from that sentence where our priorities are.

You don’t need to be Presbyterian to come on board, but we do have a few distinctives that we think you may find refreshing. God is moving at CPC! We are in a period of growth and change as new generations of family are coming.
