Our Vision: A Church for Every Generation.
A church for every generation. That’s how we see ourselves, and that’s what we strive to be. That means no matter your age, culture, or how long (or short) you’ve been following God, you have a place here with us.
Centenary Church is part of the United Methodist Conference.
Our Core Beliefs
At Centenary we believe in the Trinity—that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible contains His perfect truth, and that truth is greater and more powerful than human wisdom. We believe that Centenary Church is His property, not ours, and that it is our job to be faithful keepers of His church until we pass it on to the next generation of believers.

Pastor Tim Gravatt and his wife Gina have only been with Centenary since the beginning of July 2020, but have already endeared themselves to the congregation and community with their enthusiasm, openness, and genuine desire to care for the people of Centenary and Modesto.
To get to know them better, check out their TGIF video series, (Tim & Gina’s “It’s Friday!”), available on YouTube.

1st Corinthians 12:12-14 | The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit. Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. (NLT)
