Mission, vision and Core Values
The Church of God ”Worship Center” is a community church. That serves the community of Canton, Ohio. We strive to reach people of all walks of life, but those who particularly desire to experience a life of radical faith in Christ and are likely to respond to the challenge of experiencing the hand of God as a lifestyle. We encourage and are committed to a high level of participation in ministry by all who wish to identify with us. It is our vision to build a congregation of unified people that continues to grow until we saturate our community, our city, our nation, even the world with the message of Christ.
