Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
Andover Christian Center is a non-denominational Christian church in Andover, Massachusetts.
We believe God is good and wants the best for every person. That’s why He gave His only Son, Jesus – so there would be no barrier between us and Him. Jesus paid the penalty for our failures, and provided everything we need for our well-being in this life and for eternity. We can only accept God’s offer of life through Jesus - we can't earn it.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! - Psalm 34:8
The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation. - Psalm 145:9
For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16
In June 2006, Jim and Shelly Preston and their family relocated from the Midwest to Massachusetts to start Andover Christian Center. ACC's first service was held September 16, 2007.
Our vision for Andover Christian Center as a congregation:
We are committed to sharing the true hope of mankind, Jesus Christ, using every available resource.
We emphasize that Jesus is the answer to every need in all areas of life – spiritual, emotional, physical, relational, and material.
We emphasize that it is the demonstration of the Holy Spirit and His power that will bring lasting change in our lives, not our wisdom or methods.
We live healthy and balanced lives - we are doing the work God has called each of us to do and are positively impacting our world.
Our children’s and youth programs equip kids and students to live for God, taking advantage of everything that Jesus has provided for them, spirit, soul, and body.
