Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
Andover Christian Center is a non-denominational, Spirit-filled Christian church in Andover, Massachusetts.
We believe God is first and foremost interested in knowing every person. That’s why He created man in the first place. And that’s why He gave His only Son, Jesus – so there would be no barrier between us and Him. Jesus paid the penalty for sin, and provided everything we need for our well-being in this life and for eternity. Man can only accept or reject God’s offer of life through Jesus - he cannot earn it.
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 convince and change people, not our wisdom or methods.
We are healthy and balanced in our lives; we are doing the work God has called each of us to do and we are positively impacting our world.
Our children’s and youth programs equip young people to live for God, taking advantage of everything that Jesus has provided for them, spirit, soul, and body.
