bringing all people into healthy relationship with Jesus and one another


Centennial Evangelical Free Church began in 1994 as a daughter church of Grace EFC in Fridley. Our facilities are located on Lake Drive (Hwy 23) halfway between Lino Lakes and Forest Lake.

But we are not a building.

We are a community of people from all walks of life and all ages who want to love God, experience community, and serve our neighbors. We believe the church of Jesus Christ is a people, not a place; a movement in the world, not a hiding place from the world.

We are not a place for perfect people. We are people who are learning the skill of struggling together well in all of life’s ups and downs. And we believe that the life Jesus has called us to is a life lived together, not apart.
