Central Manor Campmeeting was established to glorify our God and Saviour Jesus Christ through the edification of believers and the salvation of the lost.
This we seek to do through the preaching and teaching of God's Word, the worship of God in sincerity and truth, and the loving fellowship of God's people in a unique campmeeting environment.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Bible is the Word of God!
It is fully inspired by God to the very words and is true in every aspect in the original writing. It is therefore the only authority for faith and practice.
God is a Triune God!
There is one God existing in three personalities; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are co-eternal in existence, co-equal in essence, and one in purpose.
Jesus Christ is the Only Savior of Men!
By means of the incarnation, through the virgin birth, the second person of the trinity became the perfect Savior; wholly man and wholly God united in one person. The Son of God died a substitutionary death on the cross to redeem sinners, and rose bodily from the grave to give eternal life to all who believe in Him. He ascended to the right hand of the Father where he presently abides, and will come again in power and glory to receive and reward His own.
Man in his Natural State is Totally Depraved!
Although created in the image of God, man by original sin has become the recipient of a sinful nature. As a result, man is sinfully enslaved in transgression, and without the provision of God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ, is eternally lost.
Shortly before the beginning of the 20th century, in an era when campmeetings were springing up in many places, our founder, Dr. I. A. MacDannald got the vision to start a campmeeting in the beautiful wooded area which we now occupy. The first camp opened with nineteen tents on Thursday evening September 7,1892.
In 1905 the Central Manor Campmeeting Association was formed. In the same year the first tabernacle-twenty feet by fifty feet was built and action was taken to build a dining hall.
Tents were used exclusively until 1926 when three cabins were built. There are now about 200 cabins.
~ Our present auditiorium accommodates approximately 1,000 people. The dining hall can seat 400 people at one meal. ~
The camp is incorporated and functions as a non-denominational campmeeting and Bible Conference facility, where the fundamental truths of the Word of God are faithfully proclaimed.
