Do you have a predefined profile for your printer or do you use a custom printer profile?

Are you sure you have setup all the needed and correct parameters for you printer in the printer setup in Cura?

    In Cura under settings you find the printer configuration tab. There you should be able to define the bed size and some other things. 
     

    Most 3rd party printer profiles are contributed by the community, so it could be that there is something wrong with the profile or that the Ender comes in  different sizes - I don't know much about Creality printers. 
     

    But I guess that you just have to correct the build volume.

    As Smithy says, the settings in Cura need to match your printer.  It appears that the build volume of your machine is 350 x 350 x 400.  The origin should be left front corner (not the center).

    The Home Offset settings in the printer firmware will have an effect on the virtual center of the build plate.  Explaining that goes beyond your question but IF your build surface is 350 x 350 and you use the LCD controls to send the print head to X=175 Y=175 it should be at the center of the build surface.  If it isn't then you need to adjust the X Y Home Offsets.  Home Offset Z should be zero.

    Also check machine settings to make sure "Origin at Center" is NOT checked.

     

    And in the FWIW department, you can increase bedsize dimensions to 360x360 with no ill effects.  I have been running mine like that for a few months.
