OUR FIVE CORE IDENTITIES
Christianity is all about the truth of who God is. God is who He says He is. The Bible is God’s Word to us, and it is true. Everything we do at CTK Church is unashamedly biblically based. We don’t tell God who to be; God tells us who to be. This is one of the great things about the Bible! It not only tells us who God is, it tells us who we are. Through God’s Word, we have identified five “core identities” that shape the life of our church.
We are a family of brothers and sisters in Christ; individual members united in one body; with dignity and worth as image bearers of God; striving for unity, diversity, and maturity; enjoying the safety and love of the gospel even through conflict; and submitting to the care of biblically qualified elders.
We are learners who are committed to KNOWING Christ, becoming more like Him as we behold Him in his Word, submitting to the authority of Scripture, learning and applying theology to life, and speaking the truth in love to one another.
We are worshipers who are committed to LOVING Christ, cultivating joyful affection for Him, repenting of the depths of our sin, experiencing the fullness of his grace, and walking in the power and victory of the Holy Spirit.
We are servants who are committed to OBEYING Christ by doing good works; loving our neighbors in the home, church, workplace, and community; pursuing deeds of love, justice, and mercy; and partnering with like-minded organizations for the good of our city.
We are witnesses who are committed to OBEYING Christ; declaring the gospel with culturally intelligible language; trusting God to give faith to those who hear; raising up mature disciples to advance the gospel; and supporting local and global church planting.
