The entire Bible is about mission—God's mission to redeem a sinful humanity—from opening chords struck in the early chapters of Genesis throughout the entire canon, finding its perfect fulfillment and expression in the incarnation, earthly ministry, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. God has always been the God of the nations. That story continues to the last words of Scripture and continues into the present.
God's people are still called to be connected to His Church locally, but ever pushing outward. While we delight to know of those places where Christians are maturing in the gospel and are thankful that we can be strengthened in the faith in that fellowship of believers, we also long and pray to see that same growth in places that have gone spiritually dormant.
CTK currently supports a number of missionaries around the world, and our hope is that we can provide a level of support that goes beyond financial: to pray and encourage these men and women who are on the frontier of Kingdom work. Please contact the church office to find out more about getting involved.
