At CTK Downtown, we believe we have a vision from God: To be a diverse family shaped by the Word, empowered by the Spirit, sent into the World. This vision is both exciting and challenging, refreshing and risky.
It seems so simple, yet it calls all of us to grow. It calls us to grow and make room for the presence of God. It calls us to grow and include people who are different than us into God’s multi-ethnic family called the church.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." – John 13:35
We believe whole-heartedly this vision is impossible without God's power teaching us how to love. But as we give up our preferences to make space for Jesus, we will find ourselves truly living as Jesus called us to: “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another (John 13:35).”
