How does CTC accomplish its mission?
We strive to do this by 1) creating and distributing Christ-exalting resources, and 2) training pastors, elders, and other church leaders to lead the Lord’s people toward Christ-exalted living.
What is New Covenant Theology?
CTC adheres to what has come to be called New Covenant Theology (NCT). Put very simply, NCT affirms that the universe exists to glorify God through Jesus Christ. We believe the entire Scripture must be interpreted as the story of Jesus Christ rather than as the story of the kingdom of Israel or the story of Godʼs covenant of grace.
NCT believes that when the Holy Spirit called the New Covenant new, He meant it. The Old Covenant with all of its wonderful shadows—temple, priesthood, sacrifices, kings, prophets, and nation—have been utterly fulfilled by Jesus Christ and His Church. The Law of Moses has also been fulfilled. This does not place the New Covenant believer in a lawless state, free to sin. No, we are under the Law of Christ (1 Cor. 9:20-21) and strive to obey the commands of King Jesus by the power of His Spirit.While we love and appreciate our brothers who dwell in the camps of Reformed/Covenant Theology and Dispensationalism, we believe their hermeneutic is slightly off center.
Specifically, we affirm the doctrines of grace, justification by faith alone, the necessity of good works as proof of regeneration, the sufficiency of Christ, His Word, and His Spirit, the now/not-yet view of Christ’s kingdom, the Church as the exclusive people of God, and the fulfillment of the entire Old Testament in Christ. We deny infant baptism, the Law of Moses as binding on Christians, and the 7-year Jewish-centric rapture/tribulation followed by a Jewish-centric millennial kingdom.

What is CTC?
CTC is a Christ-centered ministry whose mission is to teach and to create resources that help Christians become intentionally Christ-obsessed in all things. Numerous causes compete for the allegiance of Christians. Some are good things, others border on idolatry. The Scripture, however, declares that Christ is to have first place in all things (Col. 1:18). Therefore, we work to encourage believers toward purposeful living with explicit devotion to Jesus Christ in every facet of life (whether Bible study, teaching, marriage, parenting, worship, working, playing, learning, retirement planning, or anything else we do).
