Welcome to Christ the King Church in Newton! We are one congregation of Christ the King Presbyterian Church. As a multi-congregational church we seek to provide both autonomy and interdependency among our congregations.
Our vision is to see a people gathered in Newton to worship God, to be a blessing to our community, and to seek our own as well as our community's transformation through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We intend to pursue this vision by providing opportunities for public corporate worship, for service to Newton and neighboring communities, and for relationships empowered by the love of Jesus Christ. Thus, on-going themes of our church are Gospel, Community, Hospitality, and Evangelism.
Gospel, Community, Hospitality, Evangelism are the four core principles of CTK. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ leads us into community. Such community is marked by hospitality (love of the stranger). And hospitality is the conduit for evangelism, proclaiming the reason for our faith, hope, and love.
We believe that a community of people is the best avenue through which to apply the truths of the Gospel to the estrangement of sin in each of us. Simply put, we need each other. We grow in both our apprehension as well as our application of the gospel through community. And it is through such a community that a watching world perceives the validity of Jesus Christ.
Congregations of Christ the King Presbyterian Church
Christ the King Newton is one congregation of Christ the King Presbyterian Church, a multi ethnic, multi-site church serving greater Boston. We understand ourselves to be one church, meeting separately in local communities throughout the greater Boston area. We gather together semi-annually to celebrate all that God is doing in each of our communities, to recognize our unity, and to seek the welfare of our communities through prayer. It is our hope and intent to have many more congregations throughout the region in the months and years to come.
