In 1997 a small group of families launched a new church they called Christ the King and joined the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) in their mission to worship, know and serve the King so that he is honored, and his reign is powerfully extended in Houston and beyond. What began as a handful of families meeting in a hotel conference room, the Lord has grown into a thriving community of worshippers.
Looking back over our years of ministry, we’ve seen the Lord at work among us and beyond us. We’ve seen churches planted, campus ministries launched, marriages healed, children baptized, students growing in faith, deep friendships formed, men and women sent out for kingdom work and lives transformed by the gospel.
We hope you will join us as we continue in our mission to reach Houston for Christ and renew lives by grace.
WORSHIP THAT TRANSFORMS
As human beings, we are created by God to worship God. Our gathered worship on Sunday mornings is the time and place we gather together to glorify God and be transformed by his work. Gathered worship, then, is the highlight of our week and our priority as a church.
EQUIPPING TO LIVE FOR CHRIST
It is the purpose and privilege of the church to make and equip disciples; those who follow Christ by knowing, applying and living the Word of God.
SERVING AS CATALYSTS FOR MISSION
In order to be faithful to God's mission of redemption, we must have an outward face in all that we do and purposefully pursue making disciples through evangelism and service.
Christ the King Presbyterian Church embraces the historic Christian faith as it is revealed in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. Together with Christians throughout the ages we affirm such foundational truths as:
THE INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe the Bible is God's Word, completely trustworthy and without error. It is the ultimate authority for all that we believe and practice in life.
The Bible teaches that one real and personal God exists eternally in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Bible teaches that human beings are created gloriously in the image of their creator to enjoy God and honor him in their entirety. The human race, however, is estranged from its creator through the overwhelming power of sin. Left to ourselves, we would not fulfill the magnificent purpose for which we were created, but instead perish forever.
THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST
God the Son took on human flesh in the person of Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless life, obeying God's law completely, suffered and died on the cross of Calvary, and then was physically raised on the third day. He did all this to accomplish the salvation of his people.
Salvation is received by faith in Jesus Christ alone, not by good works (though good works are evidence of a transformed life).
The church is the people of God from all ages, saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, the head of the church, also called "the body of Christ." Christians join together in local communities or churches to worship their Lord, to grow together in his likeness, and to enjoy serving him together.
These and other truths are affirmed in various statements of faith from the early church, such as the Apostle's Creed and Nicene Creed. We also stand within the rich tradition of the Reformation of the sixteenth century which is anchored in the gospel of grace. The Westminster Confession of Faith is a beautiful expression of the central teachings of the Bible and has served as the doctrinal standard for Presbyterians since the seventeenth century.
God is a God of truth. Therefore, we submit to his Word and are eager to share it with others.
God has lavished us with his grace. Therefore, we are free to be gracious to others.
God’s love knits us together in community. Therefore, we love one another and live in peace.
1 JOHN 4:7-11
1 JOHN 4:7-11
Jesus rules over all things. Therefore, we take bold risks.
Jesus will return to restore all things. Therefore, we worship God and bear one another’s burdens.
