CTK is committed to Jesus' Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20): making, baptizing, and teaching disciples. We hold that all Believers are called to receive discipleship and to also disciple others, because intentional discipleship is vital to the spiritual development and growth of individuals, the church and the community.
To that end, we offer various discipleship courses throughout the year for people of all ages, and our Young Adult courses are available in both English and Portuguese.
To reach Brazilian and Hispanic communities in the US, the CTK Cross -Cultural Apprenticeship Project recruits, equips and empowers ministry apprentices within the current CTK church network to be local leaders, elders and pastors. Once trained in evangelism, discipleship, preaching and Bible study, some will go on to strengthen existing ministries while others will be encouraged to initiate church planting cells in and around greater Boston.
The CTK Cross-Cultural Apprenticeship Project is graciously funded by PCA's Mission to Church American's Antioch Fund.

Christ the King Church Presbyterian Church in Cambridge is a church committed to the vision of church revitalization With the arrival of Pastor Leandro de Almeida Pinheiro in 2014 the church began to understand its role as servant to other immigrant churches, who were once their church plants and are now going through a time of great spiritual and logistical need.
CTK's idea is to nurture a relationship of mutual cooperation between the churches involved in the United for the Kingdom project, which includes four Presbyterian congregations that have joined together under the CTK Presbyterian Church. The aim is to revitalize these churches in order to grow in them a desire to bring together people of all tribes and nations, as multicultural churches.
Church planting is one of the ways in which we are committed to spreading the Gospel, and we partnership with other faith-based organizations, like Mission Light of the Valley, to expand on reach on these projects. Our common goal is transforming lives through the biblical and reformed gospel message from the greater Boston area, to the entire country, until the ends of the earth.
Our first collaborative church planting project with MLV is supporting CTK Philadelphia (CTK Philly), the first Portuguese-language PCA church in Greater Philadelphia. The church is lead by Pastor Diogo (Lead Planter), Pastor Alberto (Assistant Planter), Spencer Ewing (Planter Apprentice).
The CTK Church Planting Center is committed to the gospel renewal of Boston by planting new churches. We believe that the best way to reach the city is by seeing Kingdom communities grow up within the city: neighborhood churches full of people enjoying the benefits and blessings of the gospel, and joyfully sharing the good news with their neighbors.
As a church we understand that the power of the Gospel reaches all spheres of human existence. We are a church that loves the city and we watch over its peace and prosperity (Jeremiah 29: 7). Following in the footsteps of our Master who, in addition to exposing the Truth, promoted the social good and the cultural transformation in His time (Luke 4:18), we also wish to positively impact our community.
The ministry of Urban Missions works under the central objective of the church, and seeks to manifest the glory of God by promoting the good of the city. This goal is achieved by both social and cultural initiatives from our local ministry, as well as in partnership with other organizations such as the Emmanuel Gospel Center (www.egc.org).

Cross-cultural Missions is the area of the Church related to the Great Commission beyond the local Church for the purpose of participating in the preaching and expansion of the Kingdom of God, interacting with other cultures, and supporting the advancement of the Gospel with unreached peoples.
We practice cross-cultural missions by engaging in social work with communities in need, accompanying and investing in missionaries working nationally and internationally, so that everyone has access and can hear the message of the gospel message.
