Our Mission

Our mission is to connect ALL people to the life-giving message of Jesus as we experience Godfind freedomdiscover purpose, and make a difference in the world.


Our Vision

The vision of CtK rests on three pillars that God gave this church when it was developed.


That this church would look like heaven in its ethnic and socioeconomic diversity and in its deeds of love in the world.


That people would experience Jesus in such a way that their lives are changed like those in the Bible.

Life Giving

That people far from God may come to know God’s great love for them.

What are CtK services like?

The 8:30am service is a traditional service and is held in Auditorium 2. Please know, there are no classes for children at the 8:30am service. Children are always welcome to join their parents at this service.

The 9:30am and 11am services are contemporary services and they are held in Auditorium 1. There are classes available for children from 6 weeks old through 5th grade at both services. CRUX is held Sundays at 6:15-8:00PM in Auditorium 2.

Where is CtK located?

We are located at 13501 South Tryon St. Charlotte, NC 28278

What if I have children?

We recommend you park in the side parking lot and enter through the side doors when you arrive. Volunteers from our Guest Experience Team will be at the doors to greet you and can direct you to the Check-In Stations to get your kids checked into their CtK Kids classroom with one of our helpful Check-In Volunteers. They will then show you to your child’s classroom and then show you to Auditorium 1.

What if I don’t have children?

After parking in any available spot, our helpful volunteers on the Guest Experience Team will help guide you to Auditorium 1 no matter which entrance you come to. Let them know you are here for the first time and they will bring you right to the Information table in the Main Foyer.

What time should I arrive?

You should plan to arrive about 10-15 minutes before service begins. That will allow you to get your children checked in to their classrooms and you to grab a cup of coffee from the CtK Coffee Bar, stop by the information table to fill out a connection card and pick up the really cool gift we have for you there.

Wait! I have more questions!
