Who We Are

The Lord placed it in the heart of Tyrone and Lisa Jones in March of 1993 to plant a church that will focus on the simple truths of the Word and that build healthy disciples. Tyrone was leading a bible study that was not associated with his home church that gathered people who were young in faith and were searching for houses of worship. At his home church, Tyrone had recently resigned as youth minister. After a season of prayer and initial direction, CTC was launched on July 4, 1993.

The first 9 months of the church's existence was held in a building off of Avenue B and Eighth Street. In April 1994 CTC moved to a vacant church building on 14th Avenue and 5th Street; this sufficed for 8 months. In November 1994 CTC was located in the Alarcon Center on 3E, directly across the street from the MCAS Main Gate, which was suitable until July 1995 when we moved into a metal shed across the street. The work that was required was not completed until January 1996. In the meantime, Rev. Tom Phillips and the vestry of St. Paul's Episcopal Church graciously allowed us to use their sanctuary for our services.

In 2003 CTC was blessed with 10 acres of a 20 acre parcel on County 13, between Ave 3E and 4E. The building has just been completed and our first corporate service was held on August 20,2007. The facility is a 24,000 square feet 2 story building that will house sanctuary attendance of 600. The building is also designed to expand to 1,200 with accommodations for a school, missions training center, and Bible college.
