Christ to India (CTI) is a network of Christian churches launched out of the evangelizing work of Grace Bible Church India (GBCI). GBCI, established in 1953, is located in Tenali, a medium-sized city of approximately 165,000 people in southeastern India, in the state of Andhra Pradesh. This region of India is estimated to be approximately 91% Hindu, 7% Muslim and 1% Christian. As GBCI began to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with their Hindu and Muslim neighbors, many small churches were established in villages and rural areas in and around Tenali. As these churches grew they began meeting the needs of their new Christian brothers and sisters including seen ministries to orphans, widows, lepers.
CREEKSIDE BIBLE SUPPORT
Creekside has partnered with CTI in response to the call for the church to help our brothers and sisters in Christ all around the world, partnering with and supporting churches beyond our local assembly (2 Corinthians 8-9). This partnership’s focus is on pastoral training and financial support of CTI’s pastors and the ministries of their churches.
