Statement of faith

We believe: The sixty-six canonical books of the Old and the New Testament to be inspired and the infallible and authoritative Word of God. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming, and His glorious thousand-year rule on earth.

The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. In the identification of the believer with Christ's death and resurrection by immersion baptism.

The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing to the human body in answer to believing prayer. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enable to live a Holy life.

The Church is the fellowship of all who have become children of God through faith in Christ and have been knit together by the Holy Spirit into one body of which the Lord Jesus is the head.

The Church is given the mandate by the Risen Lord Jesus and is under the obligation to demonstrate and proclaim the wholeness of the Gospel and its implications to every people.

History

After 18 years in America, Apostle Dr. P. J. Titus and Mary Titus returned to India to preach the gospel to the unreached. Together they have worked hard over the years to see the vision of God become a reality.

In 1981, Dr. P.J. Titus heeded the call of the Lord to return to his native country of India. Through prayer and the generosity of many likeminded people around the world, the vision of reaching one billion souls for Christ began with the purchase of land in Bheemunipatnam. The COTR College of Ministries and New Testament Church of India were registered and began impacting India. Dr. Titus and his wife, Mary, were also concerned with the plight of lost and orphaned children in India. So, in addition to the church and theological seminary, he established the Nava Jeevan Public School and the New Life Children's Home.

Over the years, Dr. Titus looked to expand the scope of the ministry in order to maximize the impact he could make in reaching the spiritually starved. The ministry campus now incorporates the New Testament Church, COTR Theological Seminary, Nava Jeevan Public School, New Life Children's Home, and Jyothi Hospital.

God placed a heavy burden on the heart of Dr. P.J. Titus for the people of his native land of India. Dr. Titus had a divine vision to serve the needy fellow humans in India. He and his wife Mary left the United States in 1981 and returned to their home country to establish CHRIST FOR INDIA, the Lord's ministry.

All the years of untiring dedication made Dr. Titus an eminent theologian, a missionary, an evangelist, and worldrenowned charismatic orator. He took advantage of every opportunity to preach the gospel to his native people and felt that each native person he trained would then go out and instruct others. He remained focused on his mission to make disciples of one billion people in his native country of India until he entered into his glory in September 2003.When Dr. P. J. Titus was promoted to Glory in 2003, Mrs. Mary Titus then assumed the leadership as cofounder and president in India, and with the help of her family continues to reach India for Christ. The couple's eldest son, Johnson P. Titus, is serving the Lord full-time in the COTR ministry in Visakhapatnam.

In 2011 Mary Titus handed the leadership and title of President in India to Johnson Titus. Their second son, Jameson P. Titus, serves as President of CHRIST FOR INDIA in the United States and represents CHRIST FOR INDIA through out the world. Their daughter, Jyothi supports the ministry from their home in Dallas, Texas.
