CCI consists of churches from various jurisdictions to be a unified witness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Smith has raised New Testament ministers with the theological and academic foundation for grace ministry, through Theosis Institute, an internationally accredited educational organization, over which He is chancellor. The Institute has as its mission to reclaim the ancient apostolic and patristic vision of the cosmic and universal Lordship of Jesus Christ. It has as its focus academic research and systematic theology with a neo-patristic synthesis, in the particular domain of the development of Christology in the nascent age of the Church, giving a firm foundation to ministers of the gospel in defence of the Faith in a pluralistic world.
