Making more and better followers of Jesus Christ.
C3 people are empowered and equipped to pursue a personal relationship with God, connect with each other, and influence people far from God to follow Him.

At C3 we are excited about our growth and are often asked what it means to be a member.
A local church is a family of dedicated believers who are dedicated to growing in Christ and inviting others to follow him.
It is not a club or an association. Rather than passing a class or receiving a certificate, there are six foundations a C3 member does in order to have an active influence and a personal witness.
Six Foundations for Becoming a Better Follower of Jesus at C3
- We are PRESENT every Sunday we are in town (Growth & Connection)
- We fully PARTICIPATE in Group Life each Season (Growth & Community)
- We regularly commit to READ and APPLY GOD’S WORD to our daily life (Growth & Life Application)
- We GIVE a regular tithe in a God-honoring way (Sacrificial Giving)
- We SERVE in a ministry where we are needed and passionate (Servant Ministry)
- We regularly PRAY for and INVITE others to C3 to experience the gospel and grow (Witness)
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word Of God, the final authority for guidance [doctrine], admonition [reproof], modification [correction], and instruction [training] to live healthy and right.
We believe in one God, existing eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully man and fully God, the Father’s one and only Son. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He suffered during the governance of Pontius Pilate, was crucified, buried and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.
We believe the Holy Spirit carries out this work of daily and active renewal in our lives, empowering us to grow in loving union and power with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will. A person receives the indwelling of the Holy Spirit at salvation and the power of the Holy Spirit as much as an individual accepts throughout their lifetime.
We believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord frees us from the mastery of sin, and its consequences of death and eternal separation. Jesus assumed the penalty of death Himself, and enables us to live out of His resurrected life into eternity. Following Jesus as Lord is the purpose of every believer and is of greater importance than simply accepting His payment as a means of “getting into” heaven or believing He exists.
We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is formed of all those who know Him as their Savior and Lord, regardless of denominational preferences or distinctives, and that every follower of Jesus is purposed to directly participate in the life of a local and regularly gathered body of believers.
We believe prayer is the means of communicating with God, who hears and honors the prayers of his people. In prayer there is power for spiritual life and peace, for strength and physical healing, for change and life transformation, and for encouraging confidence of faith.
