God is our centre. Our services are alight with his holy spirit and coloured by the brilliance of who he is. Our gathering creates a space for others to come and find relationship with Jesus too.
We are a gathering of all people. We are not selective, nor do we discriminate. It is not about what we look like or what we do but who we follow. Connected through authentic relationships we are not alone; we lift one another up in life, faith and prayer.
We believe wholeheartedly that God has a plan and purpose for every life. Our prayer is that people would be released both locally and globally to be truly who they are: in creativity, in vocation and in community.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
THERE IS ONE GOD: GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.
IN THE DEITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD; WE BELIEVE IN HIS VIRGIN BIRTH, IN HIS SINLESS LIFE, IN HIS MIRACLES, IN HIS VICTORIOUS & ATONING DEATH, IN HIS BODILY RESURRECTION, IN HIS ASCENSION TO THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER, HIS CONSTANT INTERCESSION & IN HIS IMMINENT RETURN.
IN THE PERSON & WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH HIS FRUITS & GIFTS AVAILABLE IN THE CHURCH; THE BIBLE IS THE LIVING WORD OF GOD – INFALLIBLE, AUTHORITATIVE & EVERLASTING, & THE FOUNDATION OF ALL CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE
IN THE EXISTENCE OF AN EVIL SPIRITUAL BEING – THE DEVIL
IN THE SPIRITUALLY LOST CONDITION OF ALL PEOPLE & THE ESSENTIAL NEED FOR THE ‘NEW BIRTH’ BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST
IN THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AS A GIFT AVAILABLE TO BELIEVERS SUBSEQUENT TO THE NEW BIRTH, WITH NORMAL EVIDENCE OF SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES
IN THE SACRAMENTS OF THE LORD’S SUPPER AND BAPTISM BY FULL IMMERSION IN WATER FOR ALL BELIEVERS
IN THE RESURRECTION OF BOTH THE SAVED & THE LOST, THE ONE TO EVERLASTING LIFE AND THE OTHER TO EVERLASTING SEPARATION FROM GOD
IN THE CHURCH BEING THE BODY OF CHRIST, & EACH MEMBER BEING AN ACTIVE PART OF A LOCAL CHURCH, FULFILLING THE GREAT COMMISSION.
Our movement is committed to healthy relationships and connection between ministers and churches. As an international family our members are able to walk into any of our C3 Churches around the world and know they're home. We are united with Christ in His vision, and therefore our mission, to save the lost, make disciples and build His church.
With a passion for Jesus and desire to see this world won for Christ, Phil and Chris Pringle came to Sydney in 1980 to start a church. With just 12 people attending an Easter service, Christian Centre Northside began and the C3 Church movement as we now know was birthed. This church grew to over 400 in 4 years and soon began planting within Sydney and beyond to cities and countries outside of Australia.
With over 400 churches in 64 countries, we are rapidly moving towards the 2020 Vision of 1,000 churches with an average membership of 500 people planted by the year 2020.
