What It’s All About

Joseph Rankine - C3 Baptism Pictures 8-15-2010
 I woke up this morning reflecting on all God is doing. I
can’t remember the last time we have seen this many changed lives, salvations
and baptisms in the 12 year history of C3 Church.  

Every time I hear a story of a life that was changed by the
power of God it reminds me what it’s all about.  God is using us to reach people who are far from God, not
just church shoppers or believers from other churches. 

In the past 2 weeks
alone we have baptized 111 people and about 221 so far this year. Let’s be
reminded that those aren’t just numbers but every soul has a story, every
person has a testimony of God’s grace and power at work in their life.  

There are different seasons in church
life, there are seasons or sowing, seasons of reaping, and seasons of harvest.
This is definitely a season where we are seeing the blessings of God as we
impact others for Christ.  Ministry
can be tough, challenging and messy but it is worth it when God uses us to
fulfill his great commission found in Matthew 28:19-20. 

Let’s continue to reach out to those
who are hurting….  Let’s be
church’s that provide REAL hope for REAL people in a REAL world!


  • Matt,
    That’s awesome. I’m sure your have critics like anyone who’s doing something for the Kingdom, but the fruit speaks for itself: lives changed.
    May God continue to bless you and the ministry of C3.
