C3 is a community of individuals who are unified by the teachings of Jesus Christ and who are about serving the triangle area of North Carolina. The vision we carry is to provide real hope for real people in a real world. We do this by exposing the life-giving gospel, equipping people to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, and giving them the opportunity to experience ministry by using their own gifts and talents.
As a church we have essential beliefs that give us unity. In the non-essentials, we have liberty. But above all, and through all of our beliefs, we show love. Here are the essentials:
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; we further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
We believe the Bible is God’s infallible and authoritative word that was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
We believe it is important to uphold the scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of Communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ.
