culture & values
C3 Church Queenstown is part of the international Movement of Churches founded by Ps Phil and Christine Pringle.
C3 Church has congregations around the world that are bright, enthusiastic and relevant. Our message is one of faith, hope and love, with a united vision to see people know Jesus, find community and discover their purpose.
When C3 Church Queenstown was established in 2013 Ps Andrew and Alana with the team, further to C3 Global culture, wanted defined values to further explain how we do life as a Church family.
CELEBRATE | We embrace & celebrate life! We enjoy the big moments and delight in the little things. We celebrate with enthusiasm and passion for Jesus as our Lord and Saviour; what He has done, what He is doing & what He will do. We celebrate with open hearts and we are generous people, we love God and we love people, we celebrate each other’s successes, do life together connecting as a family. Jesus loved a party & so do we!
INFLUENCE | We are a Church that adds and multiplies, we grow we lead, we inspire and influence for the better. We actively seek wisdom individually and as a group. We influence with integrity, excellence, honesty, loyalty and faithfulness in our personal lives and the market place. We lead people to: Jesus and the work of the cross; to being filled with & living by the Holy Spirit, our guide & comforter; to prayer and reading the Bible for personal growth & revelation; to Church & being connection into a community of believers, contributing & committed.
FEELS LIKE HOME | Home is a place where you can be yourself - be who God made you to be. Jesus meets you where you’re at and welcomes you with His embrace. We hope you feel a real sense of belonging, the presence of the Holy Spirit and His steadfast, unfailing love. We aim to be inclusive and genuine; we love connecting and doing life well together. We are a family, of all generations, who value, appreciate and encourage each other in all stages of life.
BIGNESS | We have a big God, who has given each of us a great purpose. We believe we all have our part to play in the body of Christ, building the Church & seeing the Kingdom of Heaven established here on Earth. We believe in thinking big, dreaming big, with big vision and big faith, we step out and have faith in our God, who makes the impossible possible. Ephesians 3.20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.
CREATIVE | We have an incredibly creative God, and we are made in His image, each with gifts and talents. We can reflect and express this through being innovative, be it the arts, music, dance, sports, business, in the home, market place and Church. We express with freedom, worship and servant-hood the timeless message of Salvation. We believe God is into doing new things, singing new songs, making a way where there is no way, we explore, express, enjoy, create and cultivate.
ASK SEEK KNOCK | We believe in having an active personal relationship with Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Having questions is good, because God has all the answers and solutions. Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” God gave each of us a body/brain, heart/soul & spirit and we all have the responsibility to engage in prayer, seek the Word of God, by reading the Bible and live in step with the Holy Spirit.
ENCOURAGE | We love God & we love people; we speak well, we use our words and actions to instill courage, build up, honour, energise, boost, refresh and restore. God can use us to bring faith, hope and love into people’s lives and circumstances. We live with the Holy Spirit alive in us, and that means we carry His presence where-ever we go. We have the ability to shift the atmosphere by what we say and how we act. Choose joy and be an encouragement.
