Welcome to Chicagoland Community Church (C3)
We consider it a blessing to even “meet” you online, though we hope to have the honor of getting to know you in person sometime soon. C3 is a growing network of people committed to becoming more like Jesus, and helping others discover and follow him. Are you interested in discovering Jesus for yourself? Are you interested in learning what his revolution looks like for the lives of contemporary urbanites? Are you interested in finding ways to celebrate what he has done for you by serving others? If you answered yes to any of these questions, C3 is certainly a community of faith that you are going to want check out.
C3 is not a church for those who think they have things all figured out. We are not a church for those who make it a hobby to judge others. We are not a church for people who are just looking for an excuse for the status quo. We are not a church for those who have arrived. If you are not, to use Brennan Manning’s term, a “ragamuffin” who realizes your profound need of Jesus’ grace throughout your entire journey then you probably are not going to be comfortable attending this church.
C3 is a church for those who are beginning to wonder if what they really want is something quite different in their lives. We are a church for those who want to experience authentic Christian community right in the center of the north side of the city of Chicago. We are a church for those who sincerely hope to change the world, but know that first they need God to start changing their lives. We are a church for the broken, for the confused, and for the curious. We are a church for those who are alright with relating to someone different than themselves. We are a church for those who what to get to know the real Jesus of Nazareth, and not some pathetic caricature fabricated by the self-designated experts.
So we encourage you to drop any pretenses, give up on trying to measure up, and simply come as you are. You will meet Jesus here as he really is.
