What does it mean to be religious?
Religion is often viewed as irrelevant, out of date and disconnected to modern society. Some would say that being religious is all about following a set of unrealistic rules, or reaching a form of righteousness through strict behavior, or even believing in an unrealistic and impersonal God.
Religion is about behavior modification
Jesus is about a heart transformation
So what is our response to being religious? We say, “Neither are we”.
In fact, we couldn't be further from it. This might sound unusual coming from a church, a place that is traditionally full of religious people.
But it's truth. At C3 Church, we are not religious.
Grace is not a subject
Grace is a person: Jesus
Jesus was never about being religious. He’s always been about relationship.
Jesus is not interested in us earning his approval through behavior modification, or by attempting to fit into a certain religious mold. He is all about us experiencing His love and grace through a personal and genuine relationship. A relationship that is exciting, daring and full of life. Like Jesus, we want people to discover that they belong at C3 Church just as they are and even if they don’t “believe”.
Why don't you come and see for yourself how a church can be not religious.
