Why We Exist
C2C network exists to be a catalyst for multiplication and church planting in North America. Our movement is built on a solid trust and dependence upon the Spirit of God. We pray for workers, for finances, and for the appropriate locations and strategies, and God is answering those prayers!
What is the C2C network?
The C2C network is a mission based network that exists to see North America reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While it is true that many of us in the C2C network are affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren Church, we want to see Gospel Centered, Spirit Led, Mission Focused churches planted across North America, and we recognize that we cannot accomplish this task on our own. Therefore, the C2Cnetwork is unapologetically interdenominational. We are passionate about collaborating with other denominations to train and coach church planters. Together we desire to develop “best practices” in Church Planting in order to accomplish this purpose. For more information regarding the Confession of Faith of the MB Conference, click here.
Gospel Centered means that the person and work of Jesus Christ MUST be at the center in each of our plants. Rather than focusing on some particular cause, we want to focus on a person. That person’s NAME is where salvation is found, so we unapologetically keep the gospel message at the center of our mission, our preaching, our lives, and our strategies.
Being Spirit-Led simply means that we rely totally upon the Spirit of God to call planters into the harvest, to lead us to the locations where He has already chosen to establish His church, and to provide all the resources we need to carry out His work. This IS after all HIS church, so we strive to depend totally upon the leadership of the Holy Spirit, through His Word, His people, and the clarion call of His voice! Prayer saturation is perhaps the key “spiritual strategy” that we see as our part – the rest we rely totally upon Him!
Mission-focused reminds us of the outward “face” the church MUST have if we are going to be faithful to the commission of Jesus Christ. We are a SENT people and are called to live “on mission” for Him.
