Ripley's C3 Mission:
Connect with Christ - We view it as our highest priority to assist people in making a connection with God - a saving relationship.
Connect in Community - God did not design us to be independent but interdependent. We need each other. We strive to connect people in meaningful relationships.
Connect by Caring - Maturity is evidence by a heart willing to serve others. We strive to connect people in serving relationships.
Why we do what we do.
IMAGINE a ragtag collection of surrendered and transformed people who love God and others.
They are mesmerized by the idea that this is not about THEM, but all about Jesus.
They are transfixed by His story and His heart for others.
They are seedthrowers and firestarters, hope peddlers and grace-givers, risktakers and dreamers, young and old.
They link arms with others in the family of faith.
They empower the poor, strengthen the weak, embrace the outcast, seek the lost.
They serve together, play together, worship together, live life together.
They are us!
