SENIOR MINISTERS Mackay
ABOUT THE NEW LEAD PASTORS
Pastors Beaudean and Deneisha have served faithfully as part of the team at C3MKY in various leadership capacities since their teenage years in the late 1990's. They have been married since 2002 and have 3 children.
They love Mackay, love its people and are love seeing others find life in Jesus Christ.
Ps. Beaudean has been on full-time staff at C3MKY since 2007 fulfilling any role required of him in that time, from hospital visits, conducting weddings, conducting funerals, preaching, musician and any day to day running of administration.
Ps. Deneisha for a large part of that time has been a full time mother has also help support with fulfilling key roles in ministry during that time as well, such as pastoral care, preaching and events management.
Pastors John & Rose Gilbank became a part of C3 Church Global in 1988. They faithfully stood the test of time in Mackay serving this congregation for 39 years with 32 of those years as Senior Ministers.
Over a period of 2 years beginning in 2019 they began a transition process stepping out of their role of leading C3 Church Mackay and handing this role on to the next generation. On the 28th of February 2021 this culminated in a celebration of their sacrifices with a Handover Service in which many people attended including dignitaries such as Mayor of Mackay Greg Williamson.
C3 CHURCH GLOBAL
Our movement is committed to healthy relationships and connection between ministers and churches. As an international family our members are able to walk into any of our C3 Churches around the world and know they're home. We are united with Christ in His vision, and therefore our mission, to save the lost, make disciples and build His church.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We live by our convictions, the core values that make us who we are. The Bible is our guide to life, not only because it is good, but because it is true.
There is one God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God; we believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His constant intercession and in His imminent return
In the person and work of the Holy Spirit with His fruits and gifts available in the Church.
The Bible is the living word of God. It is infallible, authoritative and everlasting and is the foundation of all Christian doctrine.
In the existence of an evil spiritual being known as the devil.
In the spiritually lost condition of all people and the essential need for the new birth by faith in Jesus Christ.
In the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a gift available to believers subsequent to the new birth, with normal evidence of speaking in other tongues
In the sacraments of the Lords Supper and baptism by full immersion in water for all believers.
In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting separation from God.
In the church being the body of Christ, and each member being an active part of a local church, fulfilling the Great Commission.
Marriage was instituted by God, ratified by Jesus, and is exclusively between a man and a woman. It is a picture of Christ and his church.
Sex is a gift from God for procreation and unity, and it is only appropriate within and designed for marriage.
