who we are

about C3 Imagine

We are a church committed to the expression of faith, hope and love. Faith toward an incredible God, hope based on an eternity that changes our perspective on how we live our lives, and the rich love of God towards us, enabling us to love others and build the community we call Church.

C3 Imagine is a community that reflects the international flavour of Amsterdam and Almere. A community expressed through Groups and services that meet right across the cities and their suburbs. We are one church in multiple locations.

We currently have locations in Amsterdam Zuidoost, Amsterdam City centre and in Almere. Together we are one church; with a desire to have a Group in every neighbourhood, our dream is to see hope brought to every street of Amsterdam and Almere and their surrounding suburbs.

As part of the C3 Church global family, we are committed to planting new churches and locations. We have planted churches in Arnhem, The Hague and London.


Hospitality – We are committed to showing the ‘big hug’ of hospitality. We do everything we can, to make others feel like VIPs. We do this when we invite people over to our home, and in our gatherings, and allow everything we do to feel like home.

Faith – We never do things by halves, when it can be done full of faith. We are people of double passion, believing for the best and believing for the impossible – to achieve the vision and purpose God has given to us.

Presence of God – We ensure everyone is lifted higher and taken further by the transforming power of the presence of God – especially through an atmosphere of worship and prayer.

Discipleship – We do all we can to help others grow in their commitment to follow Jesus, through a culture of leadership and discipleship.

Freedom – We bring life and freedom into every bit of church life. So God style freedom in every area of our lives. That creates space for fun, joy and laughter! We are relevant to our generation and communities.


We currently have two locations in Amsterdam and one in Almere. Together we are one church, yet each location has its own flavor. In the future we hope to expand to other cities in the region. Increasing our services and locations will increase the opportunity to transform people in Christ and empower them for purpose.
