C3 BELONG exists to connect people to God and is made up of people of all ages and nations who share a passion for God, each other and for positively impacting our city and nation. Our services are bright, enthusiastic and relevant and our messages are one of faith, hope and love.

Barry & Linda Farmilo have been the senior pastors of our North Shore Location for over 20 years, since 1997. They have been in pastoral ministry for over 30 years. They have a depth of love and wisdom they bring to our church. In 2019 they launched a second location in North West Auckland. Barry & Linda are the senior pastors over both locations, as well as the campus pastors of our North Shore location.

 our beliefs


There is one God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the living word of God, infallible, authoritative, everlasting and the foundation of all Christian doctrine.

The Lord Jesus Christ: his humanity, deity, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death for the sins of the world, bodily resurrection, ascension to the Father’s right hand, constant intercession, and in His imminent return.

Salvation by faith in and confession of Jesus Christ as Lord because of the spiritually lost condition of all people.

In Water Baptism for all believers by immersion, in the Lord’s supper in remembrance of Christ.

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, a gift available for believers with speaking in tongues. Divine Healing through the atonement of Christ. the Gifts of the Holy Spirit for edification and equipping in ministry, and the fruits of the Holy Spirit for Christian character in believers.

In the existence of an evil spiritual being-the devil. The Church being the body of Christ: and each member being an active part of a local church, fulfilling the great commission.

Bible Prophecy: its fulfillment in world events, heralding the climax of this age and the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

C3 Churches are characterised by a united vision to build the church by connecting people to God, connecting people to people and also empowering people for effective, joyful service.

As members of C3, we have an accountability
structure and apostolic oversight. We are connected to many great churches and pastors. We have access to great leadership training and support.
