Whilst C3 Fremantle is part of a movement of churches, we still maintain autonomy. As a part of this autonomy C3 Fremantle has its own Board.

C3 Board Members are: Nigel Surman, Barry Barnard, Greg Moore, Richard Wilkinson, and Katherine Westerside.
Our Story, Our Future
In 1996 with the blessing of C3 Church Hepburn Heights, a group of 14 people set off to establish a new church in the Fremantle area. Nearly twenty years later as the church grew, facilities were purchased resulting in a thriving, multicultural church.
Not stopping there a Charity and Community Centre were also established and Churches and aid projects began overseas.
Looking into the future C3 Church Fremantle recognise more Churches are needed to accommodate people living in the newer suburbs of Perth. A campus commenced in the Wellard area in April 2016 with another to follow in the south eastern suburbs of Perth in 2020.
Jesus gave His church a simple vision and that is to love God, each other and the community (Matthew 22:37). It’s powerful yet simple; people matter to God and they matter to us.
That’s what we aim for at C3 Church Fremantle; everything we do from our church services, connect groups, charitable works and overseas aid all flows from a vision to demonstrate God’s love.
We want people to feel accepted and loved at C3 Church Fremantle.
What We Believe
- 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 vicarious 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 to the Church.
- The Bible is the living word of God, infallible, authoritative and everlasting and the foundation of all Christian doctrine;
- In the existence of an evil spiritual being, 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 the normal evidence of speaking in other tongues;
- In the sacraments of the Lord’s 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.
