"Love, Not only in words or in speech, but in action and in truth." John 3:18
C4 is a non-partisan, 501(c)3 organization based in New York City that engages in environmental stewardship through prayer, discussion and climate activism.
Our mission is to promote dialogue within the Christian community that drives awareness about climate change and moves people to action.
At C4, we believe that caring for creation and our neighbors' home—the earth—is a vital part of our gospel witness. Though grounded in scripture, this call to care for all living things has consistently been overlooked within Christian communities.
Genesis 2:15 states that "the Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it." Yet, collective sin and greed have overshadowed our call to procure justice, reaping enormous consequences for our planet and people all over the world.
At C4, we understand that climate change threatens everyone, especially the lives of the poor and the marginalized—those whom Jesus commands us to love. With so much unprecedented environmental destruction, there is no greater time than now to act, and at the same time no greater hope than that which Jesus and His resurrection provides us.
This is the hope that inspires us despite the unprecedented challenges of our time as we too, like David, seek to serve God's purpose in our own generation (Acts 13:36). Together, we work to inspire Christian communities to live out the full picture restoration and reconciliation—one that includes the renewal and fruition of creation, people and kingdom...on earth as in heaven.
