Redemption Church's Values:

Within our commitment to the foundational truths of historical, orthodox Christianity, we at Redemption have certain Biblical values that may set us apart from other churches. These values may set us apart in teaching, although hopefully not in spirit, from some of our other brothers and sisters in the Universal Body of Christ, and will impact our body's practical life in what ministries and programs we pursue within our local context.

  • biblical authority

    We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is our ultimate authority for life and ministry.  God’s Words are the very words of life that clearly communicate His desire for us and his design for human life, so that we may flourish in our relationship with Him. 

    • 2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Psalm 119:89
  • gospel centrality

    The Gospel isn’t just the message that saves us, but the hope that sustains us as we continue to walk in God’s good grace. Keeping the Gospel central to our lives, teaching, and ministry, protects us from falling into performance-based religion and from a lifestyle of sin. The gospel tells us we are loved by God, and compels us to joyfully live for God and his glory. 

    • 1 Corinthians 15:1-6, Ephesians 1:13-14
  • generational legacy

    We will joyfully embrace God’s mandate to invest spiritually into the next generation. We will focus our energy on discipling followers of Jesus to embrace biblical priorities, biblical parenting, biblical manhood and womanhood, and biblical marriages that reflect God’s good design. Our desire is to equip each individual and family to see the gospel have generational impact, faithfully passing on the good deposit that has been entrusted to us.

    • 2 Timothy 1:13-14, 2:2, Deuteronomy 6:5-9
  • joyful generosity

    We will generously give our lives away by joyfully giving of our time, treasures, talents and testimony for the glory of God and the good of others.

    • Malachi 3:8-10, Romans 8:32, Hebrews 12:2, 2 Corinthians 9:6-8, 1 Timothy 6:17-19
  • intentional simplicity

    We will fight to maintain a simple, but focused, schedule and ministry framework in order to enable each person to focus on those things which are most important: following Jesus and fishing for men. We will strive to maintain a simple and pure devotion to Christ!

    • 2 Corinthians 1:12, 11:3
  • humble unity

    We value the God-given diversity of each individual who calls Redemption Church home. Our aim is to love one another selflessly and to diligently protect the unity of Redemption Church; in order to display the power of the gospel and allow us to accomplish more and be stronger together than we are apart.

    • Philippians 2:2, 1 Peter 5, Ephesians 4:3, John 17:20-21
  • prayerful dependency

    Prayerful Dependency The Lord Jesus both modeled and taught how to be dependent upon God through prayer. Many times it is recorded that Jesus woke early to pray and to simply be with the Father. We will strive to be a church that is dependent on God to move in our lives and the lives of those in our church family and community.

    • Mark 1:35, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Philippians 4:6-7
