"And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
Redeemer Presbyterian Church exists to proclaim Christ and Him crucified, to live as disciples of Christ, and to make disciples of Christ.
The vision for Redeemer Presbyterian Church began with a small group of people who deeply desired a biblically and historically faithful church committed to the Reformed perspective. Through much prayer and perseverance, and under the care of Covenant Presbyterian Church of Holland, Michigan, our first Sunday morning worship service took place on July 4, 2004.
On April 24, 2005, Redeemer Presbyterian Church officially became a “particular church” of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The PCA began in 1973, breaking away from the mainline Presbyterian Church (PC USA) over issues such as the authority of Scripture in an effort to champion the biblical and confessional doctrines of the historic Reformed faith. Now over 40 years old, the PCA has maintained its original convictions and commitment to both Scripture and the Westminster Standards. Now with over 3200 congregations, the PCA is one of the fastest-growing denominations in the country.
About Redeemer Presbyterian Church
Welcome to Redeemer Presbyterian Church, in the heart of Traverse City. Among the faithful churches in this beautiful city, we stand firm on our commitment to expository Bible teaching, ensuring that God's Word is explained and applied faithfully in all its depth and richness.
Our Foundation: Expository Bible Teaching
At the core of our ministry is expository Bible teaching. This means we prioritize understanding the Bible in its context, exploring each passage thoroughly, and then drawing out its meaning and implications for our lives today. Every sermon is crafted with care, ensuring that God's Word is communicated with clarity and passion.
Our Worship: Tradition and Reverence
We invite you to learn more about our historic liturgy on our worship service page. Rooted in the traditions of the Presbyterian church, our primary goal is faithfulness to scripture.
