Why We Exist
"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.
Why does Redeemer Presbyterian Church exist?
We exist to
...Proclaim Christ and Him Crucified
...To live as disciples of Christ
...To make disciples of Christ
Redeemer Exists to Proclaim Christ and Him Crucified:
As the apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:16: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.." The gospel is at the center of all that we do. We believe that Jesus is at the center of all the Scriptures teach. Jesus is at the center of all we do.
To Live as Disciples of Christ:
We believe that the Great Commission of Matthew 28: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" is the primary mission that Jesus gave his church. But we cannot make disciples if we are not first disciples ourselves. We seek to be a church that helps each other in the radical call of discipleship that Christ has put on each of our lives. We pursue deep and meaningful relationships within the church and seek to encourage each other in the faith. "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some." (Hebrews 10:24-25)
To Make Disciples of Christ:
Jesus loves the church. He founded the church. He died for the church. We have been touched by the gospel and long to see others know the peace and love that we have found in Jesus. We believe it is important to put feet to our faith in tangible ways by loving and serving our neighbors, our community, and our world, and we make efforts to do that throughout the year. God created us, called us, and prepared us to do "good works" (Ephesians 2:10), and these good works should be directed to everyone that God puts in our path.
