The vision of Redeemer Community Church is best understood in answer to a few questions: What is Redeemer trying to do? How does Redeemer seek to do this? and How does Redeemer know when it's successful? Take a look below—we hopes it's clear and compelling!
What is Redeemer trying to do?
Taking our cue from Jesus' call to His disciples, "Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men," our mission is to empower people to follow Jesus and help others do the same.
How does Redeemer seek to do this?
At the broadest level our strategy is Gather Together, Get Trained, and Go Tell.
We Gather Together on Sunday mornings for our Worship Gatherings. We worship God through song, hear the Word of God preached, pray and fellowship together, celebrate Communion once a month, and more.
Then, we offer opportunities to Get Trained. In order to help people of all ages follow Jesus and help others do the same we offer a number of opportunities: Kids Ministry, Student Ministry, Community Groups, Men's and Women's Ministries, and sometimes the Get Trained Institute.
Finally, our strategy wouldn't be complete without our Go Tell initiatives. We Gather Together, we Get Trained, and then we Go Tell. We encourage people to live with great Gospel intentionality in their neighborhood, in Redeemer's neighborhood, and everywhere else God takes them.
In fact this entire strategy is aimed at one very crazy goal—to give every man, woman, and child within Redeemer's "circle of accountability" the repeated opportunity to see, hear, and respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
How does Redeemer know when it's successful?
We believe we're making good progress whenever more and more of our people are growing in the following five areas of spiritul maturity:
- Intimacy with God—rooted in the gospel, through His Word and prayer on a daily basis
- Fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—in all of their personal relationships and circumstances
- Spiritual Gift(s)—for the good of others in all of life (not just inside the walls of our church)
- Grace Story—into various conversations as opportunities arise
- Stewardship of Life—looking to God to steward all He's entrusted to us for His glory and His Gospel
