Mission: The Mission of Redeemer is to know God and to make him known. This mission centers on the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, the One exalted far above all principality and power, who leads, rules, defends, and expands his kingdom—the church. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He is the answer to the longing of every human heart. He is gathering adults, together with their children, to follow him in discipleship, to live out their baptism, and to walk in obedience following their Lord. We gladly take up our commission, as the Lord Jesus commanded, “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)
The work of the church, in fellowship with and obedience to Christ, is divine worship (upward), mutual edification (inward), and gospel witness (outward). The means appointed by Christ through which the church does this work include the confession of the name of Christ before men; the exercise of fellowship in encouraging one another; the reading, teaching, and preaching of the Word of God; praying; singing; fasting; administering baptism and the Lord’s Supper; collecting and distributing offerings; showing mercy; exercising discipline; and blessing the people.
The regular life of the church centers on Lord’s Day worship. We preach the whole counsel of God through expository sermons, and we participate in the administration of the sacraments. Life in the church, however, also takes place outside of regular worship. Thus members and friends of Redeemer gather for Bible studies, fellowship groups, prayer meetings, youth group, and other activities.
