Greetings! Welcome to the webpage of Redeemer Presbyterian Church. We hope the information and resources are of help to you in learning more about our church. We would love for you to come to visit with us. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I would love to meet you over coffee to answer any questions you may have and to pray with you. You can find our contact information here. We are so glad you are exploring our church and look forward to meeting you in person.

Sunday Morning Worship
Sunday Evening Worship
Have questions? We have the answers!
Our schedule each Lord’s Day is Morning Worship - 9:30am. Sunday School - 11:10am. Evening Worship- 5:30pm. Our address is 22 S. Fairfield Rd., Beavercreek, OH 45440. We also have a midweek prayer time and study on Wednesdays at 6:30pm.
As you enter the door you will be greeted and handed a bulletin for worship. You will also find a brochure about the Orthodox Presbyterian Church as well as other literature and information. Feel free to take and browse through these items as well as engage any of our members or regular visitors in conversation. Our worship begins at 9:30am and 5:30pm. We prepare our hearts beforehand as the piano plays. Stay for coffee and refreshments after the morning service.
Few sounds are as pleasant as the sound of children in God’s house. If you have young ones, you are always welcomed and encouraged to have them worship with you in the service. They are no disturbance to us, but a joy. For your own convenience and comfort there is a nursery located off the lower-level hallway.
Absolutely. The Church is a worshipping community, part of the body of Christ. What we are doing as his people is reverently approaching him in worship. At the same time, we are delighted to have those who do not know Christ come and visit with us. You will hear the wonderful words of life, and we hope it will help you to think carefully about ultimate issues.
Our worship is traditional in nature, so you can easily see when to stand and sit simply by following the lead of the congregation. The pastor will usually say “please stand,” or “you may be seated.” The bulletin is also marked with an asterisk (*) where the congregation is asked to stand during the service, if able.
If you’ve visited and have decided that you would like to join with us, please let Pastor Arendale know. We have a new member’s class you can take to learn more. The purpose of this class is to introduce you to every facet of our church’s faith and life, giving you an opportunity to know us better and ask questions along the way. Requirements for church membership are simple, yet important.
Certainly! It isn’t necessary that the members of the church adopt the Westminster Confession as their own. What is necessary is that one has a sincere profession of faith in Christ. When someone joins the church, here are the five things they need to agree with – the vows they will make before the congregation, answering in the affirmative these five questions:
- Do you believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the Word of God, and its doctrine of salvation to be the perfect and only true doctrine of salvation?
- Do you believe in one living and true God, in whom eternally there are three distinct persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—who are the same in being and equal in power and glory, and that Jesus Christ is God the Son, come in the flesh?
- Do you confess that because of your sinfulness you abhor and humble yourself before God, that you repent of your sin, and that you trust for salvation not in yourself but in Jesus Christ alone?
- Do you acknowledge Jesus Christ as your sovereign Lord, and do you promise that, in reliance on the grace of God, you will serve him with all that is in you, forsake the world, resist the devil, put to death your sinful deeds and desires, and lead a godly life?
- Do you promise to participate faithfully in this church’s worship and service, to submit in the Lord to its government, and to heed its discipline, even in case you should be found delinquent in doctrine or life?
When the offering plate is passed, don’t feel any pressure to put anything in it. We do teach the biblical principle of giving for believers as part of being good stewards of what God has given us.
If you have made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ and are a member in good standing of an evangelical, Bible believing church, and have a clear conscience before God, you are welcome to partake of the Lord’s Supper.
You’ll probably want to bring your Bible! And if you forget that, we’ll have an extra copy in the pew. As the pastor preaches, you’re encouraged to turn to the passage he is preaching on and other passages that he will cross-reference.
We are a reverent, traditional church. We sing hymns and psalms and recite creeds and confessions. The worship service lasts about one hour and fifteen minutes. Music consists of piano and organ accompaniment. Expect to hear expository preaching from the Bible.
