Our Mission

Redeemer Presbyterian Church is committed to impacting our local and surrounding community and the entire world with the dynamic and transforming good news of Jesus Christ, faithful to the Great Commission He issued to His disciples:

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19–20)

Go and make are the necessary words of action that carry significant meaning for us as we look to serve our congregation as well as the surrounding community through the gifts of grace and salvation that God has given. The words baptize and teach demonstrate the church’s role in calling, cultivating, and shaping disciples, carried out through its ministry of the means of grace: Word, sacraments, and prayer (Acts 2:41–42). By these “outward and ordinary means . . . Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption” (Westminster Shorter Catechism, Q&A 88). In short, God uses these agents—also known as ordinances—for the purposes of salvation, both to convert sinners and to strengthen and encourage the faith of Christian believers. Therefore, Redeemer Presbyterian Church seeks to create an environment in which we obey, submit to, study, expound, evangelize with, and preach the Word of God; practice and promote individual and corporate prayer; and faithfully administer and participate in the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper—visible reminders of Christ’s work of redemption and our union with him.

While our foremost purpose is constituted in what was previously said, Jesus reminds us that His good news extends to works of love that testify to the dynamic transformation that takes place in His disciples through His grace. Again we are reminded of Jesus’s words, which are taken from the Gospel of John:

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34–35

Christians, therefore, testify to the truth of their faith and devotion to their Savior by demonstrating to each other the same type of sacrificial love and humility Jesus Christ exemplified in his life and death on the cross.

Similarly, these acts of love, grace, and mercy flow from outside of the confines of Christ’s church into the world as His disciples attempt to address the temporal needs and suffering of the world—even as we call people from the world to join Christ’s church for the satisfaction of their spiritual needs. Therefore, Redeemer Presbyterian Church participates in, encourages, and seeks opportunity to remedy the temporal needs of our immediate community and beyond in imitation of our heavenly Father and in order to witness to dynamic, transforming love of His Son, Jesus.

We look forward to seeing you and seeing how we can serve you.
