Redemption Bible Church lives to glorify God by creating a family of maturing followers of Jesus Christ through worshiping together, equipping one another, and blessing our communities.
Worship: Worship is for an audience of one — God. (John 4:23 – 24)
Our worshiping community focuses on lifting up the name of Jesus Christ to the glory of God the Father through the Holy Spirit.
Equip: Ministry is for every follower of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:4 – 26; Eph. 4:11 – 16)
Every Christian is a minister, fully empowered by the Holy Spirit as an instrument of Christ. The Spirit unites all believers into one living community and gifts each member with spiritual “tools” to build up one another in the faith. Only by sharing in one another’s life and working together can we grow individually and corporately.
Bless: Christ’s Church is to be a beneficial presence to all. (Gal. 6:9 – 10; 1 Peter 2:12)
Every Christian is a minister, fully empowered by the Holy Spirit as an ambassador of Christ. One of the marks of a disciple is living as a beneficial presence in the surrounding community. Serving non-believers builds a platform for sharing the gospel and inviting others to join the family of faith. We want to bless our local community through service and evangelism, and bless our global communities through establishing and strengthening other churches.
Worship…Equip…Bless. These are three key marks of a disciple. A disciple is one who worships our Lord in spirit and in truth, one who is equipped and equips others for the work of ministry, and one who blesses their community through evangelism and service.
This is our process. We want to train disciples to worship; we want to equip and guide them in blessing their communities.
This is our guide. Whatever we do has to fit in one of these categories: Is it worship? Does it equip? Does it bless the community?
We want everyone who walks in our doors to immediately understand what we’re about. We want everyone who walks in our doors to know where they are in this process. Is worship a part of their life? Are they equipped for ministry? Do they bless the community God has given them?
