Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

Redeemer holds to the Creeds of the Great Tradition: The Apostles’ Creed, The Nicene Creed, The Chalcedonian Creed, and The Athanasian Creed.

A more exhaustive statement of beliefs can be found in Redeemer’s founding principles stated in the church bylaws (available upon request) and the beliefs also found in the 39 Articles of Religion, originally written in the 16th Century during the English Reformation, which was the historic movement of the formation of the Protestant church.

Creeds and historic faith documents are available upon request.


Denomination

Redeemer is not a part of any particular denomination. We are elder governed and staff operated. The senior pastor is mentored and held accountable by a board of ministers from other churches. In addition, an outside council of three to five ministers exists to help resolve issues which the church and Elder Council are unable to resolve.
