We’re people like YOU! We have questions. We wonder about life and faith. We hope our lives will really count for something and make a lasting difference. We are excited about God, excited about our life together, and excited about being part of the greatest thing happening in the whole world… the Kingdom of God.
We’re also a church body who embraces the diversity of culture and race in our community. The Bible tells us there will be a great multitude in heaven that no one can number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing together before the throne of God. We have a tremendous heart for wanting to reflect that description of heaven right here, right now in our community! There’s currently 15+ countries represented in our church family and that makes for a joyful, unique blend of worshiping our God together. And… our international potluck dinners are unmatched!
Redeemer is part of a larger group of Christians known as the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (referred to as ECO). ECO’s mission is to build flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ. ECO churches are unique in that they are led not only by pastors and ministry staff, but by also by an elected body of Elders who represent the congregation. We sometimes call them The Session—old Scottish term that refers to the fact that when the Elders are meeting they’re in “session.” Together, our Elders, Pastor and Staff seek to lead according to their best sense of what God’s will is for and through the church. It’s not a perfect system, but it works well to make sure that no one person calls all the shots and the responsibility of leadership is shared.
