Our Vision:

What we believe God is calling us to be

Redeemer strives to be a Christ-centered, spirit-filled, inter-generational community devoted to growing in faith, love and service to God, where everyone is welcome--regardless of faith background, social status, economic class, age, sexual orientation, ability, color or culture--to join fellow travelers in the journey of faith and life, to enter into meaningful, supportive relationships and to worship God with passion and love.

Core Values:

Guidance as we pursue our mission

Christianity is a growing experience. In order to experience transformation, we are called to move from spiritual infancy to spiritual maturity (Philippians 3:13-14, Ephesians 4:12-14). Therefore, we seek opportunities for learning and spiritual growth. Small groups are a great way for this to happen (Acts 2:42-47). As we grow in faith, we turn our hearts to God, giving of ourselves and our resources freely and cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Scripture is our foundation for spiritual growth. We, as Lutherans, believe that scripture is the inspired, living Word of God, intended for equipping us for a life of service to God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Growing deeper in our understanding of the Bible is the key to faith formation and authentic Christian living (Psalm 119:105).

Prayer opens us to the transforming power of God's love. Prayer invites us into intimate communication with God (Luke 11:1-4) and enables God to communicate directly with us. It is also a primary means of supporting one another (James 5:13-16).

Relationships are essential to Christian life. Jesus loves us and as his followers, we are called to share that love with one another (John 15:12-17) and with our neighbors (Luke 10:25-28) and even with our enemies (Matthew 5:43-48). At Redeemer, people of all ages and life stages are valued and cared for.

Service to others is our calling. Jesus teaches the way of the servant (John 13:3-17) and reminds disciples often that they are called to a life of service (Mark 9:33-35).  He calls us to live fruitful lives (John 15:5, 16-17). We are called to serve one another within the Christian community and to serve others in need (Luke 10:27-37).

Being Lutheran is an asset. Martin Luther's theology helped us to see the incredible power of God's grace. That message is a gift that the world desperately needs to hear. (Romans 5:1-11).
