BELIEFS & TEACHINGS

WELCOME

These beliefs reflect what we at Redeemer Church regard as the core foundations to biblical Christianity.

THE BIBLE

The Bible was written by men divinely inspired by God. It is authoritative on all subjects on which it touches. We as a church affirm the Chicago Statement of Biblical Inerrancy.

GOD

The God of Scripture is the one, true and living God. God is three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), unique in role and person-hood, yet same in essence and substance. 

HUMANITY

Man was created by God in His image to enjoy Him forever. Yet through the sin of Adam, humanity lost their relationship to the Creator and are in need of a savior. 

SIN

In short, sin is any word, thought or deed that is contrary to God's will, the consequence of which is eternal death.   

SALVATION

God the Son, Jesus, came to earth, becoming truly God and truly man through the virgin birth. Jesus lived a perfectly holy life in complete obedience to God the Father and took our sins upon Himself at the cross, where He took our punishment and died. He then rose again three days later confirming what He accomplished on the cross. Salvation comes only by the grace of God and through placing your faith in the life, death on the cross and ressurection of Jesus and repenting (turning away) of your sins. Your sins will then be forgiven, be indwelled by the Holy Spirit, and granted eternal life as an adopted son or daughter of God. 

THE CHURCH

The church is not a building. The church is both local and universal. A local church is made of a local body of believers who gather together for worship, preaching of the Word, and participating in Communion. The universal church is the shared fellowship that all Christians around the world share with one another. 

CONSUMMATION

Jesus is coming again to judge the living and the dead and to fully establish His kingdom on earth.

THEOLOGICAL DISTINCTIONS

While the previous beliefs are the foundations to Christianity, these further reflect our theological distinctions.

We are currently working on our Statement of Faith. In the meantime, to learn more about our Beliefs and Teachings, read the 1689 London Baptist Confession.

REFORMED

We believe in the loving and just sovereignty of God in all areas of life including creation, salvation, and sanctification.

(Col. 1:16-17, Job 42:2, Acts 4:27-28, Eph. 1:4)
