Who Are We?

Redeemer is a spiritual haven for those looking to find a warm and comfortable place where they can worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Redeemer has always been a place where people put down roots. Where they come to raise families, and where generations of families stay in membership.  We are a loving, friendly and accepting community where you can come and celebrate the love of Christ.  It is through His love that we become one community and it is through His sacrifice that we become whole again.  When you enter our doors you will find that His arms are open awaiting you — and so are ours.

OUR MISSION

Lutheran Church of the Redeemer is a loving family of believers,

  • who seek to fulfill the Great Commandment through worship, fellowship, and study;
  • who love Christ and one another; and
  • who live the Great Commission by bringing the love of Jesus to others.

The scriptural basis for our mission is:

  • Matthew 22:37-40  – Jesus’ Great Command to love God and others.
  • Matthew 28:18-20  – Jesus’ Great Commission to make disciples of all nations.

OUR GOALS

  • God has blessed us with a congregation recognized for having strong children’s and youth ministries. Let us continue to grow those family ministries as the cornerstone of our mission.
  • God has blessed us with faith, talent and resources so that we may be His instruments in adding souls to His kingdom. Through the Holy Spirit, let us sustain our present worship attendance growth rate every year going forward.
  • God has delivered visitors to our door. With His continued guidance, let us follow-up with all visitors until they are churched or they express the wish that we no longer minister to them.
  • God has blessed us with new members. Let us assure that all new members become a part of the larger Redeemer family by encouraging their involvement in any of many church activities.
  • God has directed us in the Great Commandment to love one another. Let us provide the opportunity for spiritual growth among all of our members, so that we express our love and support in service to each other.
  • God has commanded us through the Great Commission to carry out His work. Let us become involved in outreach ministries using our God-given gifts and abilities to both strengthen and grow God’s Kingdom.
