  • Worship is a natural experience for all people, as we all find things of beauty and value that we give our attention to. As we press into our gospel identity, we are transformed into God worshippers instead of world worshippers, and our greatest joy is found in Christ, and not in the world...


  • Over the last five years at Redemption, God has allowed me to walk alongside many women in the church who were in dark seasons. It was in the moments of walking with those women as they sought after God, even in their suffering, that I experienced Him more deeply than I ever had before. Seeing these women find joy in the hardest circumstances taught me much about the root of joy. I wonder if we can truly experience the fullness of joy outside of community. Fighting for joy looks like asking God each morning to use you...


  • This past Sunday, we looked at how the gospel gives us a new identity. We receive from God an amazing new identity that changes how we respond to God. Check out the sermon summary to learn more...


  • At times, the Old Testament scriptures can seem not only foreign to today’s culture but can also appear harsh or even ruthless. How do we wrestle with that as Christians?

     

    The more we seek God, the more we’ll discover how worthy He is of our lives and how lost we’d be without Him. ..


  • Last Sunday, we started our new series Life of a Disciple and talked about the historical truth of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection and grounding our faith in the real events that happened 2,000 years ago.

     

    The foundation of historical truth will allow us to press into personal change and missional living more fully than if we had not believed the truth and power of Jesus...


  • If you’ve attended Redemption Church for any period of time, you’ve probably heard about our core principles being “Jesus, Scripture, Community, and Mission”.  I’d like to focus on the Community principle for a moment.  Acts Chapter 2 verses 42-47 describes the early church and the fellowship of the believers.  I love the picture it paints of a vibrant community doing more than just meeting together once a week on Sundays, but rather “doing life” together day by day.  I believe this is the perfect example of the community that we are striving for here at Redemption...


  • Just before His ascension, Jesus gave His followers the most unbelievable, and frankly, impossible mission imaginable – to saturate the entire world with His gospel (Acts 1:8). The question that Luke wants to answer throughout the rest of Acts is, “How in the world did that task actually get carried out?” 

     

    Guest Pastor Ben Davey helped us look at this amazing shift in the trajectory of the gospel, to see how God used awful circumstances and ordinary people to overcome unbelievable odds...


  • What do we do, how do we feel when the “fresh start” atmosphere of the new year begins to fade and the reality of the hostile world around us finds its way back in?..


  • Are there limits to our pursuit of knowing Jesus? If we could better know the fullness of Christ’s resurrection by sharing in his sufferings and his death would we still follow Him?
