Newcomers Lunches are designed to give you the opportunity to share a meal with others who are new to Redeemer Church. You’ll also meet our leaders, hear about the vision and mission of Redeemer, and learn about how we function as a church of Missional Communities. Times and dates for newcomers lunches are available on our church calendar.
WHAT IS A REGROUP?
We aspire to a level of fellowship that will never be fully realized in this life. We understand that people are messy, life is messy, and that fellowship here on earth is hard. But we still move forward in pursuit of the example that Christ left us in how he loved his church and the instructions he gave for us to follow. This is why regroups exist, that we might help one another as we all struggle forward in this journey of knowing and believing the gospel of Christ and all of its beautiful implications. By this we hope to spur one another on in our affections for him and the labor of love and good works that inevitably flow out of a life saturated with the love of God.
WHAT IS BAPTISM?
“Baptism” comes from the Greek work baptízō, which means “to submerge, dip under, immerse.” So put simply, baptism is immersing an individual in water and raising them up again from it.
Baptism is a visible symbol of the following:
- Baptism depicts the death and resurrection of Christ.
- Baptism declares cleansing from sin.
- Baptism is a picture of a person’s union with Christ in his death and resurrection.
- Baptism signifies a person’s new life lived to the glory of God.
MEMBERSHIP AT REDEEMER
Becoming a member of Redeemer is simply committing to be a part of the Redeemer church family. It’s saying that these will be my people and that the Lord is my God. We sign a covenant that outlines what that means.
It doesn’t mean that we are always going to agree, because we’re not.
It doesn’t mean that we’re going to fill our schedules with only these people. We’d never have time then for the people around us who don’t know Jesus.
It doesn’t mean that we’re going to stay here forever. People move. Life happens.
It does mean that when life happens, that when disagreements happen, that when things go good, bad, and sideways, that this is our family. We will work stuff out in love and together live for Christ and the hope of seeing all of life redeemed by his life, death, and resurrection.
If you’d like to learn more about becoming a member, you can contact the pastors (link) or email the church (link).
