Redeemer was born out of a vision – to see the transformation of lives, relationships, and the very city itself flourish through the redemptive love of Jesus Christ.
Of course, this vision needed a people, a local church family, to pour themselves into the very fabric of the Midtown/Downtown community: socially, culturally, economically, and spiritually. In a place where belief in Christ is often unintelligible, Redeemer desired to be a people who showed their neighbors what the full life of Christ could look like here and now.
Since our launch 2006, Redeemer has been faithful to this vision. Whether we were meeting in the Church Health Center, or the auditorium at Snowden School, or our current home on Cooper Street, we have seen God bring people from all steps of faith and doubt. Over many hours of music and prayer, laughter and tears, conversation and food; we have seen God grow a handful of people into a whole congregation who gather regularly to dream about God’s promise to make all things new – even us.
