Our Vision

 
 
We dream of seeing lives, relationships, and our city flourishing anew through the redemptive love of Jesus Christ.
— Redeemer’s Vision
 

 

God promised that he is making all things new. We believe him. And we believe that means our neighborhood too. So, our focus is Midtown/Downtown Memphis, and our love for the community extends into its fabric — social, political, economic, and spiritual. We love Memphis. We seek, therefore, to lovingly follow Christ in our city, to love and serve our friends and neighbors, to share their joy and tears, and to provide for everyone a safe space to explore, expand, express, or exclude the claims of Christ.

 
 
 
 
We are a worshipping community sharing in Christ’s mission to make all things new.
— Redeemer’s Mission
 

 

One of the ways God is making all things new is through his church – the family of those whom he has redeemed. Our job is to be that community, a family who fulfills God’s command to “love one another” as we gather to worship him. Yet, it is not quite enough to say that we are just a family, because we are a family with a job – an identity and purpose and mission. Christ invites us to join him in his work in the world, so we do not simply go to church, but we endeavor to live as the church.

 
 
 
 
Christ’s peace creates an authentic and soulful community.
— Redeemer’s Values
 

 

When Christ calls us to himself, he calls us in body, mind, and soul. So as Redeemer goes about our mission, we do it as whole people - people who unflinching embrace the beauty and humanity and physicality of who God made us to be. Our family loves each other deeply, and we wrestle together through faith and doubt as we are reminded of who we are and whose we are in Christ.
