What We Believe

Our Faith

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God the Father, the Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father (and the Son). With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible, including both the New and Old Testaments, is the Holy, authoritative, and infallible Word of God. As a result, we strive to make Scripture the cornerstone of our worship and the guiding principle for how we live our lives, both individually and in community. 

The Sacraments

The sacraments established by Christ are not just symbols of a Christian's faith; they are powerful signs and witnesses of God's grace and goodwill towards us. Through these sacraments, God invisibly works within us, reviving and strengthening our faith. In the Gospel, our Lord Jesus Christ has ordained two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

The purpose of the sacraments is not simply to be observed, but rather to be used in a proper and meaningful way. It is only when the sacraments are received in this manner that one can experience their beneficial effects.

At Redeemer, we come together to partake in communion every Sunday. Baptisms are scheduled through the Easter season, and we joyfully welcome both infants of believers and adult believers for baptism. 

On Marriage

At Redeemer, we hold a traditional view on marriage and same-sex sexual relationships. We believe that the Bible clearly affirms heterosexual marriage as God's intended way for human sexual expression, and it clearly prohibits same-sex sexual activity as going against that design.

Because of the importance of these beliefs, we are also committed to promoting a more just and loving approach for same-sex attracted Christians within the church. Therefore, our intentions are as follows: 
  • To provide a biblical rationale for our stance on these issues and to explain how it applies practically to our church community. 
  • To encourage the church to engage thoughtfully and in a Christ-like manner on this topic. 

The Church

At Redeemer Community Church, we are grateful to be a part of the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others within the Anglican Church in North America. We wholeheartedly support and follow the leadership of Bishop Todd Hunter and Arch Bishop Foley Beach.

We embrace our Anglican identity and incorporate several practices and traditions. One of these is our adherence to the liturgical church calendar, which guides our worship throughout the year. We begin with Advent (Christmas), followed by Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, and Common Time. During these seasons, you'll notice that we change the colors of our stoles, pulpit, and communion table to reflect the corresponding season.

As an Anglican Church, we place special emphasis on the Eucharist, also known as communion, which we celebrate every Sunday. We consider the Eucharist to be the pinnacle of our worship, and it is open to all baptized believers who join us in worship. We invite you to receive this sacrament whenever you worship with us.
