Redeemer Church exists to be a gospel-centered family of disciple-makers in Wichita Falls, Texas. In everything, we want to know, love, and obey God by declaring and demonstrating the Gospel in everyday life. We desire to be overtly Christian bringing salt and light in our neighborhoods, workplaces, and summer leagues.
The Gospel is the good news of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To be Gospel-Centered means that we believe the person and work of Jesus Christ is not only the good news necessary for coming to faith but so much more! The Gospel is also the good news that permeates every part of life. The good news changes us into worshipers and followers of Jesus Christ.
To be a Christian is to be a disciple, a learner, and a follower of Jesus. Jesus commissioned His church to go and make disciples, baptizing them (a symbol of initial faith in the Gospel) and teaching them to obey all that He has commanded. The church's primary mission is to lead people to faith in Jesus and to form them as disciples of Jesus. Because of the Gospel's work inside us, we seek to open our mouths and share how vital, essential, and supreme Jesus is to our neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers. We want to take the name of Jesus into this city and the nations, and that will only happen when we reach out where we work, live, and play, declaring and demonstrating the Gospel to those around us.
Redeemer Church exists to be a family. In a family, we love and watch out for one another. A family encourages each other to treasure Jesus above everything else. A family endures unimaginable sorrow together. A family celebrates new life and new seasons of life together. We look out for each other's needs, and when we are able, we meet those needs. We pray for God to add to our fold, and we go out and tell others about Him. We do this so that "the world may believe" that Jesus is who He says He is.
