Redeemer is a gospel-centered community on mission in the city of Bloomington. During the gathering there will be teaching from God’s Word, a time of worship through singing, and an opportunity to share in the Lord’s Supper. Redeemer Kids offers classes for kids in 6th grade and under.
We believe that the gospel is more than just the entry point to salvation, but is the way we make all progress in our faith. Through the gospel, God transforms our hearts and lives, by His grace and for His glory. Because of this belief, the gospel is at the center of all that we are and all that we do as a community.
We believe that the church is not a building or a worship service, but that it is the community of believers living out the gospel. So we will be a community that does life together and displays the gospel to the city around us. We will seek to include our neighbors and co-workers in community with us as we share the gospel with our words and display it with our lives.
We believe that Jesus calls every believer to join in His mission of making disciples. Every Christian is a missionary, called to take the gospel out into their neighborhoods, schools, places of work, and everywhere they go to make disciples. As a community we want to be instruments of gospel-change in Bloomington.
Because we know that all of us are broken and we are only rescued and redeemed by the grace of Jesus, at Redeemer we want everyone to feel welcome to truly come as you are. This means it’s ok to not be ok, and that you don’t need to pretend to be somebody you’re not. This also means you don’t need to worry about what to wear. Wear what makes you feel comfortable.
When you come, you should expect to meet friendly people who will help you find your way around (show you: where to check-in your kids, where the coffee is, etc.). You should expect to hear the gospel proclaimed through the liturgy of our worship, through the honest preaching of God’s Word, and through the taking of the Lord’s Supper. You should expect to meet a community of people who love Jesus and want to make Him known.
