Our purpose is based on the Great Commandment and the Great Commission:
What is the Great Commandment?
Jesus summarizes the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-39.
“You Shall Love The Lord Your God With All Your Heart, With All Your Soul, With All Your Mind… And Your Neighbor As Yourself.”
What is the Great Commission?
The Great Commission is God’s plan for building His church. Jesus communicated it to His followers in Matthew 28:19-20 when He told them to “go and make disciples.”
A disciple is a learner, a follower, a person, who is eager to apply the truths Jesus teaches. Disciples aren’t people who think they have it all together and have everything figured out. They’re people in progress – desiring to grow in love, grace, peace, hope, and truth. At Redemption Church, we describe a disciple as someone who is living the Redemption Life.
The three aspects of the Redemption Life are: Abide in Christ, Grow in the Church, Reach the Community. Learn more in our Redemption Essentials class. We believe the disciples of Jesus Christ should minister to one another in the local church. It’s not about one or a small number of pastors bearing the total responsibility to care for the entire congregation. It’s about all disciples using their God-given spiritual gifts to provide mutual ministry in the context of the vibrant and strong local church (Ephesians 4:11-12).
