...A Presence-Driven Church
We're presence-driven (God's presence) rather than purpose-driven or program-driven. It is in God's presence that direction (purpose) comes. Our focus at Redeemer is on the real Jesus - knowing him, and abiding in him. In the last decade we preached through the four Gospels (a 6-year project), Acts, the letters of Paul, Hebrews, I John, and Revelation. We are developing a Jesus-literate and biblically literate people who know Jesus, not simply in theory, but personally and relationally.
The revelation of God through the Bible is foundational for our lives, our prayers, our teaching, and our preaching. We appreciate and use many different English translations of the Bible, recognizing that there is much to learn from the original context and languages in which the books were written.
