This Coming Sunday
On Sunday, November 2nd, Pastor John Piippo will preach on 1 John 3:11-15:
For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous. Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
Jesus is pursuing you, even right now. We encourage you to rest in His presence today because he has much to say to you. Speak to him and listen, he is screaming his love for you. He wants nothing but you.

We Are 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. We've recently preached through the four Gospels (a 6-year project),and are currently preaching through the Jesus-sections in the letters of Paul which would be referred to the "Christology of Paul."
We are developing a Jesus-literate and biblically literate people who know Jesus, not simply in theory, but personally and relationally.
If you'd like to know more about who we are and what we believe, please visit our staff blogs.
