We believe every human being was created in the image of God to bring glory to God by enjoying Him in this life, and forever; that God created us in His own image to be creative and productive; that only when we see the purpose of our work as pointing to the glory of our Creator God will we ever truly be content.
We believe the restless seeking of the present “Lost Generation” derives from the absence of a vital relationship with the eternal God who stepped into our time to reveal Himself to us and reconcile us to Himself in Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the exact image of God’s glory. Our desire is to introduce you to an eternal relationship with Jesus that will make all the difference in all you are and hope to be. We are fascinated by Jesus Christ. We hope you find Him as compelling as we do.
We believe the first priority of the church is to equip moms and dads with the essential skills needed to create a thriving spiritual environment in the home.
We believe training children in piety (holy living), prayer, Scripture memory, respect for authority, and the historic truths of the ancient Christian faith is the first priority of parents. Redeemer Church exists to help you accomplish this.
We believe the church is people entering deeply into one another’s lives, meeting the emotional need for genuine relationships with others (intimacy), the spiritual need for accountability, and the physical need for security.
We believe the church does not exist to grow larger with an inward focus on its own programs for survival. The church does not exist for itself. It exists to help others for the glory of God.
We believe the church exists to make a difference in the community in which it exists by joining with our neighbors in events and causes that serve the common good, and not as a protest movement to oppose the culture.
We believe the church is uniquely called by Jesus Christ to be distinct – yet not isolated – from the culture. The church is uniquely gifted to speak God’s word into the broken lives of people who are struggling to make sense out of life. We enter fully into all that is virtuous and noble in the culture (the arts, sports, education, etc) and see it as God’s good gifts to be enjoyed.
We believe the church should be identifiable by its commitment to historic, even ancient truths and practices. The church is not a coffeehouse, a comedy club, or a concert hall, though you may find coffee, music, and laughter when we gather – all to the glory of God. To this end, at Redeemer Church:
We believe that the sinful nature of man is bent against God; yet God in mercy has devised a plan whereby we sinners can be reconciled to Him and thereby find the fullness of our humanity in relationship to our Creator God.
We believe we are called to actively and purposefully share this good news of God’s plan for reconciling sinners to Himself, so that what is broken can be redeemed, and through redemption we realize our true worth and value.
We believe God has called us to proclaim this message in Clarkston, in Pontiac, in Oakland County, and to the world – especially to “the least of these” – the poor, the homeless, the broken, and the discouraged.
