A CHURCH FOR THE CITY
Boston. It’s a beautiful place to live, work, and raise a family. It’s city filled with wonder and awe. A city that wants to impact and change the world. Yet, Boston is also a broken city teeming with over-worked and under-loved people seeking meaning, hope, and glory in everything but in the God who made them.
As a church, we envision, pray toward, and are slowly becoming a counter-cultural picture of the Kingdom of God in our time and place. We envision a vibrant church community that embraces sacrificial love in a city known for individual pursuit and competitive cultural relevancy. We envision a church that will be marked by a deep, rooted commitment to staying and raising families in the city. We envision a church that breaks down barriers in our city. We envision a church that equips and empowers people to join God's renewing work in every sector of our city.
More than anything else, we are a community of prayer and faith. We believe that God is the architect and builder of his church, and "unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain" (Psalm 127:1). We are committed to faithful prayer as He builds His church in Boston.
We exist to seek the renewal of Boston by Making followers of Jesus through the gospel, Mature them in community, and Multiply for the Good of the City
Our primary mission as a church is to make disciples of Jesus in order that more and more people may receive and enter into the kingdom of God announced by Jesus. Becoming a member of our church means committing to proactively advance our mission of making disciples. These words (which are our way of stating Jesus’ mission for his church: the Great Commission of Matthew 28:16-20) guide and shape everything we are and everything we do as Redemption City Church. We want to see people who don’t know Jesus, transformed in such a way through the life of the Spirit in our church community that they are then sent back into the city to serve as God’s ambassadors on redemptive kingdom mission
Redemption City Church is a non-denominational church that believes in the authority of the Christian Scriptures for our life and practice. We hold to the essential orthodox Christian beliefs as best expressed in the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed, as well as the The Gospel Coalition statement of Faith.
