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 as best expressed in the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed, as well as OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH


 

Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Amen.

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

 

Basic Beliefs


GOD'S REVELATION: THE BIBLE

We believe the Scriptures, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God and are therefore without error in their original writings. 

GOD’S BEING: THE TRINITARIAN GODHEAD

We believe that God exists eternally in trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

GOD'S PROVIDENCE: ALL CREATION

We believe God created the world from nothing and governs all things at all times in all places.

GOD'S CREATION: MALE AND FEMALE

We believe God creates all people in His image as uniquely male and female.

GOD'S JUDGMENT: THE FALL

We believe that all people are sinful and in need of salvation. Salvation is the gift of God brought to sinful people by grace alone, and received by personal faith in the lord Jesus Christ. True Christians will be kept by God’s power forever.

GOD'S PLAN: REDEMPTION

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became a man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, rose bodily from the grave, and ascended into heaven to redeem sinful people. 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent who applies salvation to sinful people, regenerating, indwelling, sanctifying, and sealing them until the day of Christ’s return.

GOD'S PEOPLE: THE CHURCH

We believe that the church is the body of Christ sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God.

GOD'S FUTURE: RESTORATION

We believe that Jesus will return to earth to judge all people and to rule and reign with his saints forever.

WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS IN HUMBLE CONVICTION.
