Our Lord's Day Worship

One of the things you might notice when worshiping at Christ the Redeemer Church is the joy of friends and families coming together as a community to worship God. 


We believe that the worship of God is the primary means of Christian discipleship - from Worship flows all other Gospel Activity in our daily lives. 


Our worship is characterized by the robust singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, biblical preaching, weekly communion,  hearty "Amens!" and the peace and joy of Christ.


Our Liturgy is the vehicle that God uses to serve His people and to renew His covenant with us. Services of Covenant Renewal that are found in the Bible follow this basic  structure: 


Calling: God calls us into His presence to "draw near" to Him in worship. We respond to God's Call with song and praise.

Cleansing: God cleanses us from our sins as we confess them to Him.

Consecration: God consecrates us to Himself by the Word of God and Prayer.

Communion: God communes with us at the Lord's Table.

Commission: God commissions us to go forth and serve Him in our daily callings and vocations, and to make disciples of all the nations.

Doctrine

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the only infallible and inerrant authority for faith and practice in the lives of Christians and in the Church, because they are the Word of God.


While we also believe the Ecumenical Creeds (Apostle's, Nicene, Athanasian, and Definition of Chaceldon) and the Three Forms of Unity (Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort) to be true summaries of the Christian faith, they are subordinate to the authority of  the Bible.
