VISION | MADE NEW In Christ, MAKING NEW DISCIPLES Of Christ
Welcome to Redeemer’s Love Houston; a church filled with beautiful stories of broken people made new by the Redeemer's Love! We care deeply about you and therefore want to be honest with you about the terrible reality of our shared human condition! We are rebels. As rebels against God, the Bible says "we all have sinned" and that because of our rebellious nature we deserve "(eternal) death." BUT THERE IS HOPE!!!! The good news is that redemption (eternal life & purpose) is available to all, through faith in Christ. Jesus can make you brand new!!! You're invited! Come learn what it looks like to be "MADE NEW In Christ & MAKING NEW DISCIPLES of Christ" with a community of like-minded believers.
ONE MISSION | MAKE DISCIPLES
Jesus only gave His Church one mission: "Go and make disciples (followers) from all nations..." (Matthew 28:19) Discipleship is a journey with Jesus, from lost to likeness. Jesus said (Luke 6:40), "Every student, when he is fully trained, will be like his teacher." You're invited!!! Come learn the ordinary rhythms of discipleship, and in so doing, participate in the extra-ordinary Spirit-empowered movement of making disciples & planting churches!!!!
