Defining and applying redemption in Jesus name

View sermons

Sunday’s at 10am

Redemption is a difficult idea to wrap our heads around especially when we consider all that is going on in this world. What does the Bible mean when it talks about God redeeming this world? Doesn’t that mean it should be getting better? And what part do we play? Is God’s place different from the worlds?

Comparing & Contrasting Definitions

We believe the way the world defines and attempts redemption is significantly different from how God would. Below are the two definitions that we are looking to spend time comparing and contrasting over the next twelve weeks. What makes God’s definition more compelling, effective and pursuable?

World Redemption

The active process for a dependent humanity to find their own purpose, for themselves and the world, through unified independence   

Real-Life Version

Good people helping good people to become better people for their sake and the worlds…. through their agenda  

God’s Redemption

Thee active process with a dependent humanity to work out God’s purpose for the world though the Church

Real-Life Version

A good God working with broken people to show the world who He is….through His Church
