connect

 

This is where it all begins.  Connect is a 90-minute gathering to help you and your family connect with Jesus and the Redeemer family.  We’ll sit around tables and enjoy some good food.  You’ll have the opportunity to connect with a variety of people who make up the Redeemer family and hear how connecting to Jesus and the Redeemer family has changed their lives.

During the Connect event, we’ll answer your questions about the Redeemer family and explore some next step opportunities for you and your family.  Our goal is to make sure that your time is valued and you leave feeling more connected to the Redeemer family. 

 
 

101 class

We believe that Jesus changes everything and that through His life, death, and resurrection, God has made a way back to Himself for everyone.  The Church has an amazing message to share: that salvation is not based on anything we do, but by the grace extended to us by what Jesus has already done.  It's a gift from God and its easy to receive.

101 is a one-day introduction to what we believe at Redeemer and is led by our pastoral team.  Throughout our time together, we will walk through the Creation event and the Fall, Jesus' Incarnation, Crucifixion and Resurrection, Baptism and Communion, Redemption and Restoration, and more.  

If you have questions about who Jesus is and what we believe as a church, or if you are just wanting to revisit our core beliefs, we invite you to be a part of this group.

baptism

 

Baptism is one of the most beautiful gifts God could give a person. It’s the moment where He adopts you into His family and gives you all the benefits of being a son or daughter. 

In Mark 16:16, Jesus taught that whoever believes in Him and are baptized is saved. 

The power of baptism is in the work of God, not us. It is His gift to you and if you would like to learn more about baptism, we are ready to talk with you and your family.

 
 

reading the Bible

We believe the Bible is completely true. From front to back, the Bible reveals Jesus as the answer to the brokenness and hurt in this world. In the Bible, God reveals how He has saved us from sin and death through Jesus’ work on the cross and resurrection from the dead. He also makes beautiful promises. He teaches what a life in alignment with Him looks like. And He reminds us over and over that He is for us because He loves us. 

To read the Bible with us, text "@RLCBIBLE" to 81010 to receive a daily reading via text message each morning. You can also email us at nextsteps@redeemer.net to receive the daily reading via email.

serve one another

 

Serving is one of the best ways to live out your faith in community with others and is the most powerful way to make a difference in your life, the life of your family and the life of others.  Whether its volunteering on a Sunday morning or serving on the other side of the world, opportunities to serve are plentiful here at Redeemer and we encourage everyone to get involved in shaping our church, our greater Austin community, and all the way to the ends of the earth.

We recognize how busy schedules can be, and we also recognize there's a million things competing for your time and attention.  Here at Redeemer we really believe that serving is paramount to growing closer to Jesus and as He taught us to serve by His own example, that's what we are working towards.

 
 

choose community

Redeemer is a large church. Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the mix. That’s not how God designed His Church. We are designed to know, love, encourage, and affirm one another. This is why we believe the Redeemer family will only be as strong as we are small. 

Groups provide us the opportunity to connect with each other more deeply, grow in our relationship with Jesus more fully, and serve at Redeemer and in our communities in meaningful ways. 

There are a few options you have when taking your next step to Choose Community. You can connect with a current group, join a new group that is staring up, or you can grab a friend and start your own. We will provide the training and will walk with you as you learn to lead if you choose this option.

bring a friend

 

A single moment in the presence of Jesus and His Church can change someone's life forever.  In today's culture it's almost too easy to invite someone to join you for a meal, a movie, a sports event, and so on; so why not bring a friend to a group gathering, a serving opportunity in the community, or even to a worship service on a Sunday morning!  From social media to a simple email or phone call, we want to be a community who actively bring others to experience Jesus as we do as a church family each and every day.

 
 
 

give generously

You’re surrounded by generous people at Redeemer. 

When you give, you help create a church that intentionally partners with people to follow Jesus into their homes, families, and communities. 

You can give right now.

join the family

 

Redeemer is one big family. It really is at the core of this community. 

If you join the Redeemer family, you are align with the things Jesus is doing here and how we are joining Him in His mission to make disciples of all nations. 

We want you to come to Starting Point, a place where we can get to know each other and talk about the exciting things Jesus has led us to be here in Austin. From there, our pastors love to connect with every family personally and would like a time to get to know you one-on-one. They will help you and your family take a look at a few options for next steps in the community.
