PART OF THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST DENOMINATION
Redeemer is part of a denomination which calls itself the United Church of Christ. Founded in 1957, the United Church of Christ also was birthed with a larger vision of unity. For the first time in American history churches with widely different backgrounds came together as a visible sign of unity in Christ.
Our Congregational Church roots go back as far as 1620 to the Pilgrim and Puritan settlers of New England. Our Evangelical and Reformed Church roots originate with the Lutheran and Reformed Churches of German and Swiss Protestantism. Our Christian Church heritage was a homegrown American church movement born shortly after the American Revolution in the southeastern U.S. By our 1957 founding, congregations from many other ethnic and racial backgrounds became part of this new church guided by the prayer of Jesus for his followers, "that they may all be one." (John 17:21)
In the spirit of our heritage we combine a common loyalty to Jesus Christ with respect for the uniqueness of each individual. We share commitment to God, to one another and the world while valuing diversity. In the United Church of Christ each congregation is the basic unit of life and organization. It is free to decide how it will structure itself and minister to its people, the local area and the world. We are a people who live and serve in covenantal relationships with God and one another, free and Responsible to live out our faith.
