Jesus / Jesus is the Only Way
It can be a confusing time to be a Christian.⁠ ⁠ Whether you’re new to faith or a long-time follower of Jesus, it’s clear that historic Christian beliefs increasingly run against the grain of culture. It’s not that surprising when non-Christians doubt or criticize Christian claims. We servants are not greater than our Master. The world criticized Jesus and will criticize us.⁠ ⁠ In the midst of this confusion, the leaders of Redemption Church sensed the importance of clarifying and reinforcing a number of our biblical convictions. We do so knowing that, in each case, what we believe and how we hold it will likely make us countercultural. We don’t see a great deal of value in being countercultural for it’s own sake — the shock-jock approach is great for clicks, but not for shepherding God’s people. Rather, we aim to be faithful in a world that needs the grace and truth of Jesus.⁠
