Come join us for worship on Christmas Eve at 5pm at 901 Charleston St., Lincoln, NE Directions
In 2008, Redeemer began as a small group Bible study with a weekly Sunday School class, casting a vision for a church plant in downtown Lincoln. At its inception, we only hoped that Redeemer would grow to where it is today.
After launching weekly worship, Redeemer drew in about 80 people a week; now we see an average of 140 people every Sunday. We have come from raising funds to being a financially self-sustaining community. Our worship took place in "borrowed" spaces; now we own a small, 100-year-old church. At the blessing of its former owners, we purchased the building for $1 and have since renovated it for the needs of a new congregation. We are located only a few blocks from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the neighborhood of The North Bottoms.
Redeemer is about one thing: Jesus Christ. His Person. His Work. His people.
There are many good things we can give ourselves to, but there is only one thing we want to give ourselves to at Redeemer. We desire to clearly, compassionately, and courageously proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ with a vision to see Lincoln, Nebraska, become a city shaped by a deeper love for and trust in the Savior.
First, we exist by grace. Redeemer has been planted, watered, weeded, and is growing because of the grace of Jesus Christ, the passion of God the Father for His Son's glory, and the power of the Holy Spirit to advance Christ's Kingdom. Redeemer exists because of Someone.
Second, we exist in order to be a part of an authentic, relational, Christ-centered community. Our vision is not to re-shuffle Christians into new churches, but reach non-Christians and un-churched Christians and help them find genuine relationships with others. Redeemer exists for a lot of someones.
Everything we do at Redeemer -- from the worship service to kids' ministry; from Life Groups to Youth Groups; from missionaries we support to ministries we embrace -- is built on these foundational reasons for our existence. By grace, we are a Christ-centered community, empowered by the Holy Spirit, coming alongside the lost, proclaiming the gospel to one another, discipling one another to serve, and doing so all for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Redeemer is part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). For more information about the PCA, please visit pcanet.org.
We are an authentic community dedicated to the city.
True to the Scriptures, the reformed faith & obedient to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
The individuals tasked with guiding this adventure we call Redeemer.
