Changing the Culture
For Redeemed Fellowship Church we desire to be a place that equip the believers to do the work of God. We take the quote from the great Charles Spurgeon seriously, "Christians are either missionaries or imposters" this is true. We don't have a comfortable grey area to hide in. We must live sacrificial lives. At Redeemed Fellowship you will hear us say a lot "intentional leaders plus relational environments equals transformational opportunities!" We must be serious about creating culture that SENDS! We are not a place that desires to count our Christians, rather weigh them. Culture matters, and being intentional about where God has placed you (called you) to do his work is important. We believe here at Redeemed Fellowship that we serve and love a missionary God who has established us as a missionary church.
(2 Cor. 5:18-20), we are called to the ministry of reconciliation. It is an important thing for the body of believers to fully understand the blessing that is received in the participation of God’s reconciling work. “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” Believers are ministers. Their calling is to present themselves as a living sacrifice and this is their worship (Rom. 12:1-2).
Seeing Culture Restored - This is their worship
We worship God by reaching people where they are in life. In times of brokenness, hurt and life’s trials, it is vital for us believers to be a part of God’s Holy plan to work the culture back to a place of restoration. As a church, it is our desire to embrace the culture and the people immersed by the culture where they are in life.
Seeing the Culture Changed - being Christ in the everyday, everywhere
Seeing the Gospel cultivated daily is what changes culture to be about Jesus. We have to take this aspect of being an ambassador we see in (2 Cor. 5) extremely seriously. To live as a changed person (Romans 6:6-8) we are no longer who we used to be. This change in us is important for how we embrace the culture around us. Because we have been united with Christ through the redemptive work of the cross, we cannot “not” be silent anymore. You cannot experience this change and not desire to display it. We are Christ to the city we love in the everyday, everywhere!
