“THE CHURCH I SEE”

A church where those far from God can encounter His Spirit in a mighty way.
A church where laughter can be heard for blocks as God’s people are filled with the love of community.
A church where creativity is expressed in everything we do as men and women use their gifts to worship God.
A church where perfection isn’t the goal, but rather Christlikeness is developed.
A church where people don’t give up on people.  There is no ditch deep enough that God can’t pull you out of.
A church where marriages flourish and families thrive.
A church where compassion is never in short supply and encouragement is the native tongue.
A church where justice is demanded and outreach is given.
A church where love, acceptance, correction, mercy, forgiveness and freedom are found that lead to redemption.
A place where you can come tore up from the floor up but not allowed to stay there…because we dare to believe that Christ can actually and literally, transform a life.
This is the Church that I see.  It’s name is Redeemed Life Church.
