As a group of Jesus’ followers, Redemption Community Church is making Jesus’ name great in the Laurel-Burtonsville community. Beyond just building a new super-awesome web presence (you like it so far, right?), we have a lot of work to do to accomplish this goal.
Redemption is a gospel community on mission. Let's break that down:
GOSPEL - the good news about Jesus' life, death, resurrection, ascension, sending of the Spirit, intercession, and promised return in glorious victory
COMMUNITY - an alternate society, a new human family, a matrix of Spirit-created connections, a household of faith in Jesus marked by formative, gospel-centered, life-on-life relationships
MISSION - by the Spirit's power, the gospel works in us and through us, graciously changing us so that we can help other believers and people who do not yet believe experience gracious change
Here's where Redemption is a bit different from what many people think of when they think of "church." At Redemption, we do not believe it is possible to be a gospel community on mission simply by meeting together for an hour in a church building one day each week. Jesus provides so much more! His plans for his follows are so much better!
(By the way, Steve Timmis describes where Redemption is headed in this excellent video: vimeo.com/46950525. Enjoy!)
Sundays at 10am are a great chance to start connecting with Redemption. But our weekly worship gathering is just the beginning. Here are some other ways you can find out more about Redemption right now:

A few more details in theological shorthand: Redemption Community Church is a gospel-centered, reformed, missional, and complementarian nondenominational church plant. We are replanting a congregation formerly known as Covenant Presbyterian Church. Several of our members attended the Acts 29 Boot Camp in Raleigh (November 2013) and are excited to see Redemption engage with the Acts 29 Network. If you'd like to know more, feel free to call the office, leave a comment on the Redemption Facebook page, or Tweet @redemption_md. Someone will be thrilled to tell you more!
