Isaiah 61:3 “…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair”.
Redemption Bible Church is a work of God bringing life out of death and beauty from the ashes.
In God’s glorious providence, wisdom, and grace, RBC began gathering on Sunday, April 3rd, 2022.
As a new church, we are still in the early stages of forming our identity, but we are united in several core areas. We have a strong hunger to know God and understand His Word more deeply. We believe that the Gospel is central to all that we do and that there is no ministry as important as the faithful preaching of the Gospel. We believe that God has not called us to be passive observers in His church, but each of us, regardless of age or gender, have been gifted and equipped to actively participate in the life and ministry of the church.
Redemption Bible Church is a multi-generational church that loves to worship, serve, and fellowship together; that welcomes, embraces, and engages newcomers; and that holds a deep commitment to the preaching of God’s Word. Our purpose is to magnify Christ’s name in all we do (exalt), to build one another up in love (equip), and to reach our community for Him (evangelize).
Join us Sundays at 1:30pm!
Mission & Beliefs
Our Leadership Structure
Our organizational structure isn’t built around personalities or power, but around our purpose and the Scriptures. With Jesus as our Chief Shepherd, RBC is overseen and equipped by elders. Under their leadership, deacons mobilize the church through service by carrying out the practical through ministry teams. Essentially, we are Elder-led, Deacon-served, and Congregation-governed.

What We Believe
Our Statement of Faith
We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, that they are God-breathed, and that they are fully truthful and without error in the original writing (Mt 5:18; Jn 16:12-13; 2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pt 1:20-21).
We believe that there is one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is distinct from one another, eternally existing with different roles relating to each other and to man. Yet all three are fully God, co-equal in power, glory, and perfections (Deut 6:4; 2 Cor 13:14).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is fully Man and fully God. He took on flesh when He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men (Lk 1:35; Jn 1:1-2, 14).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross by taking our place as the perfect atoning sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Rom 3:24-25; Eph 1:7; 1 Pt 1:3-5; 2:24).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He acts as our High Priest by representing believers to the Father, interceding on our behalf, and advocating for our righteousness (Acts 1:9; Rom 8:34; Heb 7:25; 9:24; 1 Jn 2:1-2).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He regenerates, baptizes all believers into the body of Christ, and indwells and seals them unto the day of redemption (Jn 16:8-11; Rom 8:9; 1 Cor 12:12-14; 2 Cor 3:6; Eph 1:13-14).
We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth, and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit (Jn 16:13; Eph 5:18; 1 Jn 2:20, 27).
All things in the universe were created and made by God in the six literal days of creation (Gen 1–2; Ex 20:8-11). The creation record is factual, historical, and clear. All things which now exist are sustained and ordered by God’s providential care through Jesus Christ in whom all things have their being (Col 1:16-17).
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God. Man is totally depraved, and of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Gen 1:26-27; Rom 3:22-23; 5:12; Eph 2:1-3, 12).
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. All who believe are justified and forgiven on the basis of His shed blood (Jn 1:12; Eph 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Pt 1:18-19).
We believe that all believers, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever (Jn 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Rom 8:1, 38-39; 1 Cor 1:4-8; 1 Pt 1:5)
We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh (Rom 13:13-14; Gal 5:13; Tit 2:11-15).
We believe that sanctification is the progressive work of God and man whereby believers grow in Christ-likeness. All believers, empowered by the Holy Spirit, ought to live lives that glorify their Savior and Lord by walking in obedience, practicing the Fruit of the Spirit, and by abstaining from all sinful pleasures, practices, and associations as written in the Word of God (Lev 19:2; Rom 12:1-2; 1 Cor 6:11; 2 Cor 3:18; 6:14-7:1; Gal 5:22-23; Php 3:13-15; 1 Pt 1:13-16; 1 Jn 2:15-17).
We believe that sharing the Gospel is both a privilege and a command for all believers. They should do this by the way they live and speak, by specifically sharing the truths of Scripture as God gives them opportunity, and by praying for and supporting the ones who are bringing the Gospel to those who have not heard (Mt 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Cor 5:19-20).
We believe that God is sovereign in giving spiritual gifts. We believe that speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established (1 Cor 12:4-11; 2 Cor 12:12; Eph 4:7-12; Heb 2:4).
Though sign miracles have ceased as a spiritual gift, we believe God does still hear and answer the prayer of faith in accord with His own will (Jn 15:7; 1 Jn 5:14-15).
We believe God grants each genuine believer at least one spiritual gift to love and edify the local church. It is each believer’s duty to exercise their spiritual gift(s) in the church (1 Cor 12:7; 13:1-3; 14:26).
We believe that the Church, the body and bride of Christ, is made up of all born-again persons of this present age (1 Cor 12:12-14; 2 Cor 11:2; Eph 1:22-23; 5:25-27).
We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:27; 20:17, 28-32; 1 Tim 3:1-3; Tit 1:5-11).
We believe in the autonomy of the local church, free of any external human authority or control, and that the offices of elder/pastor and deacon are the only offices prescribed in God’s Word (Acts 13:1-4; 15:19-31; 20:28; Rom 16:1, 4; 1 Cor 3:9-16; 5:4-7, 13; 1 Pt 5:1-4).
We recognize the ordinances of water baptism and the Lord’s Supper as a scriptural means of testimony for the Church in this age (Mt 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:8; 1 Cor 11:23-26).
We believe the Church began on the day of Pentecost and ends at the Rapture of the saints and consists of all believers in Christ during this time period (Mt 16:18-20; Acts 2; Eph 4:7-12). Though the Church shares in some of the promises and blessings of Israel (Gal 3:16-19, 28-29; Heb 8), we believe some promises to national Israel remain unfulfilled and still await future literal fulfillment (Gen 15:18-21; 2 Sam 7:8-17; Acts 1:6-8; Gal 6:16).
We believe in the Blessed Hope – the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation, and pre-millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to rapture His Church and in His subsequent return to earth, with His saints, to establish His Millennial Kingdom (Zech 14:4-11; 1 Th 1:10; 4:13-5:9; Tit 2:13; 19:11-16; 20:1-6).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people, the saved to eternal life in heaven, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Mt 25:46; Jn 5:28-29; 11:25-26; Rev 20:5-6, 12-13).
We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord where they await the first resurrection when soul and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord (Lk 23:43; 2 Cor 5:8; Php 1:23; 3:20-21; 1 Th 4:16-17; Rev 20:4-6).
We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain after death in conscious misery until the second resurrection when, with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire to suffer everlasting, conscious punishment (Mt 25:41-46; Mk 9:43-48; Lk 16:19-31; 2 Th 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Rev 20:11-15).
