Who We Are
Redemption Bible Chapel St. Thomas is an assembly of Christians gathering together to worship Jesus Christ. Redemption is a Great Commission Collective (GCC) Church.
The GCC is an international family of churches and strategic partners that exist to glorify God by planting, strengthening, and multiplying Great Commission churches around the world.
Glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39).
As a member church of the GCC, we affirm and seek to practice the six distinctives of a GCC church. Make your way around Redemption and you'll find these represented not just in the main services or leadership, but in the fabric of all that we do.
Unapologetic exposition and application of the word of God.
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
2 Timothy 4:2 (ESV)
Maturing believers making disciples
So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.
1 Thessalonians 2:8 (ESV)
Prayer that is dependent on God and expectant based on his character and promises.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Romans 12:12 (ESV)
Worship that engages our deepest affections for God and expresses the truth of his faithfulness, glory, and the redemptive work of Christ.
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
Psalm 95:6 (ESV)
Gospel proclamation that overcomes fear in order to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”
John 20:21 (ESV)
Strategic Church Planting
Partnerships that multiply churches around the world.
And when they had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed.
Worship | Walk | Work
Mature disciples Worship Christ, Walk with Christ, and Work for Christ.
We believe that true biblical worship involves more than just singing songs about God or to God. It requires making Christ the focus and motivation for everything we do so that we bring glory to God in every area of our lives.
WALK WITH CHRIST
We believe that walking with Christ involves growing in our personal relationship with Jesus through faithful study of God’s Word, prayer and fellowshipping and doing life with other Christ followers.
WORK FOR CHRIST
We believe the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ should be active participants in the local church by serving fellow brothers and sisters as well as in their local communities by sharing the good news of the Gospel with others.
Redemption is committed to the Bible's teaching that Elders are to oversee the ministry of the local church. The Bible's teaching on those God has called to lead His church is found in 1 Timothy 3:1-16 and Titus 1:5-9.
