Following Jesus Together
A Closer Look At Who We Are
Christ the Redeemer is a community that believes Jesus is alive. He is the Savior who defeated evil and death, and we gather on Sunday to celebrate his resurrection. We believe that in our gathering, we meet that risen Jesus. We engage in worship that isn’t just ‘spiritual’ because we acknowledge that God didn’t just create souls. Rather, our worship is physical, participatory, because God created human beings. He created us with bodies and feelings and ideas, so we respond with worship that fully engages our being. We stand, sit, kneel, and bow. We lift our hands, we cross ourselves. We ring bells, we light candles. We stand for the proclamation of the Gospel readings. We partake in Eucharist each week, celebrating the truth and beauty of the resurrection each Sunday. Of course, none of these things is required. Most of our community is comprised of people who come from traditions other than Anglicanism and some from no tradition at all. Everyone has the freedom to participate in whatever ways they feel most comfortable. No matter your reason for visiting or what your background may be, you are welcome here.
