After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
Racial reconciliation is deeply on the heart of Redemption Chapel. As we preach the good news of Christ, we are painfully aware of the bad news of a broken world infected by sin. This brokenness is painfully obvious through the ugly realities of racism. Devaluing and oppressing people because their skin, culture and history are different from our own is offensive to the gospel and antithetical to the heart of Christ. We all bear God’s image, and we are all equal in value and worth in His eyes. Regrettably, our society has struggled mightily with this issue and caused a divide between people and cultures. We are passionate about trying to heal that divide with the redeeming power of the gospel as we pursue racial reconciliation. We believe the Church should shine into this darkness, for we have unity under the cross where there is “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all” (Ephesians 4:5)
WHAT YOU CAN DO
More than just talk about racial reconciliation, we want to do what we can as a church. We fellowship regularly with SPAN Ministries for a couple of events you can participate in. One of those events is called CrossOver, which is a discussion-oriented night with dinner, prayer and worship hosted at Redemption Chapel.
