The gospel creates a new community of people who covenant to live life together as the church. Like the early church, we will gather for corporate worship and in small groups throughout the week. We will strive to be a diverse and friendly community of faith welcoming people of all backgrounds and ethnicities. Because Jesus said that our love for one another demonstrates that we belong to him, we will serve one another, pray for one another, support one another, rejoice with one another, and bear one another’s burdens. As we live in community we will point to the veracity and power of the gospel.
Because the gospel creates a new community of people who live life together as the church:
- We will meet regularly both corporately and in small groups to fulfill the “one another” commands of Scripture by counting others more significant than ourselves.
- We will seek the unity of the church by avoiding gossip, always being ready to seek reconciliation quickly within the Christian community without appealing to secular arbitration or court systems, and submitting to the leadership of our pastors.
- We will seek to raise the children under our care in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
- We will pray for the ministries, members, and leadership of Redemption Hill Baptist Church.
