Why Public Faith?
Redeemer has always had what we call an “outward face.” That means one of the most important aspects of Redeemer’s ministry is to be a place where people who don’t believe as we do can come and hear winsome, accessible presentations of Christianity and the gospel that are both plausible and credible. And while this outward face is essential to Redeemer as a church, the idea is also essential to each of us individually as we seek to bring the hope and joy of the gospel to our friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
We hope to see everyone energize their efforts to become public with their faith. That is to say, we want to identify ourselves as Christian in our public relationships so that we can be better witnesses to what Jesus has done for us and the hope he offers to everyone.
In January, we’re kicking off a new season of Public Faith alongside our sister churches with a special, one-night event on Thursday, January 17 at 7 p.m. with Dr. Tim Keller. We’re calling it Inspire Night, an evening of worship, stories of changed lives, and praying for our family, friends and neighbors who may not yet know the hope and joy of the gospel. More details will be shared in the coming weeks, but we hope you’ll save the date.
Thursday, January 17th, 7 p.m.
The NY Society for Ethical Culture: 2 West 64th St.
This event is an opportunity for you to:
- Worship together with fellow congregants from all across Redeemer's family of churches
- Hear testimonies of coming to faith and sharing one's faith
- Pray for the Holy Spirit to work both in our hearts and the hearts of our friends who don't share the hope of the gospel
Space is limited to the first 800 reservations—you will receive an invitation in January.
