An extremely important part of life at Redeemer is membership. We feel that membership at RBC or any local church is necessary for a Christian’s growth. Through membership, you will experience deeper relationships with other believers as you witness and participate in living out the gospel on a daily basis: caring for others, forgiving others, serving others, practicing the “one anothers,” fellowshipping with and loving others. As we say at Redeemer, “the gospel changes everything” and as part of the body at Redeemer you will witness that truth in action.
“We are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”
Our Membership Process:
Once each quarter we offer an introductory class for prospective members offering an overview of our vision, values, doctrine, polity, and ministries. During this class we will also offer the biblical rationale for church membership. Redeemer 101 is an informal time of teaching and conversation designed to be both engaging and informative.
After prospective members have taken Redeemer 101, they are encouraged to submit their application to the church office.
Once the application is received, the office will schedule an interview for prospective members with a couple of RBC elders. Following a favorable interview, they will be received into membership and presented to the congregation as new members of the RBC faith family.
After being received into membership, we will provide a specific platform for new members to explore the various ministries at RBC in an effort to help them get plugged into serving Christ’s body.
For more information on how you can take the next steps toward membership at RBC, please contact the church office at 952.935.2425 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also learn more about why we think membership is important by picking up our Church Membership booklet at the Welcome Center on Sunday or view the electronic version here.
Behind the Pulpit and in the Pews, meet the leadership of Redeemer Bible Church.
Meet all of the RBC Leadership
In 1968, when the first few families gathered to worship, they never anticipated all that the Lord would do in the years to come.
On any Sunday, you can still find people worshipping who were there forty years ago when a few families gathered to conduct Sunday School and listen to sermons on tape. In the forty-plus years since then, we've grown.
The western metro is where we call home, but we're striving to proclaim, embody and enjoy the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that the culture of the Twin Cities can be transformed to the glory of God. We've worshipped at four different locations, been lead by five senior pastors, and now count more than 500 people as a part of our growing community.
