What We Believe

Redeemer affirms all the ecumenical creeds of the Christian Church, including the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.   We also summarize our beliefs in this way:

We believe that God… 
  • created and sustains all that exists,
  • entered human history in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior who gave himself in love for the world, and
  • continues to work in and through the Church by the power of the Holy Spirit for the redemption of creation.

We believe that we are called by our baptism…

  • to lives of daily repentance and renewal,
  • to be living witnesses by our words and actions to the Good News of Jesus Christ, and
  • to practice compassion, mercy and justice as signs of God’s in-breaking kingdom.
In all these things, we affirm
  • the truth of God’s Word as revealed to us in the Holy Bible,
  • the historic witness of the Church, especially as expressed in the creeds and the Lutheran confessions, and
  • God’s gift of the sacraments for the arousing and strengthening of our faith.
 
Redeemer is a member of the NJ Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
