Redeemer Presbyterian Church
is a community of faith,
provoked by the Redeemer's love,
to serve Sugar Land and beyond.

"The gospel is the power of salvation for all who believe." (Romans 1:16) The defining mark of this new church will be faith in the message of God to redeem and restore a broken world. The assurance of the gospel is the hope and promise that God sent His Son to give life back to our world and to our souls. To be part of the Kingdom of God is to taste a community defined by faith and to experience the reality-defining hope that changes hearts, minds, and communities. The Redeemer Jesus Christ brings that hope in the gospel and creates a new humanity where all who are weary, sick, and broken can find rest and peace. Redeemer Sugar Land will seek to be defined as a church about the work of seeing the lives, families, work places, and communities of Sugar Land made more beautiful by God's grace in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
+ provoked by the Redeemer's love +
It has been said that, "You cannot love what you have not experienced." The power of what the gospel offers is the ability to experience Love personally through the incarnation of Jesus Christ. As we encounter the message of God entering our world to make Himself known, of His giving all of who He is to our world's redemption, we will be provoked to something great. We will be provoked to carry on His mission of loving others and redeeming a shattered world. His Love creates and provokes a new heart that not only transforms, but that also enables those transformed to be agents of further change. Redeemer Sugar Land will be a mission of effort of those who have become agents of redemption, provoked by the Love of God, in the power of the gospel for Sugar Land. Anyone who experiences the Redeemer's love will be provoked to love others with that same divine love.

The greatest promise of God is that He is about redemption: "I will make all things new!" To be a follower of Christ is to embrace His vision for this world as our Redeemer. Our understanding of this mission of God will show itself most clearly in how we love our neighbors. Redeemer Sugar Land will seek to lead people in serving our neighbors by longing for, actively engaging, and reaching out to those who live in the Sugar Land/Fort Bend County area with the gospel. This defining mark of loving others as Christ has loved us will lead the church toward serving the greater Houston Metro area as well as taking part in ministries nationally and internationally. Serving others will not be one simple aspect of Redeemer Sugar Land, but rather loving others as Christ has loved us will be the defining mark of this new church.
