"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.

Grace is being given what we do not deserve. The Gospel is a gift from God for undeserving sinners. The power of what the gospel offers is the ability to experience grace through the reality of what Christ has done for us at the cross at Calvary. As we receive and rest in God's undeserved grace for us in Christ, we are provoke to share this love and grace to the world around us. We will be provoked to carry on His mission of loving others and redeeming a shattered world. His grace 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 aims to be a community that is provoked by the grace of God, to share and proclaim the glorious wonders of God's grace to draw near to the community around us.

When God's grace touches our lives, we are united with those who have experienced that same grace. All the societal barriers and hierarchy that once separated us are broken down, because Christ is the source of our unity. However, being united with those who are vastly different than us can be difficult and uncomfortable unless we find our comfort in Jesus Christ. For if Christ is our comfort, we will willingly sacrifice our comforts to love and care for others. Furthermore, God's grace not only compels us to be united and willing to sacrifice our comforts for others, it also brings profound healing and wholeness in our lives. When we recognize the depths of our own sin and the trauma of living in a sinful and broken world, we realize that Christ is the only one who can offers us the true healing that we need through what He has accomplished for us at the cross. Those of us who have experienced this God's grace are called to share this unity, comfort, and healing with the community that God has placed us in. Redeemer Sugar Land will seek to lead our community of faith in serving our neighbors by actively engaging and reaching out to those who live in the Sugar Land/Fort Bend County area with the gospel of grace that God has given to us. This defining mark of reflecting God's grace for us to others will lead the church toward serving the greater Houston Metro area as well as taking part in ministries nationally and internationally.
