Redemption City is founded upon the person & work of Jesus Christ.

God through Scripture calls His church to organize itself under biblically qualified leadership (Ephesians 4:1-16).  At Redemption City, we believe a plurality of elders should be in place to jointly oversee the doctrine, discipline, and direction of the church.  These men may or may not be paid by the church, but they each share a primary responsibility to shepherd the flock of God with wisdom and integrity (1 Peter 5).  That said, Redemption City is ultimately founded upon the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Through the Holy Spirit, Jesus oversees all matters of life and doctrine, and all human authority is made subject to Him.
