Redeemer Church is a small Christian congregation in Park Ridge, Illinois. We believe that God is already at work everywhere, putting the world back together into a place of peace, love, and joy. We believe that actively following Jesus lets us participate more fully in the work God is doing. And we believe that following Jesus and being a part of that work simply makes life better, for everyone.
We live in a world where people divide themselves over all sorts of things. We can do better. We want to be a community who embraces the “messy middle,” where people from various backgrounds and perspectives gather together to love, challenge, and encourage one another to imitate the life of Jesus Christ. This desire to live like Jesus is foundational to our desire to grow spiritually, share our faith with the people around us, and serve those in need.
Redeemer Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We partner with other ELCA congregations to start and support local congregations and ministries, respond to natural disasters, and fight disease and hunger around the world.
