Redemption Church is a non-charismatic, conservative, evangelical fellowship that welcomes all who know Jesus Christ as their Savior and all who are seeking Him. Those who claim to possess the gift of tongues and other sign gifts are welcome to worship and fellowship with us if they are willing to be a source of unity rather than division within our church body. We believe that the Christian life is supernatural and that the Lord continues to perform miracles.

We also believe that current displays of the gift of tongues distract from the main task of the local church, which is to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission Matthew Redemption Church seeks to prevent the propagation of doctrines that would cause divisions within an individual church.
Therefore, members to and adherents of Redemption Church are not to propagate the teachings and emphases of the current charismatic movement. Although we do not control personal, individual interactions with the Lord, the expression of tongues and other sign gifts are not to be overtly expressed at meetings that are under the organization and authority of Redemption Church.
The Lord changes lives and accomplishes His purposes directly through reading and applying the Scriptures, meditating on the truths of the Scriptures and prayer. The Lord also uses those who minister His Word as they encourage, exhort, admonish, edify, implore, reprove, rebuke and console others toward godliness. God needs no new or unique insight into the human condition in order to change lives, regardless of whether that insight is gained through psychology or some other tool of human origin.
Problems that are approached by integrating the Scriptures with psychological theories tend to deceive individuals into diminishing the God of the Scriptures and into believing that He has not provided and cannot provide sufficient truth, insight and wisdom that will change their lives Colossians When psychology and other social sciences step beyond observing human behavior and seek to explain the causes of human behavior, they enter spiritual territory.
Only the God of the Scriptures can explain causes and offer solutions that lead to godliness and a fruitful, joyful life. God has given us everything we need for life and godliness 2 Peter He changes us as we discipline ourselves through obedience to the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit 1 Timothy ; 2 Peter The Christian who learns and applies the Word becomes mature and, in turn, can help others mature 2 Timothy We believe God created the universe in six hour days and that, before He created the universe, nothing except God existed Genesis ; Exodus ; Psalm ; Acts ; Hebrews ; Colossians God chose to create the universe and all that is in it to reveal His glory, divine nature, eternal power, infinite wisdom and supreme authority Isaiah ; Psalm ; Jeremiah ; Romans ; Revelation We deny the theory of evolution, which states that nonliving substances gave rise to the first living material, which then reproduced and diversified to produce all living creatures.

A person who professes genuine faith in Christ immediately becomes His possession Luke ; Acts ; Acts , and nothing can snatch that person out of His hands John Satan and his demonic servants viciously oppose the work God performs in and through His people 1 Peter ; Genesis ; Ephesians God, who by His nature is infinitely more powerful than Satan, in due time will have complete and total victory over Satan 1 John ; Revelation The chief purpose of mankind is to glorify God by loving Him with the entire heart, soul, mind and might Deuteronomy ; Isaiah ; Matthew All believing men, women and children are to glorify God and thus fulfill the purpose of their existence.
Worship glorifies God through adoration Psalm , praise Psalm , prayer Daniel , thanksgiving Nehemiah and a complete yielding to Him Romans Worship declares His worth, pays Him homage and celebrates Him in a life of devotion.

As a result of this season, God gave some of them a desire to be trained for ministry and to plant a church in Canada. This relationship led to the prospect of another Harvest Bible Chapel in Ontario. In the fall of , the planting of Harvest Bible Chapel Durham was announced and a Launch Team began to form and prepare.
Meanwhile, God had been preparing many in the Durham Region to be involved in this work, and over the course of many dedicated followers of Jesus Christ made the decision to commit their time, money, energy, prayers, and families to this new work.

Wilson Secondary School in Whitby. The elders at Harvest Durham believed strongly that Lord was leading us to link arms with this network of churches and continue to carry on the mission of our church with a new name, Redemption Church. Generally speaking, our service begins with worship, led by a band.
Most people stand during this time, however, there is complete freedom to be seated if you prefer. The words of all of the songs are projected onto a screen at the front of the worship center. Like most churches we take an offering in our service. If you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to participate in the offering. This is intended for our regular attendees who consider Redemption their church home.
As our guest, we only ask that you take a few moments to complete our Connection Card at the beginning or after our service which is found on your chair. The Connection Card is used to help us get to know you a bit. It is a place where you can request information, ask for prayer, let us know your thoughts, or just indicate your presence with us. In any case, we use it to pray for you during the week. Redemption provides practical Bible messages that help you deal with real life issues.
At Redemption Church, we focus on the heart more than the outward appearance. When you come to one of our weekend services, you will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles from as casual as jeans or shorts, to as formal as suits and dresses.

However, most people find themselves somewhere in the middle—most often wearing business casual. We do ask that people wear clothing that does not draw attention to themselves. We think that what you wear to church should not detract from the worship experience of others around you. We want all of the attention to go to Jesus Christ.

Scripture is fully trustworthy as our final and sufficient authority for all of life 2 Timothy ; 2 Peter The Triune God We believe in the one living and true God, eternally John existing in perfect unity as three equally and fully divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit Matthew Each member of the Godhead, while executing distinct but complementary roles in redemptive history, has precisely the same nature, attributes, and being, and is equally worthy of the same glory and honour and obedience John ; Acts He upholds all things by the Word of His power and grace, exercising sovereign headship over all creation, providence, and redemption Colossians , Hebrews God the Son We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son, moved by love in accordance with the will of the Father, took on human flesh John , 14, Conceived through the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit, He was born of the virgin Mary.

He, being fully God and fully man John , lived a sinless life and sacrificially shed His blood and died on the cross in our place accomplishing redemption for all who place their faith in Him. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He draws the unredeemed to repentance and faith, and at salvation imparts new spiritual life to the believer, bringing that person into union with Christ and the Body of Christ.
Mankind We believe that God created mankind—male and female—in His own image and likeness, free of sin, to glorify Himself and enjoy His fellowship. Tempted by Satan, but in the sovereign plan of God, man freely chose to disobey God, bringing sin, death and condemnation to all mankind. All human beings, therefore, are totally depraved by nature and by choice.
Even the distance at which the Almighty hath placed England and America is a strong and natural proof that the authority of the one over the other, was never the design of Heaven. The time likewise at which the Continent was discovered, adds weight to the argument, and the manner in which it was peopled, encreases the force of it.
The Reformation was preceded by the discovery of America: As if the Almighty graciously meant to open a sanctuary to the persecuted in future years, when home should afford neither friendship nor safety. As parents, we can have no joy, knowing that this government is not sufficiently lasting to ensure any thing which we may bequeath to posterity: And by a plain method of argument, as we are running the next generation into debt, we ought to do the work of it, otherwise we use them meanly and pitifully.
In order to discover the line of our duty rightly, we should take our children in our hand, and fix our station a few years farther into life; that eminence will present a prospect which a few present fears and prejudices conceal from our sight. Though I would carefully avoid giving unnecessary offence, yet I am inclined to believe, that all those who espouse the doctrine of reconciliation, may be included within the following descriptions.
Interested men, who are not to be trusted, weak men who CANNOT see, prejudiced men who will not see, and a certain set of moderate men who think better of the European world than it deserves; and this last class, by an ill-judged deliberation, will be the cause of more calamities to this Continent than all the other three. It is the good fortune of many to live distant from the scene of present sorrow; the evil is not sufficiently brought to their doors to make them feel the precariousness with which all American property is possessed.
But let our imaginations transport us a few moments to Boston; that seat of wretchedness will teach us wisdom, and instruct us for ever to renounce a power in whom we can have no trust. The inhabitants of that unfortunate city who but a few months ago were in ease and affluence, have now no other alternative than to stay and starve, or turn out to beg.
Endangered by the fire of their friends if they continue within the city and plundered by the soldiery if they leave it, in their present situation they are prisoners without the hope of redemption, and in a general attack for their relief they would be exposed to the fury of both armies. If you cannot do all these, then are you only deceiving yourselves, and by your delay bringing ruin upon posterity. Your future connection with Britain, whom you can neither love nor honour, will be forced and unnatural, and being formed only on the plan of present convenience, will in a little time fall into a relapse more wretched than the first.
But if you say, you can still pass the violations over, then I ask, hath your house been burnt? Hath your property been destroyed before your face? Are your wife and children destitute of a bed to lie on, or bread to live on?
Have you lost a parent or a child by their hands, and yourself the ruined and wretched survivor? If you have not, then are you not a judge of those who have. But if you have, and can still shake hands with the murderers, then are you unworthy the name of husband, father, friend or lover, and whatever may be your rank or title in life, you have the heart of a coward, and the spirit of a sycophant. This is not inflaming or exaggerating matters, but trying them by those feelings and affections which nature justifies, and without which, we should be incapable of discharging the social duties of life, or enjoying the felicities of it.
I mean not to exhibit horror for the purpose of provoking revenge, but to awaken us from fatal and unmanly slumbers, that we may pursue determinately some fixed object.
It is not in the power of Britain or of Europe to conquer America, if she do not conquer herself by delay and timidity. The present winter is worth an age if rightly employed, but if lost or neglected, the whole continent will partake of the misfortune; and there is no punishment which that man will not deserve, be he who, or what, or where he will, that may be the means of sacrificing a season so precious and useful. It is repugnant to reason, to the universal order of things to all examples from former ages, to suppose, that this continent can longer remain subject to any external power.
The most sanguine in Britain does not think so. Reconciliation is now a falacious dream. Nature hath deserted the connexion, and Art cannot supply her place. Every quiet method for peace hath been ineffectual.
