Dear Redemption Family:
Our current cultural moment surrounding racial and systemic injustice demands the attention, repentance, and actions of many citizens of the United States; especially those who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ. Here at Redemption Church, we believe that every human being is made in the image and likeness of God and is worthy of love, dignity, and respect without any qualifications. It is our calling and responsibility to embrace God’s beautiful design in creating such diversity amongst the human race and to do so joyfully from the heart.
Many people throughout our nation’s history have claimed both the name of Christ and simultaneously participated in grievous racism. We recognize this, mourn this, and are repenting. Our desire is to walk in the light and seek the welfare of the city which implies that we seek the wellbeing of every human being.
We stand with our Black brothers and sisters in complete solidarity. We are committed to learning, listening, and leveraging our time and resources in favor of seeing the beautiful ministry of reconciliation occur here in Seattle.
Please continue to join the leaders of Redemption in prayer as we seek to best love and serve our city in the wonderful name of Jesus.
The Redemption Church Elders and Staff
