Our Vision

We are a church with a desire to love God and our neighbor, and be a redemptive presence in Santa Cruz.

At Redeemer we often say we’re building a Sanctuary of Renewal. What we mean by that is we’re investing ourselves in cultivating a truly safe place where we can all be reclaimed, restored, and repurposed by the Lord. I’d love to invite you to be part of what God is doing at Redeemer. You can join us Sundays at 11:00 a.m. for our worship service. Small Groups are a great way to meet folks, build friendships, and pray together. You can even join a service team to give back. If we can help you in any other way, please let us know. May God bless you, keep you, and make his face shine on you.

The Nicene Creed

The sufficient statement of the Christian faith is the Nicene Creed, which was written at two universal Church councils: the first council of Nicea in AD 325, and the first council of Constantinople in AD 381.

 
 

We believe in one God,
    the Father, the Almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth,
    of all that is, visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
    the only Son of God,
    eternally begotten of the Father,
    God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made,
    of one Being with the Father;
    through him all things were made.
    For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
    was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary,
    and was made man.
    For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
    he suffered death and was buried.
    On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;
    he ascended into heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
    and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
    who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, 
    who has spoken through the prophets.
    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
    We look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come. Amen.
