Declaration of Religious Mission and Purposes
The purpose of Redeemer Temple is to carry out the mandate set forth in the New Testament by our Lord Jesus Christ for His church. This will be fulfilled through four primary functions:
7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[a] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:7-8 NKJV
19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19 NKJV
5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. II Timothy 4:5 NKJV
The on-going instruction of those evangelized for Christ, as well as others whom the Holy Spirit may lead to become a part of this expression of the Body of Christ.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20 NKJV
25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which[a] is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. Colossians 1:25-29 NKJV
Equipping the Body to minister to one another.
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV
The releasing of those into ministry that God has called out for His purposes.
2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. Acts 13:2-3 NKJV
The corporate goal of this fellowship will be to infiltrate and permeate the entirety of society with the righteous and holy standards of Christ’s kingdom according to our Lord’s directive.
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be Hidden.15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV
