Those Who Worship Him Must Worship Him in Spirit and Truth (John 4.24)



Elizabeth City, NC refers to itself as the Harbor of Hospitality.  Church of the Redeemer serves as a Spiritual Harbor of Hospitality for all who come through its doors.  We hope that the same hospitality God shows to us in Jesus Christ overflows to all who visit the church and to the wider community.  In our life together, we emphasize the authority of Scripture, the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the family of faith.

Jesus’ invitation urging people to “Come” echoes in all of the services and ministries at Church of the Redeemer.   Jesus explained to his followers that whatever we do to even the least of our brothers and sisters we do unto him.  By serving each other, other Christians and those in the world that God is calling, we believe we are feeding Jesus, clothing Jesus, healing Jesus, visiting Jesus and blessing Jesus everyday.

We believe the greatest hospitality we can show to people is to lift Jesus up that He might draw all to Himself through the preaching of the gospel and faithful administration of the sacraments.  We rely on the empowering of the Holy Spirit and the gracious gifts for ministry he distributes to all who are saved through Jesus.

You are invited, welcomed and encouraged to come and experience Jesus’ love in our spiritual home.

Kenya Christian Education Partnership 2014 Update

Sunday October 12th was a special day at Church of the Redeemer. We were celebrating our 8th anniversary as a parish. In 2006, our church was formed as an Anglican church in the Province of Kenya. We were so blessed to have The Rev. Qampicha Daniel Wario with us from Kenya to remind us where we were planted and to inspire us to commit to further develop our relationship with the Anglican Church in Kenya. The ministry of Qampicha matches the call of God upon our church to stand firm on the word of God and to engage in Holy Spirit empowered ministry in the church, community and the world. At both of our services, Qampicha spoke about his ministry in Kenya and Tumaini School that he started in 2011 with one classroom.  The school now has 350 students from all backgrounds.  The school is thoroughly Christian. He shared how important his American partners are to his ministry and the school. He did a great job speaking slowly for our southern congregation. We took up an offering for Qampicha and his ministry, as we do on the second Sunday of every month.
