Our Vision

(what we desire to see): an ever-growing group of people from the Lower Burrell area redeemed by Jesus and on mission together to seek and to save the lost in our community.

Our Mission

(what we are here to do): to declare and demonstrate God’s plan of redemption in Jesus Christ.

Our Values


We believe that God’s Word (preached, taught, shared among each other, and studied individually, etc.) is the means by which God grows His people.


When we say our mission is to declare and demonstrate God’s plan of redemption (the gospel), we mean that our aim is always the salvation of those who are apart from Christ. We declare this plan of God’s by clearly articulating the gospel through all means available and we demonstrate this plan by compassionately pursuing people with the love God has placed in our hearts.

Grace-based, daily discipleship

The Christian faith is not merely a set of beliefs to be affirmed as true. It is a new life and a call to follow Jesus daily. To be a Christian means to be seeking to grow in three areas: walking with God, loving each other, and seeking the lost. In all of these areas we strive for what we call “imperfect progress”, relying on the grace and mercy of God each step of the way.


We strongly desire to raise up and send out Christian leaders from within our midst to plant churches and do gospel ministry outside of Redemption Church to wherever God may be calling them. We hope that this means planting other churches in Western PA as well as around the world.
