From God's heart. For God's world.
God loves God's world, and we believe we're called to enter that multi-dimensional love as a reconciled community living out the way of the cross. We live into and announce the reign of the humble King.
The following convictions from Redeemer's Vision Statement do not convey all that we believe, but they are core to who we are and express what we have come to hold dear:
We believe that the resurrection of Jesus from the dead brings into being God’s new creation. On the cross Jesus Christ defeated the powers of sin and death. By the grace of God, the new creation will increase until its fulfillment when Christ comes in final victory.
We believe that God is able and willing to save. Through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the renewing work of the Holy Spirit, sins are forgiven, people are made new, and the glory of God’s image in humanity is perfected.
We believe that this new humanity in Christ can be seen in the church today. The church is the people of God—a particular people formed by the Word of God and blessed by God to be a blessing to others. Through the life of the church, all get a taste of what God intends and are welcomed to become part of God’s people.
Bayview: Our corner of SF
A decade on, still learning.
More than a decade after first making our home in this diverse neighborhood of San Francisco, we're still eagerly discovering and learning to participate in the work of God here.
HISTORICAL NEGLECT. DEVELOPMENT TENSIONS. FERTILE GROUND FOR THE KINGDOM.
Bayview Hunters Point is a community of 35,000 in the southeast corner of San Francisco. Though it has its challenges--like any neighborhood--we've found it to be a place of welcome and just the right place to explore together life in the kingdom of God.
It's a place where Blacks, Asians, Latinos and Whites need to learn to live together.
A place where churches have been loving Jesus for generations but wonder what's in store for the future.
A place where we've experienced the hospitality of strangers and learned to practice our own.
A place where we're trying to be the good neighbors that Jesus wants us to be.
It's our place.
Pastoral Staff Team
Our church believes that the ministry belongs to the whole body of Christ, with each member gifted to do its part, and our staff have been charged to "equip the saints for the work of ministry" Ephesians 4:12.
While each member of our pastoral staff may have specific responsibilities, they minister as a team. They lead, teach, train, shepherd, and coordinate the ministry of the congregation.
Some of our staff responsibilities: Pastor Danny Fong is our primary preacher and oversees the youth ministry. Cindi Fong oversees our church school and leads our small group ministry. Gaylene Wong leads the worship ministry and oversees various aspects of our congregational life. Juliette Chien leads our youth ministry. Staff Bios
