Over the last ten years Acts 29 has emerged from a small band of brothers to almost 400 churches in the United States and networks of churches in multiple countries.
They want to allow a unifying, uncommon move of God to happen through Acts 29 -- all centered on the gospel and advancing the mission of Jesus through obediently planting church-planting churches. It is our desire to see this leading to millions of lives changed by the power of the Spirit for the glory of God.
Acts 29 is seeking to get behind the men who are planting churches by:
Acts 29 is not a model or a style. They have classical church plants with a preacher and a congregation, they have video-delivered sermons, they have missional community models, replants, and existing churches that want to plant churches with us. Acts 29 seeks to be a movement of church-planting networks - that is, decentralized and empowered networks to lead men of all different types of churches in order to make disciples of all people groups.
Mission: To help leaders build gospel movements in cities.
Redeemer believes that the local church is the primary place for people to hear and experience the gospel, to grow in their faith, to serve and to build one another up, and to be equipped to work for the peace and prosperity of their cities and communities. This body of churches is ever-growing and represents various denominational and worship expressions within historic, orthodox Christian traditions.
Redeemer works with church planters and network leaders in target cities to build self-sustaining, trans-denominational church planting movements. They also relate to regional networks involved in urban church planting. On an even broader stage, they are resourcing, serving, and producing content for a global community of pastors, lay leaders, and ordinary people who want to see movements of the gospel change their cities.
