What does it mean to become a member of Redeemer Hoboken Church? There are two sacraments which define membership in the Christian Church:
Baptism is a public act of faith through which a person becomes a member of the Christian Church. Through the Sacrament of Baptism a person publicly witnesses and acknowledges the spiritual truth that it is only through the cleansing blood of Christ (of which the water is a visible sign) that a sinful person can become part of God’s covenant family, the Church.
The Lord’s Supper
The Lord’s Supper is the Christian Church’s ongoing celebration of Christ’s sacrifice and is open to all baptized Christians. Like baptism, the Lord’s Supper is more than a ritual, symbol, or remembrance. Rather, it is a sacrament, which means it is an ongoing means of grace, spiritual nourishment, and renewal.
If you should choose to become a member of Redeemer Hoboken church you are joining not just a community of faithful Christians, but rather a spiritual body defined by Christ as its head. We believe that it is our mission and privilege to be active as Christ’s body in the world by following his example, learning from his life, and seeking to make him visible through our service to our neighbors.
We hold membership seminars several times a year in which those seeking to join our church can learn about our history, our ministries, and beliefs.
