Redeemer Hoboken is a Presbyterian church, which means we are led by a group of elders nominated and selected by the congregation rather than by the pastor alone. This model of shared leadership and ministry permeates everything we do as a church.
As a Presbyterian church, we trace our theology and faith back through the Protestant Reformation to the historic early church in Jerusalem. We believe the Apostles Creed is the summary of the Christian belief.
Our Purpose Statement
In response to Jesus Christ’s love, we seek to become his disciples, proclaim his truth, and serve our neighbors all to the glory of God.
Become His Disciples
Our church is modeled on the early church described in the book of Acts:
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer…every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
In addition to our Sunday services, we support a network of Fellowship Groups in Hoboken and surrounding communities. These informal groups, which meet during the week, are a wonderful way to learn about Christianity, grow spiritually, study Scripture, and work out the practical implications of Christian faith in our personal and professional lives.
Proclaim His Truth
We acknowledge the Bible as the definitive Word of God and, therefore, claim its authority over all decisions made within the church.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Serve Our Neighbors
We believe that God uniquely gifts every Christian to meet the needs of others. As a church, we work hard to help each other identify, grow, and nurture these gifts. Our diaconate and Fellowship Groups are designed to allow people to explore different ministries and serve our neighbors in Hoboken.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
