Whether you are seeking to know more about Jesus Christ, or long to be a part of a community of people who are passionate about following Jesus, you are welcome here. Here at Redeemer Church we believe life’s greatest satisfaction is found in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and that He liberates us from our sin and corresponding guilt. We are committed, therefore, to laying out the biblical picture of this glorious God and modeling our lives and love after Jesus. So convinced of Christ’s power to transform our broken lives, we want others to experience this with us.
The mission of Redeemer Church is to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Our obedience to this mission is the foundation of every Redeemer ministry. From worship services to Children's Ministry to Student and Adult Ministries, our chief aim is to make authentic disciples of Christ who follow His ways in their Worship, their Walk, and their Work.
In coming to Redeemer you would find people who are thirsty for God, who seek to know Him through careful study of the Word of God by the illuminating power of the Holy Spirit. You will see people who are filled with worship in their hearts and desirous to express it to God in song. You will see a happy marriage between freedom in worship and rigorous Bible study. You will find people who are seeking to grow in likeness to Jesus and who also want to see the community around them redeemed by Jesus.
Harvest Bible Chapel in Rockford (our name from 2003-2020) was launched in March of 2003 after months of prayer and preparation by approximately 25 men and women committed to planting a new church in this city. As of October 2007, we moved from meeting in a local high-school to purchasing our own building and property located on 5501 Windsor Road in Loves Park, a suburb of Rockford. In July of 2020, we officially changed our name to Redeemer Church.
