Redemptive Unity is how we describe what is often labeled racial reconciliation, but with explicit grounding in the Gospel.
Tearing Down Barriers
The essence of the Gospel involves tearing down barriers – first between God and people, and then between different groups of people. Redemptive Unity, therefore, seeks more than numerical diversity in Sunday morning worship. Rather, it seeks to build a community knit together by deep, genuine relationships that boldly cross ethnic, cultural and economic lines.
Take a Step Forward
Our church’s particular purpose is “to embody and preview the kingdom of God from Buckhead to Bankhead.” Because these two areas of our parish have long been divided ethnically, economically and culturally, we believe Redemptive Unity is an explicit and deliberate part of how we pursue our purpose.
