First Redeemer’s C-Worship is a weekly gathering of people for authentic worship and relevant, easy to understand Bible study. Here, you’ll find a welcoming group of Christians who want to be more like Jesus and make a difference in our community. First Redeemer Church started in 1996 when 87 people met in a converted warehouse. They passionately embraced a mission to win, baptize, teach and disciple every person possible by every means possible. Since then, God has been at work in and through First Redeemer Church to bring attention to His Son, Jesus Christ. We are a cooperative church with the Southern Baptist Convention.
