"But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel… "
--Jeremiah 29: 7-8a

"He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?"
--Micah 6:8

“Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?”  He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”
--Luke 10: 36-37

At CTR, we long to be a church that loves our city, not just in its beauty, but also by helping to alleviate its brokenness. Although we hope this is true of each of us in our day to day lives, the formal way we band together is through through “Mercy Ministry.”


The short answer is…

Mercy Ministries are acts of love towards our neighbors, preserving dignity, pursuing justice, and rejoicing in God's love for us in Christ.

The long answer is…

Christ the Redeemer’s Mercy Ministry mission is guided by, and flows from, a spirit-led vision for mercy as modeled and taught by Jesus in the Scriptures. We believe that Mercy Ministries serve as tangible expressions of the Good News the Church proclaims that is rooted in passionate worship and strengthened through prayer. Through this, we hope to foster and nourish environments that affirm the message of hope and dignity through God’s love, and embody His passion for justice and mercy. The Ministry of Mercy is a necessary calling of Christ’s church to active, Christ-like, compassionate service toward the needy, undeserving and oppressed, originating in the grace of Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit and emphatically pointing to God’s saving grace.
