Elizabeth City, NC refers to itself as the Harbor of Hospitality. Church of the Redeemer serves as a Spiritual Harbor of Hospitality for all who come through its doors. We hope that the same hospitality God shows to us in Jesus Christ overflows to all who visit the church and to the wider community. In our life together, we emphasize the authority of Scripture, the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the family of faith. Jesus’ invitation urging people to “Come” echoes in all of the services and ministries at Church of the Redeemer. Jesus explained to his followers that whatever we do to even the least of our brothers and sisters we do unto him. By serving each other, other Christians and those in the world that God is calling, we believe we are feeding Jesus, clothing Jesus, healing Jesus, visiting Jesus and blessing Jesus everyday. We believe the greatest hospitality we can show to people is to lift Jesus up that He might draw all to Himself through the preaching of the gospel and faithful administration of the sacraments. We rely on the empowering of the Holy Spirit and the gracious gifts for ministry he distributes to all who are saved through Jesus. You are invited, welcomed and encouraged to come and experience Jesus’ love in our spiritual home. Church of the Redeemer, 207 Hwy 343 South, Camden, NC 27921, 252-337-7177 Map of location.
A few recent Daily Advance, the area newspaper, articles have characterized Church of the Redeemer, Camden. Church of the Redeemer, a member of the Anglican Church in North America, exists to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ based on the authority of Scripture, as historically interpreted. We strive by grace together as a community of faith empowered by the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit. As we reject the evolving positions of doctrine that contradict Scripture, we participate in communion rather than opposition to our fellow believers in Christ regardless of denomination and locale. In its nascent stages, Church of the Redeemer consisted of former Episcopalians; today, we are a body of people with diverse backgrounds of faith and culture. Certainly, we welcome all folks to join our faith journey. Our hope is that we will always be a “Spiritual Harbor of Hospitality” and place of God’s healing salvation for all who come. Our emphases includes a high view of Scripture, the Holy Spirit’s work and the ever increasing family of Jesus Christ. I share the sentiments of other local pastors who declare that Jesus has come not to “make bad people good but to make dead people alive.” That is why Church of the Redeemer is here.
