Those Who Worship Him Must Worship Him in Spirit and Truth (John 4.24)

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.

An Introduction to Contemplative Prayer

Below is a video of An Introduction to Contemplative Prayer by Jim Williams at Church of the Redeemer.  The overview that Jim gives assumes a Christian context and that his listeners are committed Christians.  Christian Contemplative Prayer occurs in the presence of God by people who are filled with the Holy Spirit.  Without the relationship to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the act of engaging in contemplation can open a person up to negative spiritual experiences.  Christian contemplation is a spiritual discipline that is done by a Christian who lives an active devotional life in a Christian community.  Links to the books Jim references are below the video.
