WHO WE ARE
OUR VALUES. OUR BELIEFS. OUR MISSION.
The Church of the Redeemed of the Lord is committed to holistic personal ministry, community transformation and the continuous development of solid relationships with Jesus Christ through the Word of God.
THE ONE TRUE GOD
We believe in the one ever living, eternal God: infinite in power, Holy in nature, attributes and purposes: and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father, through His Son, in redemption; and as the Holy Spirit, by emanation.
THE GOSPEL OF SALVATION
We believe that salvation is the great inclusive word of the Gospel. Therefore, salvation gathers into itself all the redemptive acts and processes: as justification, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, sanctification, and glorification. The Hebrew and Greek words for salvation imply the ideas of deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, and soundness.
THE MINISTRY GIFTS OF
THE LOCAL CHURCH
We believe in the ministry gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers given to the church at the ascension of Jesus Christ; and that they continue to be needed and should be expected today. These ministry gifts of men and women that have been recognized and ordained to the Office of Elder, are assisted by ordained Deacons and other ministries who serve this Church Body.
THE RETURN OF CHRIST
We believe in the personal return of our Lord and the restitution of all things spoken by the mouth of all the prophets since the world began.

He began his pastorate in 1985, with twelve members and led the ministry to a current active and lively membership. Furthermore, Dr. Stokes has excelled in creating both the structure and team necessary to guide the ministry through the turbulence and uncertainty of this dramatic growth.
He serves as senior pastor for a large staff of elders, ministers, and associate pastors, with several entering the Pastorate and establishing ministries to further extend his God-given vision. Under his leadership, the ministry continues to offer essential services to the community, free of charge.
