Sharing the Gospel
It is the joy and privilege of all Christians to share the message of the Gospel with others. This called toward evangelism is given not only to the church as a whole but also to its individual members. Redeemer Fellowship loves to participate together in outreach events throughout the year, but we also value the opportunities to share regular life with those around us and talk about Jesus with coworkers, friends, and neighbors. We do this with confidence trusting that God is with us and works through us to reach men and women with the hope of the Gospel.
Serving Locally/Community Contact
We believe that one of the primary ways that God is going to advance his Kingdom throughout the world and Newark, Delaware, specifically, is through local churches that not only prioritize the faithful preaching of God’s Word and the fellowship of believers, but that also seek to care for and meet the needs of the community around them. The early church was known by love and generosity and therefore, we believe that we are called by God to find specific ways to care for the community around us as well.
Church planting was the early church’s method for seeing the gospel spread and it remains as the most effective way to reach the lost with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Redeemer Fellowship is deeply grateful for Covenant Fellowship Church and their eagerness to plant new churches. We exist today because of their heart to sacrifice through church planting for the sake of the mission.
Because of how strongly we believe in the value of church planting, we not only want to establish ourselves as a Gospel preaching church in Newark, but we are also eager to plant other churches out of Redeemer Fellowship. By God’s grace we would like to see more Sovereign Grace churches planted throughout Delaware and even Maryland.
Covenant Mercies was founded in February 2002 by our sending church, Covenant Fellowship Church. This 501(c)(3) organization is dedicated to serving orphans in collaboration with indigenous local churches in the developing world. Covenant Mercies seeks to combat the multi-generational cycle of poverty in the lives of orphans and to restore them to everything God created them to be as bearers of His image.
Covenant Mercies’ first international partnership began with a church in rural eastern Uganda, leading to the establishment of the Orphan Sponsorship Program in 2003. From 2006 to 2008, they expanded their program areas to include rural western Uganda; Ndola, Zambia; and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Today, the organization serves over 1,300 fatherless children in the name of Jesus Christ.
Through a monthly or annual gift, many in our church family provide education, clothing, nutritional support, hygienic supplies, healthcare, Christian teaching, and vocational training for these children. We also participate in medical, construction and youth mission trips through Covenant Mercies. To learn more or get involved, visit www.covenantmercies.org.
