Thanks for visiting! Whether you are here as a UD student or as a growing family; a single parent or as someone enjoying the later years of life; whether you are searching for a church home or looking for answers to life’s biggest questions, we are glad that you found us.
Redeemer Fellowship is a new church plant in Newark, Delaware. We were planted by Covenant Fellowship Church of Glen Mills, PA. This site will briefly introduce you to the mission and ministries of our church. We hope that you can catch a glimpse of who we are as we seek to delight in Christ, love one another, proclaim the gospel, and serve our community. Please let us know if there’s any way that we can serve you.
-Joel Shorey, Lead Pastor
At Redeemer Fellowship, we are reformed, gospel-centered, continuationist, complementarian, and missional. These five core values act as foundations that shape and guide who we are as a church family.
Based on the Scriptures alone, we believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. God has graciously chosen a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. We are glad recipients of his marvelous grace.
It’s all about Jesus. From beginning to end, the Bible points us to the amazing reality that God has been merciful to sinners by sending Jesus. We want to display God’s glory by celebrating, proclaiming, and living the gospel through the power of the Holy Spirit.
To do what Jesus has commanded us to do, we need power. Thankfully, God himself provides this power through the Holy Spirit who lives in every believer. The Holy Spirit empowers us for life and mission and gives supernatural gifts to build up the church, just as He did in the book of Acts.
Men and women, while different, are both created in the image of God to display the glory of God by reflecting the relationships of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and of Christ to the church. According to God’s good design, men and women play distinct, but complementary, roles in the church and the home.
We believe Jesus has called the whole church to be on mission until the day that he returns. Embracing our identity as those who are sent by Jesus is essential to understanding all of life.
