  • If you have a hard time understanding finances in light of God's kingdom you aren't alone. It may seem that finances and physical resources are at odds with your spiritual life. But that can't be farther from the truth. Jesus talked about money more frequently than hell.

    This past Sunday, Pastor Shawn taught on the Biblical perspective of money and God's kingdom, and there was also a live Q&A panel with a few Redemption members...


  • Your love will surely come find us. This truth has really hit me recently over and over again as I navigate this life on earth in relationship with God, our perfect and loving Father.

  • I have always enjoyed listening to a good story, and I particularly enjoy stories that are rooted in truth. I think most people are in that boat. That’s why you see “based on a true story” slapped onto every other movie these days. But there are plenty of stories that go untold or at the very least, under-told.
