The Big Idea
What is the big idea behind Redeemer’s vision for the future?
Central to what has shaped our vision and strategy looking forward is a simple desire to spread the Gospel as far as we can. God loves people, and we want as many people around us to come to know of this love for themselves.
Our desire is to do what Jesus commanded his followers to do in Matthew 28:19-20:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
The original disciples obeyed Jesus by telling people about Jesus and starting local churches to disciple believers and facilitate mission. This is the model we want to follow.
Redeemer is on a mission to build a Gospel-centered and multiplying church in The Hague. In the years to come, we believe that God has called us to reproduce what is currently one church in the center of The Hague into multiple new churches in our city, cities around us, into major European cities, and perhaps beyond!
A goal that we are aiming for is that Redeemer would start 10 churches in 10 cities in the next 10 years.
