About Redeemer

Redeemer Presbyterian is a worshiping community that exists to be transformed by God’s grace into faithful servants of all. We are nestled in the heart of Winston- Salem, NC in the Historic Ardmore neighborhood which joins two major medical centers and is close to downtown. After our start in 1981, we planted several churches in the surrounding area with whom we now partner in our work around Winston-Salem. We are now a church of 350-400 regular attenders who are eager to see what the Lord has for us in this season.

As a redeemed people, we see church as a new family, not as an activity. Love from God drives our actions as we interact with and serve people both in Winston-Salem and every part of the world. We support 18 cross-cultural workers and are deeply involved locally. The teaching of God’s Word helps us live faithfully and at peace with Him and one another. We are intentional about spending time in worship, prayer, and the Word as we reach out to others and welcome those who reach out to us. We use our abilities and gifts to be the hands and feet of Jesus so we can effectively serve others, particularly in our priorities of next generation ministries, hospitality, deepening relationships, and spiritual formation. Our desire is for God to advance His Kingdom through us becoming faithful servants of all.
