Why a Church Plant?

Christ gave the church the task to "make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19), and this is done by proclaiming the gospel and planting churches wherever Christians find themselves and wherever other Christians can go to reach those who don't know Christ.  Redeemer Church desires to see these outposts of the gospel everywhere. Redeemer hopes to plant a church in Kent, Ohio that is devoted to Biblical, confessionally Reformed truth.  We long to assist it to become a faithful church that for generations will gather God’s people in Kent, grow together in holiness and a love for truth and worship, and speak and display the gospel of Jesus in Kent and beyond.

Join Christ Presbyterian Church

Christ Presbyterian Church meets for public worship on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. in the chapel at Faith Lutheran Church (931 E Main St, Kent).  Other studies and fellowship gatherings regularly take place.  For more information, visit the CPC website. All are invited to consider if you could be a part of the work of church planting in Kent by joining the growing core group there.

Distinctives of Christ Presbyterian Church

We are a church plant of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) devoted unashamedly to Biblical, confessional, Reformed truth; to rich Christian community; and to historic corporate worship. Our mission is to celebrate the Trinity through God-centered worship as we strive to exalt the glory and grace of the Father, to love Jesus Christ, and to bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Our core commitments are to

  1. the Priority of the Gospel
  2. the Centrality of Worship
  3. the Necessity of Discipleship

Our Church Planter
