We are energized—by this city and by the gospel.

At Redeemer Downtown, you’ll find a community of people who don’t just want to know the truth of the gospel, but who want to experience it—here in New York. By connecting with each other, learning to know Jesus, and serving our city, we take part in what God is doing and allow ourselves to be shaped by it.

Your curiosity is celebrated here.

Being a church in New York City, we hear people ask a lot of big, important questions. How should we live? How can we be happy? What does faith look like? And we welcome those questions—celebrate them even. Because we believe curiosity is deeply valuable in knowing Jesus and living for Him every day.

So, whether you’ve been going to church for years, have never attended a Sunday service, or are just now learning about Christianity—we welcome you, and we’re excited to get to know Jesus together.

We’re grounded in three values.

Simply put, Redeemer Downtown is a community living for Jesus in the city—and we do that by embracing our three shared values:

Inviting Community

We care for one another and actively invite new people to learn and grow with us.

Deeply Formed

We want to know Jesus and be constantly shaped by Him.

City Hopeful

We love New York City and want to be a part of its thriving.

Ways to engage with our current sermon series

Evaluate your own formation.

Our spiritual formation model and the accompanying worksheet provides a pathway and diagnostic tool to help us grow to become like Jesus in his character and purposes.

Memorize scripture.

Scripture kindles a flame in our hearts of love for God when our love too easily grows cold and gives us the spiritual fuel to not grow weary of doing good to others while resisting our natural selfishness.

Attend events this spring.

Through Habit Workshops, Praise & Prayer nights, meals with church officers, and connection opportunities for various groups, we will endeavor to support each other in our spiritual formation.
