Redeem - We were ALL bought with a Great Price, given the Gift of Salvation through our Lord and Savior, Our Redeemer; Jesus Christ.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Renew - As we develop a relationship through Jesus, we gain knowledge through Gods Holy Word, and by communing with Him through His Holy Spirit. Therefore, we become Renewed (a new creation), enlightened by the truth of who we really are. Then, we discover Our True Identity given to us by God the Father before we were even formed in our mother’s womb.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
