Who We Are

Redemption City

We are a brand-new church in Fort Worth! Whether you’ve never been to church or haven’t been in years, you belong here.


It can be intimidating to try something new, especially a new church, so we promise to make your first visit as comfortable as possible. We have no other agenda other than wanting you to experience love and joy through Jesus.

We believe that the redemptive power of Jesus is available to every person, no matter his or her story. Our mission is to bring the gospel of Jesus to every person in Southwest Fort Worth. We want to be a part of the next revival in the great state of Texas, and we believe that revival can begin in Fort Worth.

Our Beliefs


There is one and only one living, true God. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. 

Jesus Christ

Jesus is the eternal Son of God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Through His death, burial and resurrection, He redeemed man from sin. 

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He enables men to understand truth.


The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction and is without error. 


Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and if offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Christ's Return

God, in His own time and own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.


Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried and risen Savior. It is a prerequisite to the privileges of church membership and to the Lord’s supper.

Lord's Supper

A symbolic act of obedience whereby baptized believers, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.


We are an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel. We operate under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. Redemption City Church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
