RedLife Church began in 2012 when our lead pastor, Justin Bradley, felt an incredible draw to start a new type of church in his high school hometown of Brookville, IN called Redemption Life Church, or RedLife for short. The dream in the heart of Pastor Justin to create a “place of freedom and encouragement” has become the rallying cry of many others who have felt the same need for this type of church in our community.
Since our first service on Easter Sunday of 2013, hundreds have heard and responded to the Gospel of Jesus, and RedLife Church has quickly grown into an influential force in our community. Rather through the RedLife Food Bank, Hope Over Heroin, or a Free Community Outdoor Movie, RedLife Church is here to love the people Franklin County.
Reaching, Encouraging Discipling
OUR MISSION is summed up in one word – R.E.D. (Reach, Encourage, Disciple)
We are here to REACH out to the un-churched and the de-churched with the life-changing message of the Gospel and REACH UP to God in heaven and create a place for heaven to be felt on earth.
We are here to ENCOURAGE people in their day to day lives with the practical teaching that comes from the Bible and following Jesus.
We are here to DISCIPLE everyone to take the next step in their walk with God
Come Home to Freedom and Encouragement
OUR VISION is to be a home for freedom and encouragement.
Everyone needs a place to call home.
Everyone can experience freedom in Christ.
Everyone needs encouragement from the discouragement life can bring.
What We Believe
…that the Bible was written by God, and that it is the supreme authority on all matters of the Christian life.
…that God has always been and will always be and that He exists in three equal persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
…that Jesus is completely God, and lived completely as man. He was born to the virgin Mary, by the power of the Holy Spirit; He was crucified, buried, and came back to life; He rose to heaven and is seated today at the right hand of the throne of God; Redemption and healing were purchased by the blood he shed and in Him alone is salvation, forgiveness, and redemption; He is coming again to call those who died in the faith back to life, and to catch up those living in the faith to meet Him in heaven, and establish His Kingdom on earth.
…that every person born is separated from God because of sin and that only by turning to and following Jesus can one be saved.
…that the Holy Spirit is actively working in the earth today, empowering believers to live out their faith in Jesus and bestowing gifts on the church for ministry, that speaking in other tongues is the initial evidence for the believer of the Holy Spirit’s baptism, and that all the gifts of the spirit are available for the church today.
…that all who turn to Jesus should be baptized in water for the forgiveness of sins.
…that heaven and hell are real, literal places; hell is a place of punishment and torment, and heaven is a place of reward found only in Jesus.
