Episcopal Church of the Redeemer

Diocese of Florida

Our Mission:
To comfort, inform, challenge and inspire.

Our growing congregation is alive and committed to sharing the message of hope promised by our Lord Jesus Christ. We are a diverse parish of people simply seeking a deeper way to experience and share God’s love. From cradle Episcopalians, to those new to liturgical worship, to those from other expressions of faith, we welcome all into our family.

A wide range of service and ministry opportunities provide in-reach to our church family and outreach to the community beyond our doors. We believe we are called by Christ to be living examples of his love for us. And we share that love through ministries that reach into our neighborhood and as far away as Cuba.

We invite you to experience the discipleship and fellowship of Jacksonville’s Episcopal Church of the Redeemer and join our journey of faith together.

About The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Florida, which in turn is part of the Episcopal Church of the United States. Founded in 1838, the Diocese is Florida’s oldest and is composed of 62 parishes in 25 counties. The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion and traces our roots and worship traditions to the earliest days of Christianity. The Anglican Communion adheres to Five Marks of Mission, which serve as a guide for our actions:

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God
  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

As Episcopalians, we believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person. We believe in the amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.

Both men and women are eligible for ordination and serve the church as deacons, priests, and bishops. Lay persons play important roles in our worship, our ministries and the governance of our church.

We welcome all baptized Christians – not only Episcopalians – to partake of Holy Communion.

We honor our differences and celebrate our unity in Christ.

We respect the right to question and to seek God’s truth for our lives. From the curious, to spiritual seekers, to those of deep faith and belief, all are welcome at Redeemer.
