Is faith a noun or a verb?If faith is a noun it is about what we must believe in. Think creeds, statements about faith and the like.If faith is a noun however, it is about how we live out and practice what we hold to be true.It is important that we see faith in both ways.How we live out our faith, how we engage in a life of faith is important.Here at Our Redeemer’s you will find a community of believers who seek to do just that.
Here are four ways that help us to engage our faith.
Prayer is as simple as a conversation with a friend. We believe that God hears all prayer. God is eager to hear the yearnings of our heart. When we do not know how to pray, it is as easy as, “Dear God, listen to what is on my heart…”. The important thing is to know that God hears us whether we know how to pray or not.
Here at Our Redeemer’s we pray all the time.In every worship service you will hear us pray for all sorts of things.During worship there is a prayer team that is ready to pray with you personally.Our prayer ministry also includes a prayer chain.There are dozens of people who pray daily for those who are in need.If you would like the prayer chain to pray for you you may send your prayer requests to [email protected] If you would like a pastor to pray with you you may contact either Pastor Arne or Pastor Kendra through their email.
