Westover Hills Core Values

Redeemer Westover Hills recognizes the continual necessity of remaining true to the core principles upon which the church is built and sustained. Our seven core values reflect those foundational principles, and are the “DNA” that inform every aspect of our ministry and life together. It is our desire that every member is led in a life of joyful, Gospel dependence and outward missional engagement.

GOD IS AT WORK FOR HIS GLORY
Our great hope is to be a God-centered church. Thankfully, in pursuing His glory our greatest joy is found. As a result, our confidence is not in ourselves, but in His work. Our calling is to participate in what He is already doing.

GOD'S TRUTH
The Bible is more than a guidebook; it is a living authority, shaping our preaching and teaching and applying to everyday life. It is through Scripture that God changes hearts and matures those already in Christ.

GOSPEL FREEDOM
Our central message is the Gospel message of grace, that sinners are forgiven and restored by God through the work of Jesus Christ. Grace frees us from the dual temptations of despair in failure and self-centered pride in success and it is the driving force behind our evangelism, growth, and service.

TRUE AND VIBRANT WORSHIP
Worship is at the core of our humanity. We were created to “glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” Our tendency, however, is to look elsewhere for our joy and happiness. Christian worship exists to turn us away from the trivial and artificial objects of worship and return us to the person of true worship—The Living God.

THE CHURCH- ITS PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY
The Christian faith is not lived out in isolation but in the context of the Church. Redeemer is both an organization of people and a community called the body of Christ. For this reason, we value the People of the Church- her men, women and children. Each of God’s people are uniquely blessed and called to exercise their gifts for the common good of the Church.

THE CITY AND ITS CULTURE
Christ came to establish not simply a church, but a Kingdom. Our church is to serve the wider purposes of God in the world. Our efforts seek to transform both city and culture. As “Kingdom Saints” we believe that it is our responsibility to engage San Antonio—its beauty and ugliness—all for the glory of Christ.

OPENNESS AND WARMTH
We are committed to emulating Jesus in our manner as well as his Word. The church is for every kind of person from every kind of background. It is meant to be an authentic and loving community both towards “insiders” and toward those who visit as “outsiders”. Therefore, everything we do must be done with humility, sensitivity and a listening ear to those who are not yet a part of us.

By God's grace and all for His glory, we seek to worship God's greatness, grow in Gospel freedom and extend God's Kingdom in San Antonio and beyond.
