Redeeming Truth Podcast

The Redeeming Truth Podcast began as a means for the pastors of Redeemer Bible Church to discuss biblical truths and relevant topics, in addition to the opportunities provided during the church's normal gathering times. In a world where theological error runs rampant and a low view of God is widespread, our aim is to call people back to the timeless, Christ-exalting truths of Scripture. We are passionate about creating video content that addresses both theological and practical issues, with the goal of helping believers grow in their knowledge, affection, and devotion to Christ.
