Who We Are
Redemption to the Nations Church
Believing in God’s Word and Spirit
In 2003 starting at Mountain Meadows Church of God in Ooltewah in one building with 34 people, the Lord began to multiply. Plans for the gym were drafted to give the congregation a fellowship space but was repurposed as a sanctuary space and opened for multiple services after an explosion of growth. Even then, Pastor Kevin would declare lack is not our problem. Our community was being blessed time and time again with food and clothing ministries, Thanksgiving boxes and the beginning of the Magi Project. Pastor Deven birthed The Zion Project to rescue girls from human trafficking locally and internationally. Families and new converts continued to make Mountain Meadows their home. 2010 was a banner year: the Lord lead us to change our name to share our vision: to be the most loving church in America. We became Redemption Point Church. We added the final building with a state-of-the-art children’s facility to the Ooltewah campus, and added our first downtown campus at 4th Avenue and soon transferred to East Lake. Pastors Kevin and Deven had dreams of taking the money spent on our church mortgage and sowing into missions like never before. God provided a financial miracle of $4 million to pay off our debt, renovate the original Ooltewah sanctuary into the Hub for student ministry and connection, and allow us to reach the nations, care for orphans, build churches in unchurched nations and equip pastors for the work of the ministry. Redemption Point’s reach stretched to Guatemala and Uruguay, fulfilling our purpose to be extend the kingdom of God on earth.
In 2013, the purchase of the Highland Park Baptist Church and Tennessee Temple University campus made it possible for the Redemption Point family to have a presence in the downtown Chattanooga community, fulfilling the dream that God gave Pastor Kevin as a teenager. He knew that he would pastor a church in the inner city of Chattanooga. At our very first conference for Forge young adults, God poured out His Spirit and we moved into 90 days of Times of Refreshing. People were saved, healed, delivered, set free and baptized testifying of fresh life in Christ. Under the leadership of Pastors Kevin and Deven, we have seen God dynamically move in Mom’s Awakening, Take the Land, Women of Fire, and Ruach conferences. The volunteer power of our church is unmatched. The faithful involved in the work in these conferences in addition to weekly ministries like First Impressions, Production, Firebrand, His Disciples, His Little Disciples, Prayer Ministry and more, this is only made possible by the 300 plus volunteers that seek to love God and love others. Our footprint with missions, the Zion Project, livestream, social media and special television appearances has spanned the globe. Most recently with the launch of Redemption School of Ministry, Redemption Kids School of Ministry, and Redemption Preschool, we are educating and releasing this generation and the next into their calling and purpose in the earth for such a time as this. Church, this is just the beginning. We are here today as one body in one accord to celebrate what God has done and rejoice in what He has in store for our future. We will give him praise for the marvelous things He has done and the wonders He has yet to do among us.
To Demonstrate the Kingdom of God
Redemption to the Nations Church exists to become a global voice that crosses every racial, generational, and socio-economic barrier by evangelizing and restoring people from all walks of life through the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Redemption to the Nations Church aspires to become the most loving church in the world. One by one, person by person we can reach individuals through our relationships with one another. No matter who you are or what walk of life we want you to know that when you walk through any door of our campus and facility that you are loved.
We are committed to following Christ’s example
We value God’s glory. We pursue His presence in our homes and come together as a body to encounter Him together. We are led by His presence rather than programs. Acts 2 came before Acts 6 – and we believe it’s the oil of the Holy Spirit and the power of God that transforms lives.
We prefer missions over maintenance. Both are necessary. Maintenance refers to how we minister to, take care of, and develop believers of Jesus Christ in our house. Missions refers to how we aim to go above and beyond in our mission to rescue the lost every time.
We prefer destiny over history. Our future is greater than our past. We will revisit and glean from our history while we look forward to what God has in our future.
We prefer and embrace the unpredictable over our plans. Unpredictable is not the same as unprepared. God is sovereign and we will do what He wants on His timetable despite what we have prepared to do. We remain flexible in our pursuit to follow God.
We are a house of multigenerational and multicultural synergy. Generations within our church family do not compete with each other, they complete each other. We believe the Holy Spirit is being poured out on all generations. Our church will be a place where fathers and mothers will release sons and daughters into their kingdom assignment.
Lack is not our problem. God is good and we are responsible to dream His big dreams without the boundaries of lack. Where He guides us He will faithfully provide for us.
