Our Mission Redeemer is a broadcast ministry whose desire is to glorify God through means of reaching people with programming that reflects the whole counsel of God in Holy Scripture. We present the historic Christian faith as expressed in the creeds of the ancient church and in the confessions and catechisms of the Protestant Reformation. We endeavor to provide quality music, proclamation, instruction, and inspiration, as well as opportunities for interaction by listeners. We believe that God through the use of His Word renews the family, nourishes the church and restores culture. While we are not a church or the ministry of any particular church or denomination, we seek to make use of the gifts of biblically faithful men of God who represent the various church bodies in which they serve. Redeemer is a non-commercial educational ministry. We are supported by the gifts of individuals, groups, and organizations that benefit from and support our purpose. Our initial goal is to provide our programming throughout the United States by securing transmitting facilities in strategic areas of the nation. We dedicate our ministry to the support of the church, the bride of Christ, as we joyfully proclaim the saving work of Jesus Christ as the only means of our eternal salvation.
