Posts Tagged ‘Praxis Church’

Three years ago a friend of mine invited me to Praxis church. I heard Justin Anderson speak for the first time from the book of Joshua. I loved the expository teaching and I loved the depth of how he spoke (plus his sarcasm). It became my second church on Sunday nights. Praxis church eventually merged with other churches to become Redemption church. Even after the merger, Justin still primarily taught at the Tempe campus. But he is now moving on to San Francisco to start Redemption SF with an amazing team. Tonight in Tempe he spoke his last message from 1 Corinthians 8:1-13. I thank God for this hero of mine and the impact his teaching had on me.

In late 2010, Praxis Church and East Valley Bible church made the stunning announcement that they are going to merge their churches into Redemption Church under the Acts 29 network – a church planting network . I have attended the evening service at Praxis church for the past few years and have also taken courses at East Valley Bible church. So this merger is important to me because I have connections with both churches. We got to attend the inaugural launch of the church in which they gathered the whole church community on the lawn of what was once East Valley Bible church. Pastor Justin gave an amazing message from Jeremiah 29 about going out into the community.

From Redemption church’s website:

Redemption Church is born out of the conviction that the church unified can impact the world dramatically for the gospel. The vision of Redemption Church is to saturate the State of Arizona with Gospel-centered, Reformed, Missional churches through campuses and church plants. We see thousands of people worshiping Jesus and living out the Gospel all over Arizona, equipped every Sunday with the same message and living out the same values everyday.
