Our Services

What are services like?
Preaching will be Gospel-centered. It will work systematically through books of the Bible. It will attempt to apply the truths of the scripture to our hearts and minds, increasing our joy and helping us to live out the Gospel on a daily basis. The sermons will be available via podcast (search the iTunes music store) or on the website. The songs we sing will be Biblically sound and relevant to the sermon. We will sing a mixture of modern and ancient hymns as well as songs written by some of our members. We realize any musical style will accommodate the tastes of some while it will be a struggle for others. Our desire is that all worshipers will let the gospel centered content drive our affections even if some prefer a different instrument, volume level, or arrangement. Beyond the music, we really believe God is present in a special way when we gather to worship, so we will be passionate and joyful about engaging the Spirit of God in our gathering. We will regularly observe the ordinances of baptism and communion. We believe that these are extremely valuable, as God has given them to the church as a physical reminder of the Gospel and a means of sanctifying grace. The Lord’s Supper serves as a great gospel response to any sermon that centers God’s people on Christ’s finished work. Likewise, baptism represents our identification and participation in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Our philosophy on how to include children in our community may be different from that of many other churches. We want to include children of all ages in community life as much as possible. Young children (Kindergarten and under) will be expected to attend the beginning of each worship service with their parents. They will be dismissed to classes after the first segment of the service, which will always include singing, prayer, and reading of scripture. The children’s classes will be Gospel-centered and age appropriate. Older children will have the option to stay for the entire service. We will provide worship aids, such as children’s bulletins to help them participate. We want to help young Christians value living in community with other believers and enjoy worshiping corporately with them.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Redeemer's Sunday services are all about the gospel, and it applies equally to Christians and non-Christians. We like to think that it is a great environment to hear Christians speak to one another about the value of Jesus and what this means for our lives.

David A. Ritchie

David is married to his lovely wife Kate, and together they have a son named Solomon. As a fifth generation West Texan, David was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas. After nearly a decade in local-church ministry, and several years as a college pastor, David felt a call to pioneer a new church in his hometown that was uniquely committed to gospel-centered ministry, community building, and church planting. In the fall of 2011, he took the call to replant what was then called The West Amarillo Christian Church as Redeemer Christian Church. David has studied at West Texas A&M University and Reformed Theological Seminary, and enjoys reading, traveling, playing the upright bass, and spending time with his family.
