Royal Redeemer Lutheran Church

About Royal Redeemer

People, gathered under God’s grace, called to live out the love of Jesus Christ to those around us every day.

We are family in Christ, reaching families for Christ, by living out of love of the King!


Royal Redeemer’s mission is the same Biblical mission that is the calling of every Christ-follower and every Christian congregation:  To love and glorify God above all things (Matt, 22:37), and to grow His kingdom in the hearts of others by loving the people in our circle of influence (Matt. 22:39).  The way we express that is, Living Out the Love of the King!


We are like an extended family to one another, and because of the cross, this family lasts forever!  Out of Christian love and because He is our life and hope, we want to see Jesus Christ at the center of every heart within our reach.  His grace heals broken relationships, bringing renewal to every aspect of life, especially family life.


As we live out the love of the King, the shape of our life together is defined by our values.

  • The Kingdom of God is for everyone
  • Relational Discipleship
  • Compassionate Action
  • Grounded in God’s Word and Sacraments, filled with prayer
  • Theological Unity and differences in spirituality

Ready for a run-on sentence?!  We are followers of Jesus Christ, joined together through Word and sacrament ministry, grounded in God’s Word and Prayer, open to a diverse expression of Historic Lutheran beliefs and practices, welcoming to all, valuing healthy relationships, working together toward a world shaped by Jesus’ love.


Royal Redeemer is a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and our beliefs and practices are in line with that tradition.  We seek to teach and preach in a way that draws all people into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.  You can find a description of our basic beliefs as well as specific issues at


In the mid-1980’s faithful pastors and leaders from three of our area sister congregations, King of Kings Lutheran (Mason), Immanuel Lutheran (Hamilton), and Messiah Lutheran (Greenhills), combined energy and resources toward a new mission congregation in West Chester Ohio.
