About Us

Our Story

In the summer of 2019 the Candler family moved to Dublin to serve with City Church Dublin. We set out praying, preparing and working to see another faithful church planted in Dublin.

Having identified an area we began to consider different ways of engaging those in the community. Alongside this we were inviting others to consider joining us as part of our plant.

On Easter Sunday 2023 Redeemer began our Sunday services with a group of 15 adults sent from City Church Dublin. 

What We Believe

We believe the historic creeds of the church. In particular we hold to The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.

Below you will find more about our mission, our values, our basis of faith and our leadership. Our basis of faith is a helpful summary of what we believe and teach.

The full 1689 Confession can be found

Our Mission

“We exist to Make, Mature and Mobilise disciples of Jesus Christ for the good of all people and for the glory of God Alone.”

Our Values

In Acts 2 we are given instruction on how to identify a healthy church. What every gospel centered church should prioritise and value. We too desire to be devoted to these things. 

Acts 2: 41 - 42

Devoted to Jesus

We desire to be continually learning and growing in our knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ. This is not just to know things about Him, but to know Him personally and corporately through His Word by His Spirit.

Devoted to Prayer

We are convinced that prayer should be central in the life of God's people. Prayer and the movement of God go hand and hand throughout scripture and the early church in particular. It will be through the prayers of God's people we will see Him working with power and authority in our day.

Devoted to the Fellowship

As those united to Christ we are also united to fellow Christians as brothers and sisters. Our love, care and unity should be evident in how we relate toward one another. Part of our devotion to the fellowship is the practice of the sacraments, baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Devoted to the Lost

As the gospel is proclaimed people are saved. We are devoted to the Word (the gospel) being shared as we seek to display and proclaim Christ Jesus to those who do not know Him.

Basis of Faith

I. The Word of God We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; Mark 13:31; John 8:31,32; John 20:31; Acts 20:32

II. THE TRINITY We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three Persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption. Genesis 1:1,26; John 1:1,3; Matthew 28:19; John 4:24; Romans 1:19,20; Ephesians 4:5,6

III. GOD THE FATHER We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. Luke 10:21,22; Matthew 23:9; John 3:16; 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Timothy 1:1,2 & 2:5,6; 1 Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6

V. THE HOLY SPIRIT We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. ​ John 14:16,17,26 & 15:26,27; John 16:9–14; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; Galatians 5:22–26

IV. JESUS CHRIST We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. Matthew 1:18–25; Luke 1:26–38; John 1:1, 20:28; Romans 9:5, 8:32; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:21–23;  John 20:30, 31; Matthew 20:28; Ephesians 1:4; Acts 1:11; Romans 5:6–8 & 6:9,10; Hebrews 7:25;  Hebrews 9:28; I Timothy 3:16

VI. REGENERATION We believe that man was created by God in His own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual and eternal death, which is separation from God; that as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners by choice and therefore under condemnation. We believe that those who repent and forsake sin and trust Jesus Christ as Saviour are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and become new creatures, delivered from condemnation and receive eternal life. ​ Genesis 1:26, 5:2; Genesis 3; Genesis 2:17, 3:19; Ecclesiastes 2:11; John 3:14, 5:24; John 5:30, 7:13, 8:12, 10:26;  Romans 9:22; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 19:3,20, 20:10,14 & 15, 21:18; Psalm 51:7; Jeremiah 17:9;  James 1:14; Romans 3:19, 5:19; Proverbs 28:13; 1 John 1:9; John 3:16, John 1:13; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 8:1

VII. THE CHURCH We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a group of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, works of service, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. Ephesians 2:19–22; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:19–21; Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:23–25

VIII. CHRISTIAN CONDUCT We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellow-men; that his/her conduct should be blameless before the world; that he/she should be a faithful steward of his/her possessions; and that he/she should seek to realize for himself/herself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:31; Romans 12:1–3; Hebrews 12:1–2; John 14:15,23-24; 1 John 2:3-6; 2 Corinthians 9:6–9; 1 Corinthians 4:2; Colossians 1:9–10

IX. THE ORDINANCES We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church, baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of the believer in water into the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18–20; Romans 6:3–5; 1 Corinthians 11:23–26; I Timothy 2:5; Romans 14:7–9,12

X. CHURCH COOPERATION We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another. The unity of the body of Christ is expressed between churches by mutual love, care and encouragement. True fellowship between churches exists only where they are faithful to the gospel. Acts 15:36,41; 16:5; 1 Corinthians 16:1; Galatians 1:1–3; Revelation 1:4,10,11

XI. THE LAST THINGS We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgement, the eternal joy and life of the righteous and the endless punishment of the wicked. Matthew 16:27; Mark 14:62; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; Philippians 3:20; 1 Thessalonians 4:15; 2 Timothy 4:1; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 1 Corinthians 15; 2 Thessalonians 1:7–10; Revelation 20:4–6,11–15

At Redeemer, we are convicted that plurality is both good and God-given for the health of both leaders and the church itself. Our desire is to see a plurality of elders who meet the biblical requirements found in Titus 1: 5 - 9, 1 Timothy 3: 1 - 7 & 1 Peter 5: 1 - 5.


Until we are able to appoint more elders within Redeemer we have set up an advisory board made up of the elders from City Church. The role of the board is to offer continued encouragement, wisdom and support to Redeemer.
