Our purpose and mission
Our purpose is to glorify the Lord. Our mission is the "Great Commission" as found in Mt. 28:19-20: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” We as a group of believers are covenanted together to strive to worship together on a regular basis. Our ambition is to admonish one another through the Word, and to minister to others through our services and through outreach. Our goal is to serve our Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and in truth with our lives as living examples of God's grace, and desire to testify of the saving grace of God's love to our community and to the world.
Our beginnings in 1944
Redwood Country Church was started through home Bible studies with the beginning families of Ben Books, Charles Winger, John Byer, Bill Mauch, and Sam Lenhert. In the mid 40's Charles Winger owned all the property between Redwood Avenue and the Rogue River. Having a desire to honor the Lord, he was willing to sell the land which the church needed for only one dollar. Toward the end of World War II the buildings at Camp White Army base near Medford were dismantled. Several from the church moved lumber from the base to the plot in Grants Pass for building the church. Most of the lumber itself was actually from the old chapel on the base. That is how God provided for our first church building. It still stands and is now used as a fellowship hall.
