Who We Are
Rooted in beautiful Redlands, CA, Pastor Don and Sandy Wallace answered the calling God had on their lives to start a church in 1987. As children, they both attended local churches with their families and were born again at a young age. The two met in high school and married after graduating from Crafton Hills College. God has been a focal point throughout their lives and relationship from the beginning. The current location of Redlands Christian Center was acquired in the early 90's under Pastor Don and Sandy's leadership and is located on the corner of Church St. and Colton Ave. in Redlands. Every day lives are being changed at Redlands Christian Center and people are coming to know and grow in Christ Jesus.
In one God– Father, Son and Holy Spirit, creator of all things.
The Lord Jesus, true man and true God, the only begotten Son of God, was: conceived of the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary; dead, buried, resurrected; ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.
The Bible in its entirety to be the inspired word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct.
The only way for personal salvation of believers (being born again) is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ for both Jew and Gentile.
In sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness, purity, of heart and life.
In divine healing, through faith in the name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in redemption.
In water baptism, in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the new birth, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance, in the gifts of the Spirit and that evidence of the fruit of the spirit. We believe that all of these are available to believers.
God established marriage between one man and one woman as the foundation of mankind.
In the soon coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Bride (rapture).
In evangelism and missionary work in accordance with the Christian commission (Matt 28:19).
In the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to Earth to establish His Kingdom.
