Redemptive Unity

Check Out The New Podcast With Our Teaching Team

Thinking Biblically is a podcast featuring the Perimeter Church teaching team. Listen in as they discuss in-depth the biblical truth surrounding current topics of our day.



Perimeter Church staff—Jimmy Kim, Director of Redemptive Unity, and Davon Stack, Director of Jhi—have an honest discussion on what it means to feel unheard and misunderstood. 


For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ…that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. 
1 Corinthians 12:12, 26-27



What is Redemptive Unity? In short, it is the natural response to the saving nature of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As sinners saved by grace into one body, the church, we believe there is to be a oneness, a unity, that must result from faith in the cross of Christ. At Perimeter Church we want to reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity in our ten-city reach. At the center of our oneness is our faith in Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

The purpose of Redemptive Unity is to bring together our diverse congregation to ask God to work in and through Perimeter Church, to do what only He can. In today’s often tense and divisive climate we plead and depend on God to do that work of redemptive unity, bringing into relationships people who, based on the world’s standard, have no business of being together. We aim to do this through steadfast prayer, personal equipping, and community engagement.

9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

Rev. 7:9-10 (ESV)


We believe that gospel centric, grace-based relationships, and conversations are crucial in the fight against racial injustice.
