About Us

Radiant is a Gospel-centered and intentionally multi-ethnic church in North Charleston, SC. Radiant began meeting weekly on Wednesdays in February 2017 and had its first Sunday service in June 2017.

Mission

Radiant exists to see people “Transformed by the Gospel for the Good of the City.” We believe that the Church should be a light that is seen by all those we interact with, and that light includes good works for “The City.” That means Christians should be present in and positively impacting families, neighborhoods, government, education, businesses, and the Arts. (Matthew 5:14-16)

Vision

Our ultimate aim as a church is to see the Great Commission of Jesus Christ fulfilled. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) We articulate that by saying our Vision is to see: “Every man, woman, and child have multiple opportunities to see, hear, and respond to the Gospel without coming or going anywhere.” This is a vision of total Gospel saturation in a community and is achieved through a reliance on the Spirit of God, work by the people of God, and it compels us to partner with other churches across denominational and cultural lines.

Core Commitments

At Radiant Church we are “God’s Family on Mission.” We put those values into action with our Core Commitments:

We Are Committed to God

We are committed to the rulership and authority of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Our commitment to God is displayed in finding our satisfaction, Joy, and purpose only in God who was revealed to us through the person and work of Jesus Christ. (Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22:37; John 14:8-9)

We Are Committed to Family

The Bible puts an eternal weight on our natural familial bonds, making those who don’t care for their family even worse than an unbeliever. (1 Timothy 5:8) As such we are committed to loving, serving, and enduring with our natural family when at all possible. (Romans 12:18)

Furthermore, salvation is not just a reprieve from punishment but an adoption into a heavenly, eternal, and spiritual family with rights and responsibilities to one another. As such, every believer is part of a global family that stretches backward and forwards in time across geographic, cultural, racial and language barriers. We commit to and love, forgive, and bear with our spiritual family for the Glory of God and the building up of His Church. (John 10:16; Ephesians 1:5; Mark 3:33-35; Romans 8:14; Romans 8:29; Romans 9:25-26, Hebrews 2:11)

We Are Committed to the Mission

God gave the church a corporate mission, and each individual believer a vital part of that mission. The Bible uses many metaphors to describe how we are live in this world: ambassadors, salt and light, soldiers, a royal priesthood, etc.. All of these titles have a common theme of calling believers to live distinct from this world (Holy) in a way that shows that we live for someone else and serve another King. And in doing so, we invite others to join us. We use our time, talents, treasure to point to the redemption offered in Jesus Christ.

And although evangelism and discipleship in all its various forms is the primary aim and activity of the church, the mission of God includes working to see all of human life brought under the lordship of Jesus Christ. This includes doing good works even on behalf of those who reject salvation. (Matthew 28:18-20; Matthew 5:14-16; 2 Corinthians 5:20-21; 2 Timothy 2:3-4; Ephesians 2:10)
