This Presbyterian Church has been part of the Ephrata community since 1910. Today, as part of the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO), Our Redeemer is a community of Christ-followers striving to live out our faith through Christ-centered thinking.

We are the redeemed – saved by God’s grace and not because of any merit on our part.  God chose us in Jesus Christ to be adopted as his children. The Bible is the written Word of God and proclaims to us the Good News of Jesus Christ, who alone is the way to our adoption as God’s children.

Our Essential Tenets are spelled out for us as an ECO congregation.  If you would like a clear, in-depth expression of these beliefs click here.

We attempt to live out the relational nature of the Triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God loves us and sent His Son. We are to live in love toward one another.

Pastor

Mark Bassett

Since 2013, Mark Bassett has pastored Our Redeemer Presbyterian Church. Mark has experience all across the U.S., hailing from Detroit, graduating from Nyack College in New York as a philosophy major, and earning his Master’s Degree from Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, New York. Ordained in the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA), Mark has served churches in New City, New York; Blaine, Washington; and Moses Lake. The Bassetts spent two years as missionaries in Germany in the mid-1990s. His six years as teacher/counselor/principal at Moses Lake Christian Academy, and a decade serving in Grant, Adams, and Lincoln Counties for Assured Hospice as chaplain and patient care representative have given Mark a depth of understanding for the needs of a community. He teaches and counsels, leads youth to an understanding of their faith, and regularly challenges congregants to recognize the gift of Jesus in their lives and in the life of the congregation. Come any Sunday and meet Mark at a 9 a.m. service!
