Why the Red Doors?

doorThe history of the Red Door goes all the way back to the Israelites’ escape from Egypt. When the angel of death was sent in the tenth plague, the Israelites painted the doorposts of their houses red with the blood of sacrificial lambs to prevent the angel from entering their houses.

Over the centuries, the red door has become a symbol of sanctuary and refuge around the world, so we paint our doors red as a sign that our church is a place of sanctuary and refuge for all who enter it. It’s a message for those of us who are lost and tired, inviting us in for rest and a message of hope.
