The mission of Red Letter Living is to challenge all people to become greater followers of Jesus Christ.

Thousands of individuals and hundreds of churches have taken have taken on one of our 40-day discipleship challenges and are living lives more fully and in step with Jesus.

The Red Letter Story

Red Letter Living was started by Zach and Allison Zehnder to create resources that are simple to understand, challenging in concept, highly practical, but always squarely aimed at Jesus. Christians can have good intentions all day long, but intentions without precise aim at exactly the one we are trying to be like, Jesus, will always lead to unintended consequences.  God has been gracious to all, and being compelled by that grace, we believe that following Jesus is the single greatest opportunity of our lifetime!

Our Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.

We believe that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that every person is sinful and that the grace of Jesus Christ, given to us through His crucifixion and resurrection, is what brings salvation to us.

We believe that Jesus is coming back to fully restore His kingdom, and until then, we each can play a role in bringing His kingdom to this earth right now.

We believe that each of us can be greater expressions of Jesus to a world that desperately needs to experience Jesus.
