Two Costa Mesa churches, Soul Survivor and Redemption, are merging.
Soul Survivor was founded 10 years ago and is known for working with the homeless and community nonprofits. Redemption is a 3-year-old church that meets in a space on Airway Avenue owned by a large local church, Rock Harbor.
Redemption and Soul Survivor will continue together under the name Redemption Church.
According to a news release, the pastors of the two churches met a few months ago and realized soon after that they shared the same visions and values, and they could do more good by merging their congregations.
