Within the walls of a traditional New England church that saw its longtime membership diminish and depart in recent years, a new band of faithful is growing quickly. 

Redeemer Fellowship Church started 14 months ago with fewer than 20 people — including its pastor, the Rev. Chris Bass, and his wife, Brandi — in the former Phillips Congregational building on Mount Auburn Street. They will celebrate Christmas next weekend with nearly 100 members, drawn to a Gospel-driven style of worship that is springing up with increasing frequency around Greater Boston.
