Our goal at The River is to be a place where anyone can experience a life changing relationship with Jesus. We believe that God is alive and active in the lives of people and He desires that everyone would know Him and so do we!
The mission of The River Church is to help people find and follow Jesus Christ. Spending our lives for God and His purposes is THE most rewarding thing a human being can do. It gets even better...Living a life for God is amazing but living a life in relationship with the God who created the universe is the most fulfilling and exciting part.
THE RIVER CHURCH EXISTS TO HELP PEOPLE FIND AND FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST.
The River is full of real and imperfect people. As a community we are constantly growing to become the maximum expression of who we are to be on this earth. This is what God is calling us as a church to do: help people become the maximum expression of who God created them to be...in other words, helping each other find and follow Jesus.
