"Finding Faith Hope & Love in Jesus."
It all begins with the discovery of God: Creator. Infinite. Eternal. Powerful. Everywhere. In His Glory and Holiness, God created Humanity and tells us through His Word, the Bible, that we are Loved and Known by Him. In fact, God loves us so much, He sent His only Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and Source of abundant life (John 3:16). And Jesus invites us to Believe in Him, so that we can experience the overflowing reality of 'Rivers of Living Water' flowing from our hearts (John 7:38).
Responding to the discovery that we that are we are loved and known, we Believe in Jesus and Value God’s Love in everything we do. No, we are not perfect people, but we have found belonging and purpose in the family of God, The Perfect Father, with Jesus as our Savior and the Power of God's Holy Spirit within us and upon us for the asking.
We believe our Purpose is to Know and Love God in response, and to Glorify Him with our lives - in every area of our life! Regardless of our backgrounds, social status, ethnicity or gender, we come together as people united in this purpose.
As people united in God's Love, we
Gather to Worship in Love for God,
Grow in Community to Love One Another,
Go on Mission to Love the People God Loves.
Our Mission is to Love the People God Loves. We call this "Multiplying God's Kingdom One Heart at a Time".
This is our response to the Great Commission of Jesus to His followers found in Matthew 28:19-20 to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
How do we multiply God's Kingdom one heart at time? With love, we make as many disciples - Followers of Jesus - as possible, of as many people as possible, by any means possible. It is our hope to see people - including you - respond to God's Love by Simply Following Jesus in Faith, Hope and Love.
At River Community Church, we sum this up as "Simply Following Jesus". We are Followers, Disciples, Believers, Christians. And we are unashamed to label ourselves this way. We believe vibrant Christians will BE Disciples who MAKE Disciples, multiplying God's Kingdom, filling God's House, one heart at a time.
We want you to know that You Belong in God's family. You matter to God and you matter to us. God loves you and we love you too. Wherever you're at in your journey, you're welcome to Discover God and His love for you at River Community Church, and you will be accepted as an individual who is loved by God. This is what we think "Multiplying God's Kingdom One Heart at a Time" looks like. We're saving a place for you and hope to see you soon.
