River Church
Mission Statement

We aspire to create experiences where the power of God
is free to work in our lives.  We help people connect with God
through equipping, building, serving and loving them through
Christ Jesus.  River Church wants to invest in life change through
discipleship, evangelism, worship and love.

Section title

We strive to build strong discipleship toward prayer, fasting,
worship, and helping others to grow and connect with God.
River Church desires to preach the gospel to the lost and to develop
spiritually healthy Christians. We love the unbelievers, care for
the sinners, and allow the power of God to do miracles in the lives
of the people. “For Even the Son of Man did not come into the world to
be served, but to serve” Mark 10:45. River Church is a light within the
community, and reaches out to those in need, by investing in them to
bring about new life change.

Our Statement of Faith
Our Statement of Faith
We Believe:
In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.
In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.
That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.
That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.
Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.
In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.
In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.
In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.
In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.
In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.

The Church of God believes the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired and that it is the written Word of God. The Church of God has adopted the following Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine.
