"Our hope is that as soon as you walk through our doors you feel right at home. Our goal is for you to learn how to know God, find freedom, discover your purpose and make a difference"


We as The River want our community to find a home in God! We strive to show love like the Father by building a community of big-hearted people willing to love, grow, and serve! We encourage people to love like Jesus, grow in their walk with the Lord, and serve the church and the community faithfully with their time and resources! We want to be the vessel in the healing process from church hurt, addiction, pain and brokenness!



Jesus gave the vision for His Church:

​“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20

​We see ourselves as a launching pad, launching people into a genuine relationship with Christ, into their gifts and purpose.



We believe that Jesus is the only source of salvation, that because of His death on the cross there is complete atonement for our sins. 


Spiritual Gifts:

We believe in all gifts of the spirit and that God works miracles and transforms lives.  We are a Charismatic, Spirit Filled Church that believes in the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible:


We believe that the bible is the inspired word of God, given so that we may know Him and His character. It is to be our reference of Truth. "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." - Psalm 119:105
