A Place To Call Home

We believe that the Kingdom of God is a mixture of every tribe and tongue. We do not discriminate against race, culture or social status. We encourage people to come as they are when they Worship with us. Our heart is to see every person who attends our services to become what God has destined them to be.


Worship at The River is dynamic and Spirit led. While attending you will learn the importance of worship and the joy that comes with worshiping the Father in Spirit and in Truth.

The Word

Sermons are prepared under much prayer and study of the Bible. The River is where you can always expect to find Spirit filled and inspired preaching and teaching of the Word of God.


We base our Church off of the Book of Acts. We give the Holy Spirit preeminence in our services and believe that God is still moving in the Earth today with miracles, signs and wonders.

What We Believe

At The River Church, we believe the Bible to be our sole, all-encompassing guide and rule for both faith and practice. Therefore, we adhere to and believe the following tenets...

The Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are the divine revelations given from God and received by Man, and as such, are the only such revelations that are inspired and infallible. The Bible is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and morals. The Word of God is the direct revelation of the will of God for all men and for all time. The Scriptures were plenary-verbally inspired, that is the Holy Spirit breathed upon men the very words and thoughts He wanted in conjunction with the writers personalities, traits and emotions. The Holy Spirit guarded and preserved each thought, phrase and word from any error, omission or inaccuracy.

II Timothy 3:16-17
Hebrews 4:12
Exodus 24:4
II Peter 3:2

Our God is revealed in Scriptures as the eternal Godhead, the Trinity, who has shown Himself as one God, existing in three persons – The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. The Godhead is distinguishable but indivisible in essence; co-eternal, co-existent, co-equal in nature, attributes, power and glory. God is one undivided and invisible essence, yet with three eternal distinctions: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4
Isaiah 48:16
Matthew 28:19
Ephesians 4:4-6

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, the 2nd member of the Godhead, who pre-existed with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Through the Incarnation and Virgin Birth, Jesus took upon Himself the form of Man, thus revealing Himself as the God-Man. Jesus Christ was sinless, perfect, crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended, glorified and He will come again to earth a second time. He is the perfect Mediator between God and Man because in the person of Christ is the fully divine and the fully human. Of the same substance with the Father as to His divinity, yet of the same substance with us as to His humanity. Perfect in deity, perfect in humanity.

Colossians 1:15-19
Philippians 2:5-8
I Timothy 2:5-6
John 1:1-3, 14-18

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He is co-equal, co-eternal and co-existent with the Father and with the Son. His ministry upon the earth is to convict and covert man as well as be the great paraclete (comforter, counselor, helper, intercessor, advocate, strengthener and standby) to the Church. The baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus to all believers and is received subsequent to and in addition to the New Birth. The initial evidence of speaking with other tongues, as well as other manifestations described in Acts 2, accompanies this experience. Whereas there is one initial baptism, there are many subsequent infillings of the Spirit. The purpose of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is so that we, the believers, may have power to be witnesses.

Matthew 3:11
John 14:16-17
Acts 1:8
Acts 2

Man is a created being and was made in the likeness and image of God (both male and female). But, through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world and passed upon all men. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. Salvation is the free gift of God to Man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. This salvation experience occurs when an individual confesses with his mouth that Jesus is Lord and believes in his heart that God has raised Him from the dead.

Romans 5:12-21
Romans 10:9-10
John 3:16-17
I John 3:8

The Lord Jesus Christ, Head of the Church, established two ordinances for the Church to follow: Water Baptism and Communion. Baptism in water, by full immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord. While it is not necessary for salvation, it is for all believers. This ordinance is an outward sign of an inward work. It symbolizes a believer’s identification with Jesus in His death, burial and resurrection.

The ordinance of Communion is also a commandment of the Lord Jesus that must be received consistently until His return. Only believers can come to the Table of the Lord, which consists of the bread and the cup. The bread speaks of His body, which was broken for us. The cup speaks of His blood that was shed for us. Both elements are witnesses of the New Covenant believers now enjoy while prophetically declaring His soon return.

I Peter 3:21
