MISSION OF THE RIVER COSHOCTON CHURCH
(1) To edify Gods people and bring them into a closer walk with Jesus Christ.
The Mission of The River Church is to provide prayer, discipleship and Godly counsel from the Word of God as well as bring correction when needed to all those seeking to experience a deeper walk with Jesus. Our goal is to provide an environment where you can grow into all God has for you.
(2) Local Evangelism and Outreach.
Jesus told Believers to “Go into all the Earth and Preach the Gospel” (Mark 16:15). As a local Church we believe one of our Callings in the city of Coshocton is to reach those who are lost and do not know the Lord. We believe “Soul Winning” and “Outreach” is not just a program, but a passion that should be inside the heart of every Believer.
(3) Discipleship and Maturing the Believer.
Jesus told us to “Go make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Our mission is to bring those new or weak in the Faith into a maturity through Teachings, Classes, Follow Up and 1 on 1 instruction. We wish to see every Believer become a productive member in the Kingdom of God and bear eternal fruit!
