We seek to make followers of Jesus Christ who love God, love people, and change the world.
We believe the most important thing in life is to love God with all of who we are and to grow in our relationship with Him. People need to know this. We desire for people everywhere to come to know and love God through the life changing power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and then to glorify Him with their lives.
We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of the Christian life. We do this by bearing one another’s burdens, by praying for one another, by participating in community groups, and by serving others as the body of Christ
We believe that God has called us to be a movement beyond ourselves that serves our community and plants the Gospel around the world. We believe that every Christian is created and gifted for ministry and has been given a mission. We are called to live as missionaries to share the message and the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors, in our community and beyond our borders.
Make Disciples: We seek to Make Disciples by living as Sent Missionaries and Planting the Gospel from here to the ends of the earth.
Make Disciples Jesus has given a mission to His church: Make Disciples. We believe this is not only the mission of The River, but also the mission of every church. We are committed to this being the main work for us as a local church. Everything we pursue must support this mission.
Send Missionaries We are called to live as missionaries to share the message and the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors, in our community, and beyond our borders.
Plant the Gospel We are called to plant the Gospel wherever we go as disciples. Our desire is that would happen locally and result in more campuses and churches planted in our area; and globally and result in churches planted to the ends of the earth.
