Our Mission, Beliefs & Vision

The Vision

The mission of River of Life Church  is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,  Son, and  Holy Spirit.

The Mission

The vision of River of Life Church is to create a community of authentic believers and to witness a city transformed by the life changing reality of the gospel, as people come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Our Beliefs

We are a non-denominational church rooted in Biblical teachings. We believe there is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
