It's time to get started.

You've started in your Christian walk, so what's next?  We want to help you grow in your faith and become the person God made you to be. If you want to know what your next steps are in that journey, here are some ways we can help.

First  Steps

Attend church regularly. 

Worshipping and connecting with others in a community of faith is one of the best ways to grow in your relationship with God.  Being with other believers strengthens us spiritually.
Read your Bible daily. 

God’s word is the foundation for living the life of faith.  In it you will get to know God on a personal level and learn wisdom for living that will impact every area of your life.

Pray constantly. 

Prayer is our conversation with God. Through prayer we connect with Him and He addresses our deepest hopes and fears, provides direction for our lives and communicates His love for us.

Next Steps

The Purple Book Classes

The Purple Book is our 12 week course designed to help you get connected with foundational truths in God’s word. It is a prerequisite for membership at River of Life Church. The Purple Book is part of our mid-week Grow Time format on Wednesday nights at 7pm. Click here for the latest schedule.

Membership Classes

Immediately following the Purple Book class, is our membership class. The purpose of this class is to help you know the history, values and vision of River of Life Church.  Membership Classes  are offered on Tuesday nights at 7pm four times per year. After you complete 10 out of 12 Purple Book Classes, our staff will let you know when Membership Classes start!


Baptism is an important step that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation.  It symbolizes dying to the old and coming out a new creation.  This is an outward symbol of our inward faith, and is crucial to the life of every believer. We have baptism every quarter of the year.  We will post the latest Baptism information on our Events page about a month before Baptism Sunday.

Serving on a Team

One of the most unique places to find God is in serving. When you express your faith in a practical way and serve people, you connect with your purpose. We have many ministry teams in which you can get involved and begin to encounter God’s plan for your life.

Small Groups

Small groups are a critical aspect of developing a healthy and strong spiritual life. We believe that small groups have the potential to change the world.
