River of Life is a family integrated fellowship

We ‘re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we’re all about. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel. He is the only reason that we do what we do — preaching, children’s ministry, outreach, and even singing.

If you were to ask us to describe ourselves in one sentence, we would say, “We’re a gospel centered, city focused, church community.”

These three elements create the DNA for us to live all of life for the glory of Jesus. As a Gospel Centered church, you will notice that we believe the gospel is so much more than a starting point for people. The gospel is all of life, and it shapes the very way in which we live life together with our family, friends, city, and the rest of the world. We want to view and live all of life through the gospel, which is the truth for all of us.


We exist to reach all people with the good news of Jesus Christ and to grow in his gracious love and restoration.


 We believe that faith in Jesus Christ, God’s only son, brings restoration to a broken and hurting world through the forgiveness of sins.


We believe that God has established the church to be a place that people can enjoy fellowship with others and experience God’s amazing love.


We believe that advancing God’s kingdom comes through reaching out to our communities by preaching the unchanging gospel within a changing culture.
