We are a church that is centered around the good news of Jesus Christ. This good news is the promise that Jesus gives through his life (teachings and miracles), death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. This good news is that all who believe in Jesus Christ will have new life and become Children of God (the church). This is a beginning of a journey of faith.
Riverview is a Christian community made of people on this journey of faith. We take seriously the direction found in I John that the Christian life is a journey that has just begun in Jesus. “…now we are the children of God and what we will be has not yet been made known.” (I John 3:2) At Riverview we take seriously the call of Christ to come follow me, to spread the Word of our Lord, to love God and love others in the name of Christ, all the while submitting to the leading of God according to Scripture. As Christians we believe we have been called and equipped to serve Christ in the world and by the grace of God we will empower and encourage you to fulfill that mission either in this place or the community where you reside.
Personally I have just started serving Riverview as of the summer of 2018. What I have discovered at this church is a warm and welcoming community that desires to follow God’s will for their lives. We invite all to come and journey with us together as we seek to follow God’s leading.
