The River is an inter-denominational, inter-cultural, full-gospel church with a passion to see God transform people’s lives through an intimate, personal relationship with the living Savior, Jesus Christ.
Our desire is to introduce everyone to God’s real love, as expressed through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the new life He’s called us to in Him.
We help every Christ follower identify their God-given spiritual gifts, then empower and encourage them to serve and make Christ-followers of others.
