About Us

Reaching Up

Our first value is to ‘reach up’ with our hearts and treasure Jesus Christ. We aim at helping believers treasure Jesus above everyone & everything this world can offer.What we mean by this is that our heavenly Father with the risen Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit in us is to be our greatest value. We hold that the first evidence of true followers of Jesus is that they “love the Lord (the best of all beings) with all their heart, with all their soul, with their entire mind and with all their strength” (Matthew 22:37) So, we define Christianity not just as sentiments toward God and Christ but true love (holy affections) that we demonstrate by growing in Christ, worshipping Christ, overcoming sin and growing in loving obedience to Christ…

Reaching In

Our second value is to ‘reach in’ toward other believers at The River to help them become more like Jesus.

What we aim to do here is to teach the people of The River to become and make disciples “…teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you,” and so carry out the command of Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20. This value is marked by two objectives: 1) to bring all believers to maturity and 2) enable mature believers to lead others, as determined by their individual gifts. So, we endeavor to bring God’s people to a place where they are closely following Christ and are becoming more like Him in all respects…

Reaching Out

Our third value is to reach out to those who don’t know Jesus Christ. This value is generally called evangelism, or sharing the gospel (good news) with those who have not yet heard it.
Jesus himself said; “follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). We aim at being intentional about sharing the greatest story that has ever been told as summarized in these words; “Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners” (1 Timothy 1:15). This means that God is determined to unleash the good news of the gospel through His people as they share, teach, live and preach the substance of that message…
