Our Core Values

God’s Word.
We value the Word of God. We believe it is infallible and the final authority on spiritual matters.

Intimacy with God.
We value an intimate, personal relationship with the living God. Our spirited worship, fervent prayer and openness to spiritual gifts are a reflection of our deep longing for a genuine, spiritual, intimate walk with God.

Lost People.
We value lost people. God’s purpose in coming to the earth was to seek and save the lost. Lost people matter to God. Lost people matter to us. Our primary purpose as a church is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our family, friends, community, and world at large.

The Family.
We value the family. In a society that has witnessed the breakdown of the traditional family unit, we place a strong emphasis on nurturing and strengthening families. Whether you’re part of a tradition or single-parent household, part of a blended family or you are a single or divorced adult, ROL is committed to your spiritual growth.

Community among Believers.
We value community among believers. The true Biblical community provides an environment among believers where spiritual growth, ministry, and accountability flourish. At River of Life Church, we seek to encourage and cultivate connectedness and camaraderie among God’s people.

Leadership Development.
We value personal and spiritual growth. At River of Life Church, we place a priority on helping people reach their fullest potential as leaders. We devote time and energy as a church to developing leaders for the Kingdom of God, our community, and the world.

We believe and do our best to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Apostles. We believe the New Testament Church, described in the Book of Acts, is God’s model and pattern for every church. Acts 2:38 describes the new birth message and Acts 2:42 outlines our model for discipleship. For an in depth doctrinal statement click here.
