Who We Are

We are the body of Christ, called to Live Different, to invite people to come together, invest in each other & engage in what matters most because of Jesus.

RIVERSIDE CHURCH OF CHRIST

 
The Riverside Church of Christ is a family of faith that meets together every week in the name of Jesus with a sincere desire to live differently because of Jesus.
 
Jesus once said, “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor?  You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”  Matthew 5.13
 
As the body of Christ in this place, our mission & vision begins with Jesus.  Why are we here?  We want to be salt & light in our community so that people can experience a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  
 
Simply put, we want to live differently because of Jesus.  We believe that Jesus offers the best life imaginable.  By living according to His teaching we believe we experience a life of abundance.  
 
"I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." - Jesus, John 10.10
 
So who are we?  What is our church like?
 
We’re a loving & welcoming church that would love nothing more than to have the chance to meet you.  We are blessed to have young families, strong ministries for children & teenagers, an incredible young adults group, and loving members of all ages, backgrounds, & experiences.  We are known in our community as a loving, serving & welcoming church. 
 
We want to be a church that reflects the Kingdom of Heaven in every way.  We celebrate diversity. We believe every person is a person of immeasurable worth.  And we believe that everyone can use their God given gifts for the benefit of the church & the glory of God.
 
We want to be a church that is Spirit led, growing in our relationship with Jesus & sharing the love of God with those around us.  It’s our hope that when people come to Riverside what they find is a family of faith - a group of people who are striving to love God & love each other well.  
 
We also want to be a people of uncommon generosity.  We believe that we serve a generous God who has given us everything!  It’s our hope that our generosity reflects the goodness & kindness our Heavenly Father has lavished on us.  
 
When you come to Riverside on Sunday, you’ll see people just like you.  Some will be dressed up, others will be in their blue jeans!  You’ll enjoy great a cappella worship as we all gather to sing songs that speak of our praise to God for who He is & all He has done.  You’ll get to share in Communion, a moment in our worship every week where we pause & remember what Jesus did for us on the cross.  You’ll hear a message from the Bible that will help you in your daily life.  And then, if you’ll allow us, we would love to give you a small gift.  A "thank you" for coming to Riverside.
