Our Church Vision

 


At River Valley, we envision a church that will nurture the spiritual growth of adults, youth, and children through Bible study, small group discipleship, and fellowship.  Our aim is to disciple individuals and bring them into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through the study and understanding of God’s Word. We aim to help them develop a Christ-like maturity, and to equip them for their ministry in the church, and to the world, in order to bring honor and glory to God’s name.
We envision a church whose members have an enthusiasm for studying, embracing, and applying the Word of God in their lives. Our aim is that members will have great expectations for living out God’s standards based on Scripture, founded in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and directed by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
We envision a church that will share the Gospel and bring people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in a true salvation experience.  Our aim is to be mission-minded with an enthusiasm for carrying out Christ’s Great Commission, both locally and globally.
We envision a church that is a fellowship created through the building of transparent, genuine, Christ-like relationships.  Our aim is to produce a healthy church by developing spiritual leaders and mentors that will generate relevant, life-transforming opportunities which will encourage service to others that strengthens the entire body and supports the entire family.
