"we exist so people can be found in jesus."

- River Of Life Family Church

we are passionate about our mission

"God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him." 

- John 3:17

So people can be found in Jesus.

our passion moves us to action

What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? - James 2:14-16

We walk the talk.

we are in community

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. - Hebrews 10:25

Life is better together. We are stronger together.
