Our Mission

“Riverside is a fellowship in Christ joyfully committed to gathering for Him, growing in Him, and going with Him.”

As a church, we embrace a mission statement that is centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ:

  • Gathering for Jesus
  • Growing in Jesus
  • Going with Jesus

This is because Jesus is the very center of God’s plan and is preeminent over all things, including the church (Colossians 1:15-18). Therefore, our mission is to have Jesus and his message at the center of all that we say and do. We gather together for His glory, grow together in His strength, and go to the world with His presence, bearing His name and carrying His message of redemption

Riverside’s Core Principles

  1. Since we “gather for Him” we want our worship and ministry to be centered on God’s glorious accomplishment for us in the gospel, committed to the sufficiency of His word, and meaningful in all its parts.
  2. Because we “grow in Him” we seek to disciple one another prayerfully for our joy in Christ, intentionally develop spiritual leaders with the Bible, and fellowship authentically with one another.
  3. Knowing that we “go with Him” we prayerfully attempt to build relationships with others, share Jesus with those who need Him, and faithfully send and support those who have boldly gone out for the Lord.

Our Leaders

While Christ is the Chief Shepherd of His church, the Bible makes clear that God ordains Biblically qualified men to serve his church as elders. These men pastor our congregation through preaching/teaching, prayer, and oversight.
