We are a community of followers of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit and grounded in God’s Word. We passionately and prayerfully seek to bring glory to God our Father as we participate in His mission, which we distinctly express for River City Church as:
Awakening People to the Transforming Presence and Power of God's Love
Encountering the Love of the Father
We believe that knowing the Father’s overwhelming love for us is essential to an intimate relationship with Him and each other. We eagerly seek to experience His love, individually and in community.
Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit
We desire to move in the undeniable power of the Holy Spirit, exercising all the gifts of the Spirit, and experiencing ever-increasing transformation and freedom.
Participating in the Kingdom Mission of Jesus
We see the Kingdom of God as rooted in the words and works of Jesus. His love compels us — to love all people, to bring hope and healing in His name, to seek justice and mercy, and to reflect His heart for the poor and broken-hearted. We are committed to making the Good News of the Kingdom tangible, understandable and accessible.
Building the Family of Faith for Continued Growth
We desire to cultivate authentic relationships in loving community. We seek to nurture and equip the body of believers through disciple making, leadership development and church planting.
OUR GUIDING SCRIPTURE
"When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen." (Ephesians 3:14-21, NLT)
