More About Us
When you’re here be sure to stop by our CONNECTIONS ROOM to meet one of our pastors or overseers and pick up a small gift. Our services are contemporary – casual – so come as you are. We encourage the rest of the family to join us for the worship service. We are located at 21695 Elk Lake Road in Elk River, Minnesota.
River of Life is a church that believes in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are committed to the authority of Scripture and are people who strive to be a reflection of God’s love and grace. It is our desire to experience authentic relationships with one another as we grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
Be sure to visit our CALENDAR page for a list of upcoming events.
God’s Vision for River of Life:
- A place where everyone can find love, acceptance, help, forgiveness, guidance and encouragement.
- Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with thousands of residents in greater Elk River and surrounding communities.
- A large fellowship of God’s family, eventually numbering in the thousands, loving, laughing, and learning together.
- Developing people to spiritual maturity through Evangelism Training, One-to-One Discipleship, Small Groups, Bible Studies and Retreats.
- Once equipped, provide ministry opportunities for every member to personally reach out and touch the lives of others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. These opportunities are both local, through evangelistic outreach events and global through short-term mission trips.
- Sending dozens of career missionaries and church workers all around the world.
- Erecting a church building that will be in constant use. A building that is attractive yet efficient with a worship center seating hundreds, classrooms for bible study and training lay ministers, adequate space for teens and children that they can call their own, and recreational space for all. All this will be designed to minister to the total person spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially.
- Being known as a church that is led by God.
