Purpose and Values

Our Mission

Our mission at River of Life has always been, and continues to be, to personally know the Lord Jesus Christ and to let Him be known.  We seek to do this by reaching out to those in our church community and the greater community that surrounds us. This mission is reflected in our current vision statement: Our Community for the Greater Community.

Our core values are the foundation of the ministries at River of Life. Everything we do is based on these eight values that are drawn from God’s Word.  These values are timeless, and if we hold true to them, we know they will ensure a healthy future for River of Life.
