Mission, Vision, Values
Riverside Church is a place where you will experience a love that is beyond anything this world knows of, the love of Jesus Christ. Our purpose, the very reason we exist, is to make and send disciples who love and live like Jesus.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20
Riverside Church exists to make and send disciples who love and live like Jesus.
