Our Beliefs


We believe Scripture, the Bible, is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God, that God is the ultimate source for Scripture. We believe Scripture is the final authority in every area it addresses for every individual Christian, as well as for the church collectively.
(2 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 1:21)


We believe there is one God who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all things were created by Him and for Him.
(Deuteronomy 6:4Isaiah 45:21-22Matthew 28:19Colossians 1:16)


We believe that God the Son became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ; That He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life (for He is without sin), died a substitutionary death for all mankind, was raised from the dead the third day, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God until His enemies are made His footstool.
(John 1:114Matthew 1:18-252 Corinthians 5:211 Peter 3:181 Corinthians 15:3-4Hebrews 10:12-13)


We believe the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe the Holy Spirit regenerates, indwells, and seals believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that He empowers them to live as His witnesses. We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in Scripture are available to and active in His church today.
(John 14:16-17John 16:7-11Titus 3:5-6Romans 8:91 Corinthians 6:19-20,
Ephesians 1:13-14Acts 1:8Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, 1 Peter 4:10-11)


We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity, and worth. According to His purpose and design, God created  them to fulfill distinct but complementary roles in the contexts of marriage, family, and the local church.
(Genesis 1:26-28Ephesians 5:22-6:41 Timothy 3:1-7)


We believe that, as a result of the Fall, all people are sinners by nature and in need of a Savior, and that Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world, that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Him. We believe that all who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved eternally. This is the Good News of the Gospel.
(Romans 1:16Romans 3:10Romans 3:23Romans 5:18-19Matthew 1:211 John 4:14John 14:6Acts 4:12Ephesians 2:8-9Romans 10:9)


We believe in the resurrection of the dead. Believers will be raised to eternal life in Heaven, and unbelievers to shame and everlasting contempt in hell.
(Daniel 12:2John 5:25-29Revelation 21:1-22:5)


We believe there is one Church, the body of Christ, consisting of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. We believe that each local congregation is an expression of that universal church. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Ephesians 4:41 Corinthians 12:12-13Revelation 5:9Acts 2:42-47)


We believe in a literal return of Jesus Christ to the earth and for the consummation of God’s redemptive plan. We live in daily expectation of His imminent return.
(Jude 1:14Revelation 19:11-16Revelation 20:4)


An Early Statement of Faith for the Christian Church

“We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic [universal] church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.”


At River Community Church, we are an independent, non-denominational Christian church in voluntary partnerships with Risen Life Church (Sending Church)Redemption Hill Church (Sister Church), and The Send Network, all who share our vision To Be People United To Multiply God’s Kingdom One Heart at a Time through evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication through church planting and missions. As a Send Network church planting partner, we also agree with the Baptist Faith & Message of the Southern Baptist Convention.
