The River Church started as a small group, meeting in homes of people who wanted to study the Bible and grow in the understanding of how we could show Jesus to our friends and family members in the community. We were born on Easter 2007, and are convinced the Church is more than a social organization; it’s the organic living, life-changing, culture-transforming extension of Jesus Christ. Our commitment is to be Christ to our communities, to think how Jesus would think, to feel what Jesus would feel and do what Jesus would do.
In January 2019, The River opened a campus in Solon Springs, Wisconsin at the Solon Springs Community Center. We are prayerfully committed to leading families and friends in the community to Christ and we look forward to the amazing blessings God has in store for Solon Springs!
We are motivated by strong convictions and values. We know that Jesus is Almighty. He is worth our highest affection and desires to be the Master of our entire life. Even though current culture believes there are “many paths to God,” we take Jesus at his word when he said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” We accept the Bible as God’s authoritative rule for faith and life. Some contend the Bible is merely mankind’s words about God. We believe the Bible is God’s Word to us.
We treasure opportunities to give grace. We like messy people…we’re messy ourselves. In our teaching and worship, we try hard not to put on a “church face,” but to honestly worship God. If you are thinking about going deeper in your spiritual journey, join us. We’d love to worship God with you.
