What is the community like?
Our church is home to the young, the old, and all in between. We love the mix! It's the way God intended church to be. We all have something to learn from one another and different ways to be be a blessing to each other and the church. At River of Life we love to build one another up like a family. Unity is important here. We strive to be true brothers and sisters in Christ.
What if I'm not a Christian?
Our doors are open to everyone. We understand that walking into a church, for perhaps the first time, can be intimidating, but we are here to share the life and love of Jesus with you. Accepting Christ doesn't always happen right away. For some people it takes time, and that's okay! If you have questions, ask away! When you make the decision to accept Jesus, our Pastor or someone on our Prayer Team would love to pray and celebrate with you.
How is my local church affiliated with the Assemblies of God?
Within the fellowship of the Assemblies of God there are two classifications of churches - General Council affiliated churches and district affiliated churches. General Council affiliated churches enjoy full autonomy, having developed to the point of where they are self-governing and self-supporting. These fundamental principles have been catalysts for growth in the Fellowship. District affiliated churches are those which have not yet developed to the point where they qualify for full autonomy. All assemblies are required to adhere to the Statement of Fundamental Truths and a biblical pattern of conduct. Learn More
What distinguishes the Assemblies of God from other Christian groups?
The Assemblies of God is an evangelic protestant fellowship that believes God exists in three persons -- the Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit. The most definitive identification of the Assemblies of God is Pentecostal. Just as it was founded in 1914, the Fellowship remains a full gospel church—one where the fullness of the Holy Spirit is welcomed, nurtured, and taught. This includes speaking in tongues as the initial evidence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Other manifestations of the Holy Spirit embraced by the church include: messages in tongues with interpretations, prophecies, word of knowledge, and the complete gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit as indicated in the Bible. Among Pentecostal churches—the Assemblies of God is largest worldwide with over 52 million constituents.
