As River Church has developed over the past decade there are several simple values that keep our vision alive and growing.
We aim to know Christ Jesus as fully as possible
We must abide in Jesus (John 15) and stay vitally connected to him as individuals, families and as a church. He is our Lord, our Shepherd, our Rescuer. Everything is for Jesus. So we as a church want to know him deeply, and walk intimately with Him every day.
We rely on the fullness of the Holy Spirit
Our simple way of saying all that we do is the working of God’s Spirit among us as we rely on Him for life, victory, guidance and maturity.
We are family
Our way of saying that Christian love in the church body is an essential part of who we are.
We are helping people grow
Another way of saying that we take seriously Jesus’ command to make disciples.
We must matter
Our way of succinctly stating that our presence in our community is important and that our ministry to Norman must be something that draws individuals to Christ.
