"Proclaiming the Word of God, for the Glory of God; to Exalt Christ and Redeem Sinners."
Riverside Church is a body of believers dedicated to the centraility of the gospel and the glory of God. We believe that our greatest call is to "be" the church so that the testimony of Jesus Christ might be magnified throughout our community and around the world. Therefore, we give great care to the exposition of God's word, clear and faithful proclamation of the gospel, and a call to continual repentance in the lives of our members. We are sinners saved by grace seeking to faithfully represent the marvelous transforming power of God's grace as it is received by faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross. It is because of the completed work of Christ that we strive to be testimonies of the continuing work of the gospel in our lives both individually and corporately. We invite any and all to come and join us in the gospel call to be light to this world by treasuring Christ above all things and seeking to magnify God's name among the nations.
“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (2 Corinthians 4:6–7 ESV)
