About River of Life Church

THE GREAT COMMISSION
We believe that it is the explicit message of our Lord Jesus Christ to those whom He has saved that they are sent forth by Him into the world even as He was sent forth by His Father into the world. We believe that all believers are ambassadors and witnesses, and that their primary purpose in life should be to make Christ known to the whole world.
(Matt. 28:18- 19; Mark 16:15; John 17:18; Acts 1:8; 2 Cor. 5:18-20; 1 Pet. 1:17; 2:11.)

THE BLESSED HOPE
We believe according to the Word of God, the next great event in the fulfillment of prophecy will be the coming of the Lord in the air to receive to Himself, both His own who are alive and all who have fallen asleep in Jesus. This event is the blessed hope set before us in the Scripture and for this we should be constantly looking.
(John 14:1-3; 1 Cor. 15:51-52; Phil. 3:20; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Titus 2:11-14.)

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe that a future period of great tribulation on earth will be climaxed by the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth as He went in person in the clouds with power and great glory to establish His millennial kingdom.
(Deut. 30:1-10; Isa. 11:9; Ezek. 37:21-28; Matt. 24:15-25, 46; Acts 15:16-17; Rom. 8:19- 23; 11:25-27; 2 Tim. 4:1; Rev. 20:1-6.)

CHURCH ORDINANCES
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper to be observed by all believers until His return.
(Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:19-20; Acts 10:47-48)

We believe that the ordinance of baptism is immersion of the believer in water as it sets forth the essential facts in redemption and it is a symbol of the death and resurrection of Christ and the essential resurrection to newness of life.
(Romans 6:4; 1 Pet. 3:21; Acts 8:26-39)

We believe that the Lord's Supper is a privilege afforded to all believers in the commemoration of our Lord's death until He comes.
(I Corinthians 11:23-28)
