Our Mission

To glorify God by reconciling lives through the love of Christ.


There are three important ways that we live out our mission:
Go Up toward the goal of knowing Christ fully. (see Philippians 3:13-14)
Go Deep together in our walk with Christ. (see Ephesians 4:11-13)
Go Out building relationship bridges in our community and world that lead people to Christ. (see Matthew 5:16)

We want to encourage, challenge, and strengthen each person in Riverwood to:

Go Up, pursuing greater intimacy with God through prayer, His Word,
and growing in personal faith.

We Go Deep by helping each other to grow in our lives with God.  This is why small groups like our Gospel Communities are so important.

Go Out is each of us taking the initiative to honor Christ in our personal relationships in the workplace, neighborhoods, and beyond. (see 1 Peter 2:11-12) And we also work together to do initiatives of love in our community that can make a difference for people and bring honor to Christ.
