What We Value
The pursuit of God
We are hungry to know God’s presence, hear His voice and follow after Him.
We desire that Jesus’ love, mercy, grace, truth, purity, power, and integrity shine through all we do.
We honor Jesus as our Head and the Holy Spirit as our Counselor. We seek to be responsive to the Holy Spirit in life and ministry.
We aim first to grow personally in the knowledge of Christ and secondly to make disciples calling others into these same practices.
The Mercy of God
We believe that mercy is fundamental to all that God does in salvation. We therefore, aim to extend mercy to one another and to all whom we minister.
It is important to us to speak the truth, deal honestly, and live uprightly.
We believe that Christ has put significant leadership authority in the hands of the people. We aim to exercise this authority with selflessness, grace, caring, and sincere desire to build up the Body of Christ.
We are honored by every person whom God adds to the RiverTree. We aim to work together to build the church through maintaining mutual respect, open communication, determined cooperation, and believing and speaking the best about each other.
We wish to do nothing “for religious effect” but rather to operate in a natural, low key, “non-hype” pattern. We prefer to have fun while doing the ministry of Christ.
Being culture current
We reflect this through a popular style of worship music. We aim to develop an atmosphere of ease to speak, act, and dress in ways which can readily be responded to positively.
