Values and Beliefs
What do we believe…
We are an evangelical church. We believe the Bible to be God’s inspired word for us. We look to the Bible to discover the mind of God and therefore our life values. We believe in the great Biblical truth of the Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The atoning death and resurrection of Jesus, salvation by faith through God’s grace.
God calls us all to be concerned for our world, even though we are just passing through it.
Here at Riverlands we are concerned about such issues as social justice, poverty, freedom, equality and the environment.
We understand that the Bible does not draw distinctions between people’s spiritual and physical wellbeing, and we are committed to caring for both.
