What we believe
The mission of Riverside is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We see this happening in three ways. We connect to God and to other people. We grow in faith, and we serve the community and the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
What We Believe
As a part of the United Methodist Church, Riverside is connected to a denomination that values diversity. Within every United Methodist Congregation, there is room for a wide variety of opinions. Though there are Social Principles that help guide how United Methodists interact with the social world, these are not understood to be irrefutable stances. That being said, there are foundational beliefs that help define who we are as United Methodist Christians. More details can be found at www.umc.org.
The vision of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Riverside United Methodist Church envisions that happening as we connect, grow and serve in ways that make God's love present in and around every part of life. Our goal is to help people learn how to live life to its most exciting and fullest extent through a relationship with God and Jesus Christ!
As we do and help each other connect, grow and serve God's love becomes very real. That is what transforms the world and brings about the beauty of God's kingdom we all long for in our own ways. Through multi-media worship experience on Sunday mornings and accessible small groups and studies throughout the week we are growing into who God created us to be and helping others grow into who God created them to be as well.
Our invitation to you is this: Come and join with us as we connect with Christ, grow with each other and serve this community for a greater cause.
