Our Beliefs

Riverside Christian Church is an ‘Independent Christian Church’ – meaning that we have no denominational ties. We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice and we believe that we are commanded to participate in fulfilling the Great Commission Jesus Christ gave in Matthew 28:18-20.

The Riverside Christian Church is a part of a worldwide fellowship of people who desire to simply be “Christians”, nothing more, nothing less. RCC was established in 2012 to be a New Testament Christian Church patterned as closely as possible to those churches found in the New Testament.

We believe in One God, the Father Almighty, who created all things visible and invisible.
(Genesis 1:1, James 1:17)

We believe in Jesus Christ: God’s one and only Son and our one and only Saviour; who was conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary; who was crucified on the cross, died and buried; and who rose again bodily from the dead three days later; who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father.
(John 1:14-18, John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5)

We believe in the Holy Spirit who dwells in every Christian.
(Acts 1:7-8, 1 Corinthians 3:16)

We believe in the Bible, God’s Holy Word, and we believe that the scriptures are inspired by God and applicable to our daily lives.
(Isaiah 40:8, Romans 15:4,  2 Timothy 3:16 )

We believe that we are saved by the amazing grace of an ever loving God and that through faith in Jesus Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Him as our Lord and Saviour and being immersed in the waters of Christian Baptism is the only way to enter into Heaven.
(Romans 5:1-2, Acts 3:19, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 4:14-16, Romans 6:1-7, 1 Peter 3:21, Mark 16:16)

We remember Christ’s sacrifice for us each Sunday as we participate in Holy Communion – making it the central part of our service together.
(Luke 22:14-22, Mark 14:22-25, Acts 2:42, Acts 20:7)

We feel that the best way you can truly understand what we believe and who we are is to join with us some Sunday. We know that once you come and experience our loving church family and our refreshing worship services, you will want to call Riverside Christian Church your “church home”.
