Our Story

 

River of Life started its ministry in a little school gymnasium in Ranger, TX. In October 1999 the church body became an all-for-Christ ministry organization called River of Life Church. Services were held there for 13 months until the sanctuary of the new building was completed in Eastland.

Our Purpose

RIVER OF LIFE CHURCH EXISTS TO REACH PEOPLE WITH THE LIFE-GIVING MESSAGE OF JESUS THAT THEY MIGHT FULFILL ALL THAT GOD HAS PLANNED FOR THEM. LET JESUS BE EXALTED IN EVERYONE'S LIFE. 

The vision and mission can be summed up into FOUR things.

KNOW GOD
FIND FREEDOM
DISCOVER PURPOSE
MAKE A DIFFERENCE

   

 

The Vision

  • That all may be saved 
  • That all may become soul winners
  • That all may become skilled in the ministry of Christ

John 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

THE MISSION

  • To win the lost, to show Jesus
  • To disciple converts, to teach Jesus
  • To skill disciples with leadership abilities and qualities, to lead for Jesus

Matt 28:18-20 Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, babtizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age"
