ABOUT   The River

      John 7:38 says "He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."

    We at "The River" believe that God has called us to be the rivers of living water flowing throughout the Bitterroot Valley.  We believe that God has called us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with everyone in the valley. We believe that the only thing that brings hope, peace, fulfillment, joy, purpose and eternal life is a personal relationship with God.

    It is the purpose of this church to fulfill the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) bringing glory to the name of God and engaging people locally, regionally, nationally and around the world through the seven pillars of the church:

* Evangelism * Fellowship * Worship * Discipleship * Service * Leadership * Prayer *.

    We are called to reach a lost and dying world with the Gospel, disciple and exhort fellow believers, support like-minded church groups, and lift up the matchless name of Christ for God's glory in all we do.

Doctrinal Statement

      We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, and as the only basis for our beliefs and practices.  The doctrinal statement and stance of the Church shall be consistent with the articles stated in the pamphlet The Baptist Faith and Message adopted by the Southern Baptist Church on May 9th, 1963.
