From Pastor's Desk

Welcome to our website. River of Life is a Bible teaching church with a growing diverse congregation that loves God and people. Our goal is to worship our Lord Jesus Christ and serve you the complete Gospel message. So take your time and explore our site, as we introduce ourselves to you. My hope and prayer is that you will be blessed, encouraged and edified by the wonderful and godly things discovered on our site.

Our vision is to build God’s Church His way by reaching our community with Christ love and mercy, renewing minds and families, and releasing God’s people to impact the community and world with the grace of God while flowing on the river of life. You too can be a part of this wonderful and blessed outpouring of life.

So come and join us on Sunday mornings for coffee and a bagel, worship and praise, the Word of God and great fellowship with fantastic, fun-loving people. I hope to see you this Sunday!

God bless,

Rev. Octavio Rivera Jr., M.Div.
Senior Pastor
