River Church is dedicated to evangelism and the building up of believers through the faithful preaching and teaching of the Word of God.  All of the ministries of the church are structured with that end in mind.  Our pastor is committed to the faithful, systematic, and expository preaching and teaching of God’s Word.

Our ministry is also very strongly family oriented.  We believe the family is the greatest tool for evangelism and Christian education, and it is our desire to fortify and strengthen the Christian home.  We believe the church cannot replace the family, but it can become the greatest support arm for the home.

​Our fellowship is also diverse in many ways.  The ages of our people span a number of generations, from senior citizens to young couples.  We have a strong and continuing ministry to the many military families stationed in our area.  And a number of different cultures are represented in our congregation. God’s blending of these diverse people is a wonder to behold.

​River Church has chosen to identify itself and fellowship with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia. In all things, at the local level and in association with our sister churches, our main goal is obeying the Great Commission as set forth five times in the New Testament.  We take seriously the Lord’s command to go into all the world to preach the gospel to every creature.  Only then, we believe, is the Lord glorified in our existence.
