Habakkuk 2:2 - And the Lord answered me and said, “Write the vision and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it.”
Proverbs 29:18 - Where there is no vision the people perish.
We believe that the vision of a pastor and church must line up with the Word of God. In doing so it will automatically be in the Father’s will. It will take a spirit (attitude) of unity to ever take shape. The vision is something that must be caught, something of which you must take ownership. Jesus said in Matthew 12:25 that every kingdom divided against itself shall be brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. All of our combined efforts will bring about the vision of River Worship Center. We must all strive to remember that there are no big I’s and little u’s in the Kingdom of God. We should work to become “one body fitly joined together by what every joint (member) supplies” as stated in Psalm 133:1.
If we take the Word of God as truth, and we do, then we should strive to put others first and ourselves last. Imagine what River Worship enter would be if we all served each other… if the love of God that has been shed abroad in our hearts was evident to all who entered as stated in Romans 5:5… if everyone strived for peace and worked to love their neighbor as themselves … if we lived out scriptures like 1 Peter 4:8 which says “Love covers a multitude of sin”, and Romans 5:20, “Where sin abounds, grace does abound more”. This is the church that we want to be and a church where others want to attend.
We believe the effective church will strive to be whole in these three areas; Evangelism, Discipleship, and Worship, all of which are centered on the Word of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit, covered in prayer, and bringing glory to Jesus the risen Savior.
