The River's Edge is the Youth Ministry of the River Bible Church. We share the mission vision of the church, which is Exalt God- Equip the Saints- Express the Love of Christ. To Grow in Christ and Further the Kingdom of God. We do this through gospel-centered teaching and group discussion, followed by community and global mission.
RE-BORN The most important decision a student will make is their decision to follow Christ. Our goal is to present the message of the gospel to our students, that they will be RE-BORN of the Spirit of God and will have an intimate relationship with Christ.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
