About God About Baptism
About the Church
We believe that God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, and that God is still creating. God is the spiritual parent of every person and the Lord of all history. God's desire is love and wholeness for every person and all creation.
About Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God's Son and the full expression of God's love for us. By placing faith in Christ's death, we find forgiveness for our sins, and through His resurrection, we receive eternal life.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is the living presence of God with us and in us. The Holy Spirit is the power of God to cleanse, heal, inspire and empower. The Holy Spirit is present and at work within the church today.
About the Human Condition
We believe that we are created in the image of God, but left on our own are basically vain, proud, self-seeking and self-serving people who often care for ourselves at the expense of others. But in Jesus Christ, we see a God of boundless love. We believe God accepts and forgives us. God's grace is free and cannot be earned, but it must be received and embraced.
About the Christian Life
The biblical concept of the life of faith is that we are to grow in grace toward the image and example of Christ. It is God's Spirit that leads us and empowers us toward this goal. It compels us into an authentic love relationship with God that results in a radical love for neighbor.
We believe that baptism is an outward sign of God's love and acceptance of us into the community of faith. As a interdenominational church, River Hills celebrates children and adult baptisms for professing members. Baptisms are celebrated as a communal part of Sunday worship, engaging the entire congregation.
We believe the church is the people of God "re-membering" Christ Body in the world today. This is why the church is called The Body of Christ, each "member" is part of that body...hands, feet, heart.
About Eternal Life
Eternal life is the ultimate gift of God which begins through faith in Christ. Eternal life begins with salvation. The Christian is promised abundant life this side of heaven, and life lived in the presence of God forever.
