The River's Edge Church is a community of believers in relentless pursuit of the life God has for each one of us, corporately and individually.


This church is committed to seeking ALL that God has for those who love Him, obey Him, and desire to know Him. We believe that each believer should actively pursue God's direction for their life and live in obedience to that call. The fullness of God and His presence is a top priority to our church family, and we are committed to the uncompromising purity of the Message of the Gospel.


We believe in you! We are here to come alongside of you and encourage you in all that you do in this life. We believe that Jesus Christ purchased the abundant life, the Good Life, for each of us! We WANT YOU HERE and we want to make this a place where you feel like family, feel supported, and feel Alive in the presence of God.


Our affiliation is with the FourSquare Church. To learn more about the vision and core beliefs of the FourSquare Church, click HERE.

Whether in-person, through social media, or a good old-fashioned phone call, we want to hear from you, pray with you, and connect with you as we all continue on this journey together of drawing closer to God.
