At East River Church we have the God-given desire to provide a loving, caring, stable environment conducive to imparting the things of God into people of all ages. We desire to provide a place of refuge where people feel loved, needed, wanted, accepted, and secure. We believe that God has challenged us, is equipping us and blessing us with the privilege of imparting His Truths into the lives of others.
It is our commitment before God to see that every person is ministered to in their individual needs – spiritually, physically, and emotionally. In order to accomplish this we feel we must have facilities that are attractive, efficient, and functional; reflecting a spirit of excellence that will bring honor to God. We strive to instruct people in such a way that it can be clear that there is a God who cared enough to sacrifice his only Son, Jesus Christ, so that they may have life, and have it more abundantly through an intimate, personal relationship with Him.
It is our privilege to help people discover the tools that will help them develop their personal relationship with Christ by teaching and training in the principles of Christianity and by offering them opportunities to make an eternal difference for the Kingdom of God. In teaching people about the Holy Spirit and all the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we encourage them to experience His presence by allowing freedom for the Spirit of God to move through our services, keeping in order all things according to God’s Word.
We desire to help everyone realize the call of God on their individual lives so that they might submit themselves to God’s spirit and His direction and perfect will for their lives. We will offer opportunities for involvement in missions both foreign and home and strive to improve stewardship by encouraging people to give of their time, talents, and finances, knowing that God blesses those who are a blessing to others.
