Love God, Love Others, Know Jesus

We are a group of regular people pursing the truth and love of Jesus.

We believe in Jesus and enjoy a personal relationship with him.

Engaging in church community means keeping it R.E.A.L.(see below), inviting, choosing, helping, joining to see God at work.

We take time to enjoy God's mission by sharing the love of Jesus with others in the following habits:

Inviting: Share friendship, life and God's love with friends, family, and co-workers.

Choosing community: Join a life group to grow in wisdom and practice God's love through friendship, getting together, and Sunday gatherings.

Helping: We are helping ourselves and others to grow in heart transforming friendship with Jesus and with others.

Joining the mission: Serve one another in friendships, life groups, and to take up service projects in the community and around the world.

Seeing God at work: Praying and loving others to make new friends to form new life groups. Believing Jesus will multiply his love in the groups to become a new church community. 

Discover RVBC: Meet with Pastor Mark at our next Discover RVBC. 

All questions and conversations are welcomed. 

One hour session and refreshments will be provided.

Jesus was asked in Matthew 22, "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 

Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Jesus wants us to know God and love others. By connecting to community we learn, love, and share life with each other on Sunday and throughout the week.

Join us as we unpack God's gift of life together and get good encouragement for the week.  See you on Sunday at 11:00 am. The whole Sunday gathering experience takes 75 minutes. Come to feed your spirit. You belong here.

Life is better when shared with God and others.
