We believe God welcomes us. Just As We Are. Right Where We Are.
We seek to be a community that does the same. It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what you believe. We believe the tapestry of The Body of Christ is its beauty and genius. We want to create unity in diversity. Remembering what brings us together, not what drives us apart. We believe in being real and authentic. Here there is no need to pretend you have it all figured out. No kidding. We love to do real life together. Making each other better, together

What worship style should I expect at Riverbend?
Our freedom of worship will never surrender to fanaticism. We are forthright and expressive, but differentiate between the sound of praise and the noise of people. Our worship includes a variety of musical genres and expressions, all aligned to the purpose of exalting and worshiping the Lord God. Our worship aims to be both celebrative and intimate – most importantly, we desire to wholeheartedly honor God, follow the Spirit’s direction and express ourselves with our heads, emotions, and physical bodies.
Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Psalms 103:1
During corporate worship you may observe worship expressions that include:
• Raising of hands (1 Timothy 2:8)
• Clapping (Psalm 47:1)
• Dancing (Psalm 149:3)
• Musical instruments (Psalm 150)
• Spontaneous singing or prayer (Ephesians 5:19)
• Spiritual manifestations/gifts (I Corinthians 12:7-11)
But be sure that everything is done properly and in order.
1 Corinthians 14:40
