Why We Learn

The more we learn about God's word, the better we get to know Him.

The Bible is God's word. He gave it to us so that we might learn who He is, what He is like, and how we are designed to live. The intent of our learning is not to just pack our brains full of knowledge. We learn so that we might come to know God Himself and live in a way that is consistent with who He is. It is the work of a lifetime and at each stage of life, God reveals something new to us.

As a result, the Bible is central to everything we do at River of Life Church. Our worship revolves around it. Our prayer reflects it. Our service to others is in response to its message. Our Bible classes (for all ages) explore what God has said and how we can apply it to our lives. Our ultimate goal is to enable each person to study God’s word on his or her own. We believe the Bible has the power to change us when the spiritual truth it contains is applied to our lives.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man (person) of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
