Why We Serve

In order to be a part of what God is doing, we serve where He puts us

Our God is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is our Master and He is sovereign over all the nations. It is His plan for the ages that He is setting in motion. We serve Him because He has the plan and when by faith we come to Him and trust in His salvation, He makes us a part of it. He gives us everything that we need in order to serve Him well (gifts, talents, skills, opportunities, etc…).

At River of Life we want to be in the middle of God’s activity. Sometimes we do this by serving each other. At other times we look for ways to serve our community. We try to involve our children in these opportunities for service. Always, though, our service is for our King.

Every person who trusts Jesus as their Savior is gifted for service in the kingdom of God. These gifts are highly varied, and they take many forms when used by God. Our goal is to help every believer serve the Lord and others according to God's plan and purpose.

“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature, rather, serve one another in love.”


Galatians 5:13
