FAQs

What denomination are you?

We are affliliated with the Missionary Church Denomination - being a part of the North Central District we always stress that everyone and anyone is welcome.

What can I expect when visiting River of Life?

You can expect to feel welcomed and accepted. We know that visiting a new church can be a little intimidating. We will not embarrass you, make you stand up, bug you for money, or ask you to do anything else you feel uncomfortable with. Come dressed as you are and expect high energy worship and to hear the message of Jesus presented in a creative and relevant way.

Is this a cult?

Great question. It is important to know what you are joining. A cult has the tendency to isolate itself from anyone/everyone else once there is a slight change in belief. At River of Life, we understand that many people may agree or disagree. The most important part is Jesus Christ and His role as the Son of God who is Lord over all and the ONLY Savior! After all, it is full of people singing songs and drinking the same beloved liquid (in this case, coffee). But the answer is no. Cults tell you what to believe, take away your freedoms and forbid you to leave. At Lifepoint, you're welcome no matter what you believe, and we want you to experience the freedom that comes from Jesus (including the freedom to leave whenever you want).

What about kids?

BRING THEM. There's a place at River of Life called KidZone where your kids can be surrounded by adults who are committed to a safe, fun environment. It's where kids can figure out what God and the Bible are all about.

What version of the Bible do you teach from?

We pull scripture from various translations of the bible as the Holy Spirit and revelation dictates.

Is the music too loud?

That's not even a question. Listen, we believe worship is supposed to be loud according to examples in the Bible (Psalm 50, 150, Revelation 5:10-11). Also we believe we have something worth shouting about (Jesus is alive!). HOWEVER, we strive to make sure that there is a difference between loud and noise. Our worship leaders and sound technicians do an excellent job of controlling the stage volume so that it is acceptable to everyone. We love the energy and the passion that comes from a room full of people singing to Jesus.
