River Christian Church is a community of believers who seek first to win people to Jesus Christ, train believers to become disciples who are then unleashed into north Florida and the world to share the Good News.
Where We Come From
River Christian Church or “RCC”, as we are referred to, is part of the Restoration Movement. This group was formed in the late 1700s to early 1800s, not in an attempt to reform any particular denomination, but rather in an effort to restore the “original” church of the New Testament.
Our journey began with the belief that a New Testament church must have local leadership in order to properly minister to its members and community. Eleven families began this journey on March 1, 2015, with no pastor, no worship leader, and no prior organizational plan.
Within four weeks we had incorporated and, through a series of God-ordained events, began to meet in a rent-free vacant building. As it turns out the owners had been praying that God would use their vacant building for His Glory.
Who We Are
RCC is a healthy, growing church on a mission to win people to Christ, train people to be disciples, and unleash disciples to impact the world. We are a passionate, Christ-loving church body that believes the Bible is God’s divinely inspired Word and we are to encourage each other to live and worship by it.
Where We Are Headed
RCC is on a mission to see Clay County transformed. We believe that encountering the love of the Father, living in the power of the Holy Spirit, participating in the Kingdom mission of Jesus, and building the family of faith for continued growth is essential to becoming the people God has created us to be.
