What you can expect at RVC
Believing (Worship) You will believe more deeply through worship.
We desire to worship God in a style that is intimate, contemporary, expressive, and life changing. Worship through song is a focal point of our worship experience, so we begin most meetings, large and small, in our church with 20-30 minutes of worship. We also believe that worship has a powerful evangelistic impact on the lives of non-believers.
Befriending (Sharing Christ) You have new friends waiting for you.
We desire to preach the gospel and encourage people to commit their lives to Jesus Christ. We desire to build authentic relationships with people who do not follow Jesus and invite them into our community of faith so they can explore the Christian life. We also desire to demonstrate God’s mercy in our community through acts of kindness such as ministering to the poor and serving in practical ways.
