Our Values


Nothing is Sacred Except for Jesus

No method will ever get in the way of the message that we hold so sacred. No committee, bean supper or style of music will be more important than Jesus!


God’s word is our filter

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.


Everyone is Welcome.

It doesn’t matter what you look like, what your background is or political persuasion (if you even have one!). Riverbank Church values all people just as Jesus does.


Time, Talent, Treasure

The Bible says “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it”. Knowing this, we should be a people who are open handed with everything that He has provided.


Honor Jesus in all we do

We do things with excellence.Whether in our environments, print material or ministry in general. Why? Because it honors Jesus – plus, He deserves it! “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” Colossians 3:23


We Need Each Other

Not only does God command Christians to hang out and build community (Hebrews 10:24-25) – but, in order to reach Vermont and New Hampshire with the message of Jesus we will need each other so we can grow spiritually and build one on another up in faith!


More Cowbell!

This rescue mission matters to God – so we celebrate EVERYTHING for His glory! “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4 (NIV)


Saved People, Serve People

Serving others is simply following the example of Jesus. Who better to follow than Him? “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28
