"I have been part of the River of Life family for approximately 9 years. My husband and I prayed for God to lead us to a place where we could raise our children to learn about the power and fullness of the Spirit of God and to see and feel the manifestation of the Holy Spirit.
He led us to River of Life, where the love of God and the power of the Holy Spirit is felt when you walk through the doors; where there is freedom to worship; and encouragement and guidance to walk in the calling and ministry that God has placed in our lives.
River of Life is where our children have been taught through the word of God how to have a personal relationship with God that has empowered them to become the young men of God, leaders and ministers that they are today.
...Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17). That Spirit is here at River of Life."
"God is always in control and He had been setting us up (Proverbs 8:22-23) for our journey to River of Life for a long time.
When my husband, Phil, and I walked through the doors of River of Life we felt so much love and peace. I felt like I was reunited with another part of my spiritual family and knew that our Father had purpose for us to do. I love the people of River of Life with an undying love, appreciate all they have to offer to the body of Christ, and am so glad to be part of it!"
"The reason I belong to River of Life is because I believe that God has placed me and my family here. I feel that each of us has an important calling and ministry at River of Life.
I see River of Life as a refuge for those who are hurting or are in need of healing. There is a sense of genuine love and fellowship at River of Life. There is something special about the people at River of Life, who are committed to serve as part of the Body of Christ. When anyone has a need, their corporate prayers are felt to be effectual and powerful.
River of Life is a Bible-believing, full gospel church that is not about religion, but about a personal relationship with God. Services at River of Life are not pre-programmed, but are ordered under the direction and in the flow of god's Spirit, whose presence can be felt and experienced as it is ushered in by the anointed live praise and worship. Also under that anointing, the poignant messages brought by Pastor Ed Sharp are the uncompromised, true word of God."
"Four years ago, my wife, Linda, and I walked into River of Life and felt like we had come home from a long journey.
It felt like we were among family and that we were loved."
I'm married, 3 children and 7 grandchildren. I have been in church since the age of 3. God healed me of stage 3 censer.
I attend River of Life because God has placed me here. The love and friendliness of the people here is tremendous. God is moving and NOW is the time to do something for His kingdom.
I have been serving the Lord now for 37 years. I have ministered on and off since 1997. God has really blessed our family.
What I love about River of Life is that it is truly a church where everybody is some body. This is a church family where the love of Christ is felt from person to person as the Spirit of God flows so free.
After deciding to close the doors of the small church we were attending, our search for a new church family led us to River of Life. Gina and I have been attending this fellowship for a little over a year now and feel blessed to worship the Lord with this wonderful church family. We were immediately attracted to the freedom that Holy Spirit has in the church services. God’s presence is evident and His love is abundant in this fellowship…you feel God’s love and presence when you walk through the doors!
I’ve been married to my husband, Kent, for 35 yrs. We started dating and attended church together in high school, married, and raised our two children in the same church for 36 yrs. We have a granddaughter, Grace who is 6 yrs. old and starts Kindergarten this year.
A little over one year ago Kent, myself & the remainder of our small Full Gospel Church closed the doors and started looking for another church to attend as a group. We visited a couple churches before the Lord lead us to The River of Life Church. We wanted a Full Gospel Church with a Five Fold Ministry, where the love of God was present and all are loved and welcome. Everyone was so friendly and after the first service was over we looked at each other and said… “This is where the Lord want us to be…this is the one.” We are now a part of a wonderful church where our pastor looks to the Holy Spirit for guidance and is a prayer worrier for all his congregation and anyone else in need. Pastor Ed & Miss Shirley are so loving and caring to everyone they meet. Praise God for such a devoted, loving Man of God and his wife to lead the River of Life.
