WHO is Jesus?
believes Jesus Christ is Lord.
We are a church that loves God and loves people.
We are truly grateful for the free gift of salvation that we have in Jesus through the grace of God.
River Church has a heart for authentic, passionate worship.
We believe that the local church is the hope of the world.
We are on a mission to see The Kingdom of Heaven
established in Thief River Falls.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said,
Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him,
Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee,
That thou art Peter, and upon this rock
I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
What you believe about Jesus changes everything including your eternity!
Is He the son of God?
Is He God?
Was He really raised physically from the dead?
Your answer to these questions DETERMINES your spiritual condition - alive unto God, or dead in sin.
Man is a three-part being, just like God.
God = Father, Son, & Holy Spirit
Man = Spirit, Soul, & Body
1 Thessalonians 5:23
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our spirit man is eternal.
Every man, woman, and child will live forever,
it's simply a matter of where!
Jesus said in John 3:3
"Except you be born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God."
All of mankind needs to be born again.
We need a new heart, a new inner nature.
Because of the fall of man (Adam) "sin".
Sin forever changed man's spiritual condition.
Mankind "died spiritually."
Definition: Spiritual death is - SEPARATION from God.
Jesus came to restore our relationship through the new birth.
Jesus alone lived a sinless life so He could bridge the gap between our sin and our relationship with a Holy God.
Romans 10:9 & 10 "9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, and we become His children. It is an irrevocable acceptance into the family of God, and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose of reflecting God to the rest of His creation.
If you are not sure whether you are right with God, or you know in fact that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of repentance and surrender.
You can commit your life to Jesus right now.
Dear heavenly Father, I know that I have done wrong by living without You,
I believe You love me, and I'm sorry for living a sinful life,
I ask for Your forgiveness right now.
I accept Your love and grace for my life.
Jesus, be my Lord and Savior. I believe that the Father raised you from the dead. Help me to know and serve You every day, and help me to show the world what You are like and how great Your love is. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
YOU ARE SAVED!
