River of Life Fellowship is a Pentecostal church, affiliated with the Pentecostal Church of God.

  • The Bible is the inspired word of god

    The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, came from God through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and is His Word.  (2 Timothy 3:16)

  • The Godhead is a trinity - father, son and holy spirit

    The Godhead is a Trinity - God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:19)

  • Salvation is through jesus christ

    Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and faith in His shed blood on the Cross. Everyone is in need of a Savior because all of us have fallen short of the glory of God.  (Ephesians 3:8)

  • The Church

    The Church is made up of the redeemed of all the ages, and is referred to in the Scripture as the Body of Christ, with Jesus Christ Himself being the head of the Church.  (Ephesians 1:19-23)

  • water baptism

    Water Baptism is a direct command of Jesus, and is to be done by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:19)

  • baptism  of the holy spirit

    Those who have been born again can ask and receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.  (Acts 1:8)  The Biblical sign that a person has received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues, as the Spirit enables them.  (Acts 2:4)

  • divine healing

    Divine Healing was provided for us by Jesus' suffering and death on the Cross, and is available to all who believe.  (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24)

  • the second coming of christ

    The Second Coming of Christ will take place in two stages: first, the Rapture of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17);  second, after the seven years of Tribulation on the earth, (Matthew 24:21), Jesus shall return with His saints to establish His Kingdom on the earth where He shall reign 1,000 years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  (Revelation 20:6; Isaiah 9:7). This is referred to as the Millennial Reign of Christ.

  • Great white throne judgment

    At the Great White Throne Judgment, the unsaved will be judged.  (2 Peter 2:9; Revelation 21:8)

  • tithing

    The Tithe (one tenth of the increase) is holy and belongs to the Lord. (Leviticus 27:30; Malachi 3:10)
