River of Life Vision

OUR VISION

Inspired by the vision of “the River of the Water of Life” in Revelation 22:1-5, we are building a glorious church through praise & worship, Holy Spirit renewal, cell church and glocal impact.

 

OUR STRATEGIES

PRAISE & WORSHIP

  • Build our church as one of the centers of worship; develop a worship ministry and train the worship leaders.
  • Send out worship teams into North America and the world to equip worship ministries and bring forth the renewal of worship and praise.
  • Produce worship media to promote worship ministry to the world.

 

HOLY SPIRIT RENEWAL

  • Equip the saints to serve God through the teaching of the Word and the revival by the Holy Spirit.
  • Build an environment in which the Holy Spirit can hover freely and pour His anointing.
  • Coordinate with the World Prayer Network, praying in all directions and praying for revival in the church.

 

CELL CHURCH

  • Build a whole person shepherding ministry through mutual love in small groups of all ages.
  • Provide resources for Christian discipleship and build a training center to systematically equip full-time ministers and lay people to serve God.
  • Build and train a diverse team of full time co-workers. Set up a strong and vibrant church as a model for North America cell churches.

 

GLOCAL IMPACT

  • To strategically plant churches around the globe that shares the vision of building a glorious church.
  • To evangelize and advance His kingdom by ways of prayers, financial support, short term missions and commissioning local pastors. 
  • To embrace entire cities as mission fields through community outreach, mercy ministries and relief campaigns.
  • To deploy multimedia and information technology to support church planting and broadening the reach of the gospel.

OUR NAME

"River of Life" represents the vision that was entrusted to us by God. The name came from Revelation 22:1~5: 

~ Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city.
On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. ~ (Rev. 22:1~5) 

The picture depicts not only the heavenly church, but also a picture of the Church on earth. This is a blueprint for how a church should be like today.
