The vision of River Ridge Teays Valley is to be a community of believers pursuing an irresistible God, building authentic communities, and committed to building life-giving relationships with each other. We desire to boldly reach the state of West Virginia for Jesus and share the love of Christ to our neighbors, nations, and the next generation.


Our mission is to help people take the next step in their journey with God.

We achieve our mission through 4 main actions:

  1. Connect (Connecting with God)
  2. Grow (Growing in Community)
  3. Serve (Serving on Purpose)
  4. Go (Going local & global) 


River Ridge Church exists to help you take next steps in your journey with God.


Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible authoritative Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts.
  2. We believe there is an Almighty, Perfect God, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, eternally coexistent personalities of the same essence.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in glory and power.
  4. We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit and His ministry of convicting and regenerating sinful people and indwelling, filling, sealing and empowering believers.
  5. We believe in the fall of man from the state of innocence in which he was created, to one of total depravity in which he is devoid of spiritual life and incapable, apart from divine power, of pleasing God.
  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved to immortality with God and of the lost to eternal separation from God.
  7. We believe in the justification of the sinner by grace through faith alone in the work of Jesus Christ, totally apart from human works.
  8. We believe that the Church Universal is composed of all true believers and that its members should assemble themselves together in local churches for worship, prayer, fellowship, and teaching with a view of being equipped to fulfill the Great Commission.

Core Values

  1. Living God's way is better
    We believe that the Bible is God’s word and the authority on how to live life to the full.  When we adjust our lives to God’s will, life is better.
  2. We never stop growing.
    We want you to come as you are not to stay there.  No matter where you are spiritually, we want to help you take next steps on your journey with God to love God and love people more and more.
  3. We are contributors, not consumers.
    We are committed to giving both of our time and our money.   Serving and giving both inside the church and outside the church.
  4. You can't do life alone.
    We want every person to get connected to a small group so as to give and receive and encouragement, accountability, belonging and care.
  5. An empty seat is a serious thing.
    We invest in relationships with people in need of God and invite them to hear about Jesus.   An empty chair represents an opportunity to reach out to an unchurched person.
  6. Anything worth doing is worth doing right.
    We strive for excellence (not perfection) in all of our ministry and programming so that people have the best opportunity to encounter Jesus.
