About Riverbend Bible Church
The reason we're here
Above all else, we want you to know, understand, and embrace a message that the Bible calls the Gospel.
This message is the announcement that God has kept his promises and sent his only Son Jesus Christ into our world as a man. He lived a perfect life which we should all have lived but none of us have. So, he died the death we all deserve to die because of our sin and rebellion against God. We simply have not cherished his glory as our highest good. We refuse his loving rule and insist on our own way. The Gospel proclaims that Jesus rose from the dead to validate all that he did on the cross to save from judgment any who turn away from sin and trust exclusively in Him.
We want you to be among those who love and follow Jesus as Lord.
Our Faith in Practice
Confession of Faith
This document summarizes the Bible’s core truth surrounding and supporting the gospel.
These are the commitments we make to each other as brothers sisters who seek to display the gospel in community.
This is how we serve our Lord together, exercising authority in a healthy way and making decisions that promote our purpose: to worship and witness to Jesus Christ as our greatest treasure.
What we value
Riverbend Bible Church seeks to be a Christ-centered
community whose members practice:
.... delight in the historic, gospel faith founded in the Christian Scriptures
... practice honest fellowship with God and each other through covenant membership
... and offer humble service, displaying and declaring the gospel in the Atchison area and to the ends of the earth.
At Riverbend Bible Church we have multiple elders and deacons to serve our church body.
