Mission and Values

At River Road Baptist Church we believe the following about:


We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity, the son of God, who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.

The Scriptures

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.


We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sin. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own efforts.


We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

Christian Life

We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should be maturing and becoming conformed to the image of Christ.

Church Life

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished works of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God.
