core values

The River's 4 C's describe what it looks like to live a life of vibrant discipleship in Silicon Valley.

Communion

The counter-cultural choice to resist the idol of self-reliance (eating the bread of anxious toil, Psalm 127), instead prioritizing our life with Christ who is always with us – speaking to us and transforming us into a people who reflect his image in the world. The best things in spiritual community happen in the places where we become family to one another. That’s how we view Partnership—where we shape values and embrace a future together.

Community

The counter-cultural choice to resist the idol of individualism, instead prioritizing our calling to live as a member of the family of God.

Commission

The counter-cultural choice to resist the idol of narcissism, instead prioritizing our calling to live as Jesus’ blessing to the world around us.

Community

The counter-cultural choice to resist the idol of materialism, instead embracing God's call to strengthen the church (and her mission) through the thoughtful stewarding of our time, gifts/passions, and material resources.
