In April 2016, after 19 years as an independent, non-denominational community, The River discerned God's leading to bind ourselves to the larger body of Christ by traveling with a like-minded tribe called the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). We love the ECC's devotion to living out the holistic implications of the gospel in multi-ethnic contexts.
The ECC exists on five continents of the world and is one of the few growing denominations in America. The ECC values scripture as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
