Riverside Church reflects the
relaxed traditional style of its
Mid-Century Modern architecture
and the Riverside neighborhood.
Our worship is grounded in sound biblical teaching, from
the pulpit to the music, that brings the people of God into
life-giving and life-changing interaction with Him.
"Every week, I pray that we see the beauty of the Gospel in a new way;
one that challenges and strengthens us. And that every person
finds their faith built up once again, that they might go out into
their week assured of the promises of God and eager to live for Him."
