Thank you for taking the time to find out more about River City Community Church and our community. River City Community Church was established in Chicago, IL in 2003. We hope that after you look through our website and attend a worship service, you will consider becoming a more active part of our growing community of faith.
Mission & Vision
The vision of River City Community Church is to become a multi-ethnic community of Jesus-followers that transforms the city of Chicago through worship, reconciliation, and neighborhood development.
Worship. Jesus taught that every human being is created to be a worshiper–they are born to live with something as their central object of affection. When that central object of affection for a man or woman is not God, it is always replaced by something else (e.g., relationships, money, job, power, etc.). Our vision at River City is to see every person have a powerful relationship with their Creator, learning to have God as the central object of their affection. We also desire for River City to be a place that people of all spiritual backgrounds can come as they are to hear the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. John 4:23-24, Exodus 20:2-5, Psalm 96.
Reconciliation. Jesus taught that humanity has been created in God’s image, but that continued disobedience in an already fallen world breaks the intended harmonious relationship between God and His people. Reconciliation is God’s desire to mend those relationships. Our vision at River City is to become a community of faith that sees each person become reconciled to God and become restorers of harmony here in Chicago across racial, class, and gender divides. 2 Corinthians 5.11-21, John 17.20-26, Revelation 7.9.
