The Goal for Our Church Family
This year, at James River Church, we unite around the calling to be Christ's hands extended by loving with extravagance and serving with genuineness; to turn love into action against the hurt of humanity. We know that when we love like God loves amazing things can happen.
Lead Pastors John & Debbie Lindell
“The best is yet to come. How will it come? When we as a church embrace His purposes, when we as individuals choose to be wholehearted in our devotion to Him. God is in this place and when God is here, ANYTHING can happen!” - John Lindell
Current Sermon Series
We believe God’s Word is powerful and life-changing. Every week, we walk through the Bible verse by verse, book by book. Catch up on our current sermon series, Ruth: The Best is Yet to Come, by watching our most recent message and join the journey with us.
