The Goal for Our Church Family

Over the past 25 years, we have seen God do amazing things through James River Church to change lives in our community, our nation, and around the world. We are blown away at how God continues to strengthen and build the church and use us as a body of believers to bring the good news of the Gospel to people who need Jesus! This year we unite around the calling to be Christ's hands extended by loving with extravagance, serving with genuineness, and welcoming people home.

“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
