New Life Class

New believers are equipped to become fully-devoted followers of Christ in this 6-week class. You will discuss the Bible, your purpose and mission in life, as well as be able to ask questions about what it means to live the Christian life fully in Jesus Christ. Join us at 9am in the South Commons at South Campus or Meeting Room 2 at West Campus. No matter which week you join the class, you will be able to jump right in!

What is baptism?

The Bible says that water baptism is the first step of obedience after salvation! Each and every Sunday is an opportunity to get baptized! Just bring a towel and a change of clothes, invite your friends and family and celebrate your walk with Christ by making this important step.

Get Plugged Into a Life Group

Not only are Life Groups the way we make a big church feel small, they are the number one way we disciple people. Life Groups create an environment for believers to challenge and encourage one another in their faith. You’ll find a place of support and laughter from a group of people who genuinely care and love you through all seasons of life.

Become a Church Member

Being a member of James River is simply uniting with the church family to share, support and serve our community and local church. Having received Christ, and been baptized in water, you can commit to God and the other members of James River at one of our Connection Classes.
