Welcome to Rivermont Baptist Church's Website! At Rivermont, we believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of Almighty God and is the very foundation of all that we believe and do. Our goal is to be an effective Great Commission Church, that we might impact our city, state, nation, and world with the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes and that our responsibility is to help spread this good news of how God so loved us and sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, to suffer and die on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, was buried, and rose again. Our mission is to win people to Christ, connect them to the local church, help them become devoted followers, witnesses, servants, and worshippers of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to have a church that is filled with love, joy, and excitement. We want everyone to experience God's presence and life changing power in our services. We preach the Word of God and stress the importance of values and building character. Above all, we want to help every person go to heaven and help those going to heaven to enjoy the trip. May God bless you and your family in the coming days and may you experience His love, grace, joy, and peace in all that you do.
