The River of Life is uniquely located in Springfield, KY.  We officially launched our first service on November 8, 1998 in the Senior Citizen building in Springfield.  Since then, we have moved into our permanent and current location at 1250 HWY 555 Springfield, KY.  We are a church with a conviction and desire to faithfully take the Gospel into our community, our state, our nation, and to the ends of the earth.  As a church, we are committed to preaching and teaching the full inerrant Word of God.  Also, we willingly submit to God for our continual direction.

If you do not already have a church home, we would love for you to join us.  The River of Life has many ministries that are available for all ages and the entire family.  We strive to offer many small group Bible Studies throughout the year.  As a New Testament Church we encourage everyone to practically live out Acts 2:41-47 and commit to at least five specific faith practices.  The five faith practices are:

-We devote ourselves to BIBLICAL TEACHING

-We devote ourselves to FELLOWSHIP

-We devote ourselves to PRAYER

-We devote ourselves to WORSHIP

-We devote ourselves to SERVICE through meeting the needs of others

God is calling men and women of all ages and races, to become One in Christ.  So, we would love for you to join us in this journey of faithfulness.

What We Believe

Our prayer for every gathering is that you would feel welcomed and loved and that you wouldn’t leave the building thinking about how cool our artwork was, how funny the preacher was, or how awesome the guitar player in the band was. We want you to leave our gathering amazed at God’s radical love expressed through the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Our Ministries

This church body has many parts, and each of those parts comes together in a unique and purposeful way to carry out the mission of sharing the Gospel with the world. From worship services and children's ministry to special events and banquets, to simply cleaning the building and maintaining the property, every part matters and every part contributes to the ultimate goal of sharing Christ with the world.

X Groups

Every year, we embark on a number of small group opportunities, each with committed individuals who want to connect in community with others from the church and learn about God's Word and it's practical application in daily life.The studies range in topic and depth but all center around the same common factor - understanding the Bible and figuring out how to make it practical for life change.  The main goal is that people are lifted towards Christ!
