River's Edge Christian Church began in 2010 with a small group of people meeting in the back yards of some of the early members of the church. We are a group of Evangelical Christians from several denominations with one purpose and that is to glorify God. In 2013, we moved to our current location in Vernon Center. We have had the privilege of having many godly men preach and share God's word with us. In 2016, Bart Whitman, our Pastor, came to serve with us and lead the congregation.
We intend, by God’s grace, to fulfill our purpose to glorify God by obeying the commandments of Jesus given in his Word, by being empowered by the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8), by reflecting the oneness of God, with God and with each other, and by worshiping God in Spirit and truth (John 17:20-23). We will proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed through both witnessing and evangelism.
River’s Edge Church exists to Glorify God through fervent prayer, passionate worship and hands on community outreach.
River’s Edge will be a church that Glorifies God through passionate and engaging worship that drives us towards community outreach and evangelism, as well as supporting missions work. We place a particular emphasis on children and youth, and in all our work, we will rely on prayer and the Holy Spirit to guide us.

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, sustainer of life, infinite in love, holy, infinitely perfect, unchanging, and existing eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the giver of new life in Christ.
We Believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that the true church is made up of all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone.
We believe that the Lord Jesus instituted two ordinances: baptism by water and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ.
