Our Vision


We are ONE CHURCH in multiple locations — dynamic, spirit-filled and multi-cultural — serving people, developing leaders and impacting generations.

· Multi-Cultural – many cultures, represented by different ideas, customs, races and people.

Our Values


1. God’s Presence

The essential and defining component of our services. Without it, we are nothing; within it we find everything. His presence is what heals us, comforts us, guides us and breathes new life into our souls.

2. Outreach

We live in a world desperately seeking truth and hope. We exist to share the Gospel and see lives changed in our city, our nation and our world through practical ministry to people’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

3. The Next Generation

We are dedicated to reaching the next generation and equipping them to be mighty men and women of God whose lives transform their sphere of influence and make an eternal impact in the world.

4. Excellence

God is worthy of our best. Going beyond what is required, giving our best at all times in everything we do brings joy to God’s heart and glory to His name.

5. Creativity

From the beginning of time, God has used creative means to communicate with His people. If God communicates creatively, we want to also.

6. Diversity

We are committed to experiencing life as a diverse community. We celebrate all cultures, races, personalities, ages and backgrounds because each reflects the beauty of our Maker in a unique way. Our differences individually complete us corporately.

7. Relevance

Cultural awareness increases opportunity to connect with people. When we bring God and the power of His Word into the situations people are facing on a daily basis, lives are changed.

8. Serving

God has placed in man a desire to be a part of something bigger than himself. As we serve in His house, we experience, the fulfillment of giving ourselves to the greatest cause of all: seeing His kingdom purposes accomplished on the earth.

9. Life-Giving Atmosphere

We believe that God’s house is a place where all people can come and experience life as God intended it; a place where love is felt, relationships are formed and destiny is discovered.

10. Teamwork

We do life together. As we work side by side, we share in the joy seeing our unique strengths, abilities and gifts unite to accomplish God’s kingdom purposes in our community and across the world.

-Angie Wathen

“God has changed my life through this church!!! I grew up my whole life in a spirit-filled church, and yet I felt like I had never been to church until I sat in my first service at River City Church. That was almost 7 years ago when I lived an hour away, but the drive was completely worth it. Since then I have moved to Owensboro and found not only an amazing church family, but I have connected to my community and found people to do life with at this church. God is moving here and I encourage EVERYONE to attend at least 3 services so they can also experience this welcoming and encouraging environment firsthand. Church is fun at River City Church!”
