May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
…so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:5
Personal conversion to Christ is a requirement for membership in Riverside Covenant Church. To be converted is to know you have committed your life to Jesus Christ, trusting in him solely for forgiveness of your sins (Acts 3:19). Some Christians are able to trace their conversion to a point in time. Others testify that commitment to Christ occurred over a period of time. What is essential is to know that you have committed your life to Jesus Christ.
Baptism is also a requirement for membership in Riverside Covenant Church. We affirm the validity of infant, child, or adult baptism. Both sprinkling and immersion are practiced and we recognize baptisms performed in other Christian churches. If you have not been baptized, please let a pastor know you are ready to be baptized and we would love to help you take this step of faith.
