To be a bible-based church which is empowered by the Holy Spirit to minister to the mind, body, soul and spirit of every believer and those that seek a relationship with Jesus Christ.
River of Living Water a Christian ministry was established in 2017 in the home of Gilbert Pitts and Reverend Cynthia Pitts. Reverend Pitts received her training through the African Methodist Episcopal church and worked tirelessly in the AME ministry for 30 plus years.
River of Living Water’s mission is not only to spread the word of God; which is primary, but to up lift the minds and spirits of those in need. The church currently sponsors two children through the Compassion organization that cloth, educate, feed and provide religious training to underprivileged children and families in many third world countries.
As we grow in our ministry it is our prayer that God will continue to use each of us to brighten someone’s day, lift the down hearted, bring souls to God and be a beacon of light in our community.
The Affirmation of Faith
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. The third day he arose from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.
