3 "He that is planted by The River shall flourish. He will give forth his fruit in its time, his leaves will not wither, and all that he does shall prosper."    Psalm 1



Life

9  "Everything touching the water of the river shall live. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will be healed. Wherever the river flows, everything will live."  

Ezekiel 47



We believe the life of God is available for anyone who believes. Depression, sickness, poverty, loneliness, etc.  will be healed wherever the river of God flows.

Glad

4 "There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells."  Psalm 46


We believe the  people of God should be the happiest people on the planet and the atmosphere of the church should reflect our joy.

Powerful

5 "It was a torrent, which I could not pass over: for the river had risen so as to make a deep torrent, which could not be passed over."  

Ezekiel 47


We believe "Greater is He who is in us than he that is in this world."  We believe we are  created by a powerful God to be powerful people.  1 John 4:4


Depth

4 "Again he measured a thousand and led me through the river, water reaching the knees.  Again he measured a thousand and led me through the river, water reaching the loins.  Again he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not cross, for the water had risen, enough water to swim in."  Ezekiel 47


We believe there are many depths  in God and we should push out from the bank, beyond the shallow, and reach for the deep.

diverse

10 "Fishermen will stand beside the river.  It will be a place for the spreading of nets. Its fish will be of very many kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea." 

Ezekiel 47


We believe the church should reflect heaven.  Every nationality, ethnicity, age --all are welcome.  We are many people with one purpose.
