Riverstone Church exists to advance the gospel by making disciples who make disciples. A disciple is a forgiven follower of Jesus who is growing to become like him. This process of growing to become more like Jesus is what we call "discipleship."
We grow as disciples as God's Word is applied to our lives by God's Spirit through God's people. This means that we need to consistently be interacting both with God's Word and with God's people, as they are the tools that God's Spirit uses help us grow to become like Jesus.
Because of this, we seek to provide opportunities where the people of our congregation can interact with one another around the truth of God's Word so that they can pursue spiritual growth in Christ together.
Groups are the backbone of our discipleship ministry. These smaller gatherings commit to get together regularly to speak truth, show love, and grow together in Christ. We have groups that meet as both long-term groups and short-term studies.
