Vision & Values 

Our Goal
To give every person in Devon and area a chance to hear the gospel and respond to it.

 
Our 5 Core Values
The Bible - is writen to give us hope. Hope is the theme of the Bible.
Prayer - this is how we find hope, by asking, seeking, and knocking.
The Poor, Lost and Disabled - these are the people most needing hope in our society.
Family - gives a permanent place for our hope.
Team - gives a corporate sense of hope as each person plays their role in the Body.

 
Foundational Truth
It is God's desire that His church grow by His people obeying His word by caring for one another and by reproducing disciples.


Philosophy of Ministry
For the Church to be healthy, we have to maintain a balance between the upward, inward, and outward dimensions of discipleship. We reach upward through worship and prayer, inward through caring and equipping, and outward through witnessing and serving the community.

Our Mission
The purpose of River of Hope is to reach non-Christian people and help them become disciples of Jesus Christ in Devon and worldwide. “The spirit of the Lord is on me because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”

Luke 4:18

 

According to this verse, the mission of River of Hope is to be engaged in serving our community by sharing about Jesus and helping those lost to find the path.
