About River Ridge Church Church

Evangelical Free 100-250 people

Our vision is to make multiplying disciples and launch new River Ridge Campuses and our mission is to Glorify God and Advance His Kingdom by loving others to Christ.

In March 2018, a group of strong Christ followers launched a new church with the purpose to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, teach Biblical truth, and work together to serve their community. In the summer of 2020, River Ridge welcomed Spring Grove Bible Fellowship in a merger that would result in the River Ridge Spring Grove Campus. River Ridge is a growing church with a Bible-centered statement of faith and a united Elder Board and staff. The church is ready to welcome a new leader and launch its second campus in a community in need of an evangelical church. The River Ridge Trevor Campus will be a natural expression of the church’s Mission and Vision that has been prayed for and prepared for since the earliest days.
