Values

Worship

We believe that the most intimate expression of our love for God is worship. We desire our corporate celebration to be a time of great refreshing for everyone involved. Our goal in worship is to glorify God and engage His presence.

We sincerely hope that you feel the freedom to worship God the way He deserves- with all of your heart.

Prayer

Jesus said, “My Father’s house will be a house of prayer.” At RiverStone we believe that prayer should be our first response, not our last resort. We desire everything we do to be bathed in prayer. To this end, we have a prayer room in the church building that is available as well as other  activities centered on our belief in the power of prayer. These opportunities include ministry time at every Sunday morning service and our monthly Night of Healing Prayer.

Healing

We believe that Jesus is the Great Healer. While our world is being devastated by sin and sickness, we have confidence in God and God alone to heal. He has the power to bring life out of death. We desire to see healing take place in our church, our community and in every area of life: the physical, the emotional, the relational, and most all, the spiritual. Because healing was central in Jesus’ ministry, we are committed to becoming a Center for Healing.

We currently provide a monthly Night of Healing Prayer, Sunday morning prayer teams, SOZO Ministry, and Pastoral Counseling.

 

Development

We believe that God has called us to be a church that focuses on training and sending. We realize that many of the people who come to RiverStone Church are led here by God so that they can be trained, equipped, empowered, and then sent into strategic places of ministry around the world. Whatever God’s call on your life, we would love the opportunity to walk with you as you listen, discover, and fulfill your Kingdom Destiny.

Our congregation also meets in cells, or small groups, throughout the week. A cell group is comprised of 6-14 people who gather weekly to build relationships with one another through study, prayer and encouragement. Cell groups also help and reach out to those who do not know Jesus. We have cells meeting Sunday through Friday in homes throughout Cobb County.

Community Transformation

When we think about Community Transformation, we see it as the Presence of God changing an area completely.  We believe we’ll be able to see tangible evidence that God is changing our community….things that can be measured.  We’re looking at things like the crime rate dropping, abortion disappearing, and the divorce rate diminishing.

If God can do that in a small place…He can do it in a large place.

Outreach

We’ve heard the Lord’s call to GO and reach the lost.  Outreach can happen anywhere: on a short-term mission trip,  a long-term mission trip, but especially wherever you are right now—in your own backyard.  The truth is, there are many, MANY people who have no idea who Jesus really is…that there’s a Father in Heaven who loves and cherishes them as well as a Son who died, resurrected, and paid for them to take away their shame.

At RiverStone, we want to be a “people of outreach.”  We want the Lord to invade all of our areas of influence whether that’s in the marketplace, at the gas station, in your school—the world should see the light God has placed inside of YOU.
