Whether you have attended church your whole life, occasionally, or have decided to attend church for the first time, entering the doors of a church you are unfamiliar with can feel awkward, intimidating,or downright scary. You probably do not know most or any of the people at church. To help, here is some information about our church to make you feel at home.
Don't worry, you will find the people who attend Riverside Drive Baptist Church welcoming and caring regardless of your appearance or how much you know about God and church. Above all, we are very excited that you made the choice to attend our church. It is our privilege to meet you. Our number one priority is to be an encouragement and a source of help to you.

Our church services are traditional--not for the sake of tradition, but because of our unashamed belief in God's authoritative and sufficient Word which guides how we worship God and best serve those attending church. We sing hymns and conservative, contemporary songs.
Sunday Morning hosts a “Children’s Chat” : a special five minute Bible lesson for children under twelve years of age.
For children four years old and younger, the church has a clean and safe nursery staffed with ladies who are loving, kind and gentle.
While the Bible contains "rules" for our behavior, which we willingly embrace and follow, we emphasize our Biblical belief that a child of God's priority is to love his Savior the Lord Jesus Christ, the one who loves him and died for him so that he can have eternal life. When a child of God loves Jesus, he acknowledges that the Lord Jesus Christ is in charge of his life, seeks to please Jesus rather than himself, and expresses willingly his loyalty by obeying the truths of the Bible. The child of God willingly and eagerly obeys the Bible's "rules" not out of coercion but out of love. After all, Jesus died for me!
Background Checks are completed for every worker in our Children’s Ministry.
