About Us

River Community Church is a church of people in Ascension Parish, Louisiana, captured and captivated by the love of Jesus Christ.

We’ve never gotten over the goodness of the Gospel
and hope that we never will.

But this doesn’t make us perfect people. In fact, we—both individually and corporately—are coming to realize that we are a lot worse than we ever imagined ourselves to be. But we’re also coming to realize that God’s love for us in Christ is greater than we could ever comprehend.

Thus, we don’t come to church each week because we think there’s something special about us or about our church; rather we come to church each week because we know that in spite of who we really are, Jesus Christ loved us and gave Himself for us. As the Apostle Paul writes, “For our sake he [God] made him [Jesus] to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21). And it’s this truth that has captured and captivated our lives.

We hope you’ll join us on this journey and that our website will help answer any questions you might have about us.
