Welcome to River of Life! We are a family of people from different ethnicities, generations, and religious backgrounds, who are committed to Christ and to serving our community. Take the time to check out our site, and then come and check us out in person -- we’re confident that you’ll discover for yourself that ROL is a great place to investigate faith, make new friends, and make a difference in Barstow and the high desert! Our vision is summed up in the phrase:  Belong. Believe. Become.

It's all about the journey-- the process of growing into fully devoted followers of Jesus.  And it's about coming together in order to care for the poor, the hurting, the lonely, and the disenfranchised. 


We're also a friendly bunch -- in fact, newcomers regularly tell us that it's because everyone was so loving and accepting toward them when they first came, that they knew this was the church family they wanted to be part of. If that sounds like what you're looking for, come and visit and see for yourself!
