Riverbend:
Here's a reality that never changes: there is always another church that does something better than your church. You can never find the perfect church any more than you can marry the perfect mate or be employed at the perfect job. But you can find God's will for you and your family.

What should you look for?

1. Leaders that seek above all else to obey the Head of the church (Christ).
2. Teaching that probes the Scriptures and let's you in on what God actually says, even if it is uncomfortable.
3. Fellowship among believers that is constant and not just on Sundays.
4. Pastoral involvment in your life on a regular basis. Pastors should know the sheep and care for them.
5. A clear understanding of the gospel that saves.
6. A proper view of baptism as required by Christ.
7. An attempt to have a regenerate membership.

There is more, but these are some of the more important ones listed by Jim Ellis in The Perfect Church .
I thank God for all you in leadership positions at Riverbend.  Cindy and I are grateful that Riverbend is our church home!     --Tom Best

Points to Ponder
God blesses His Word. If there is any success to my ministry, it is that God has honored His Word.   --Adrian Rogers

The Christian who is careless in Bible reading is careless in Christian living.   --Max Reich

A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.   --Theodore Roosevelt (32nd U.S. President)

The whole Book is about Him. Look for Him on every page; He is there. If you fail to see Him there, you need to read that page again.  --J.C. Ryle
