We are committed to making the gospel central to everything we believe and do because the gospel isn't just what saves us, it's what continually keeps believers and churches rooted, growing, and multiplying.
We are committed to the process of making disciples in the Dubuque area because we believe that the priority of the local church is to help people find and live out their identity in Christ.
We are committed to planting church-planting churches locally, regionally, and globally because we believe planting churches is a primary outworking of growing in the gospel and making disciples in the Dubuque area.
At River City Church we believe the gospel is best lived out in community, that's why we prioritize getting involved in small groups. In small groups we study the Bible together, build friendships, and live out our faith with others. Small groups are for people who are looking to grow in their faith, people who are exploring what faith means to them, and for people looking to get relationally connected. In other words, small groups are for everyone.Small Group Locations & Times
It’s All About Jesus
We believe that the gospel should be central to everything we believe and do such as our preaching, teaching, discipleship, philosophy of ministry, and strategy for mission as well as our understanding of scripture and the formation of our worldview.
Following Jesus Together
We believe that the gospel is meant to be applied and displayed in the context of community, which means that ministry is ultimately about relationships.
The Core of Who We Are
We believe that ministry should focus on the heart, which is the foundational place from which all meaningful and lasting transformation stems from.
How We Grow Spiritually
We believe that actively engaging in the mission of making disciples is a vital and essential part of being a healthy and growing disciple of Jesus.
The Ministry of All Believers
We believe that our primary philosophy of evangelism should be centered on our people thinking and acting like missionaries in their everyday lives.
Making Disciple-Making Disciples
We believe that the strategic and intentional development of disciple-making leaders should be prioritized in the life of our church.
Healthy Things Grow
We believe that multiplication is a natural outworking of growing in the gospel and should be taking place at every level of our church in healthy ways.
The Gathering of the Church
We believe that the regular corporate gathering of the church plays a unique and indispensable role in carrying out our mission and vision.
