Study the Bible, build friendships, and live out your faith.

Growing in the Gospel

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.

Making Disciples

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.

Planting Churches

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.

Small Groups

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.

Our Core
Values

  • Gospel Centered

    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.

  • Relationships and Biblical Community

    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 Heart

    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.

  • Maturity Through Mission

    How We Grow Spiritually

    WWe 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.

  • Missionaries > Magnets

    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.

  • Developing Leaders

    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 Multiplication

    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.

  • Corporate Worship

    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.

River City Church is affiliated with the Acts 29 church planting network as well as the Evangelical Free Church of America.
