Praise and worship was great! However, if you do not enjoy the entire sermon instructing you to turn to your neighbor and tell him/her this or that or clap for them, this is not the church for you. I haven’t attended church in months and decided to give this church a try since I’m looking for a church home. I love praise and worship but I value an applicable sermon/message. I was disappointed because the sermon was filled with hooping and hollering, and us moving to the other side of the church to encourage and hold hands with someone. I’m not knocking it; it just wasn’t for me.

The midweek service was a true Sunday service EXPERIENCE. We arrived a bit early, but the staff and volunteers that were working still took the time to greet and love on us. The praise and worship was great, but the word delivered through Bishop Godbee was exceptional. If you're tired of being plump in the natural and malnourished in the spirit realm the River Church is the place to be. Great Teaching!! Can't wait until Sunday! Thanks to Eric for the special love added in those first time visitor bags!

Wonderful place where the word is filling and the people are welcoming. I’ve been at The River for 14 years and I love it! They are strong in community outreach, the praise and worship is awesome, and Bishop Godbee and his family love the people of God. And we love them!

I love this place. Most are intentionally warm and welcoming. There were a few that were clickish but that is to be expected, no church is perfect. This one is close though, from the amazing worship and allowing the Holy Spirit to minister, you truly hear God address some difficult issues many churches glaze over. When we speak of diversity, this is an African American population. There weren’t many other nationalities. The music ministry you can feel must truly be worshippers. Gods presence really fills this place. The pastors and speakers come with such a humility that it makes you want to hear what they have to say. A negative take away for me is that most of the time there is a dynamic break through worship service, now they must ask for money. For me that negates their abilities to have faith that the money they need will come. It is so pleasurable to go to a church and not be heavily coersed or coached in the name of God to secure what seems like an expected amount of money. Overall this is a great place that desires excellence and engages the kids positively.

Incredible word (Bishop Godbee), worship, great people, and their 4 life for kids is amazing. No worries if you did not cook Sunday dinner, you can also enjoy their cafe and the Sunday dinner food that is usually prepared after every 10:30 service. The River is the cities church!

I admonish anyone to come and enjoy the word by our Bishop Ronald L. Godbee. Our praise and worship is life changing. You will truly have an uplifting and life changing experience. We love our church.

Great church. Friendly people with warm hugs and genuine hearts. We visited here during a family member's baby christening. It was an awesome service from worship to closing. Pastor gave a dynamic word! Blessed experience!!
