What we are about is getting the Bible message of the good news of Jesus Christ to the people of the Connecticut River Valley and to the world.
The good news is that Jesus Christ was sent by a loving, heavenly Father to be the Savior of the world.
The good news is that people can be forgiven of their sins and freed from the penalty of their sins by placing their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah.
The good news is that people can have meaningful, fruitful and spiritual lives by having a relationship with Almighty God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
The good news is that people can be 100% sure of eternal life by repenting and turning their lives to Jesus Christ.
River Valley Baptist Church has been placed on Main Street of Ansonia for the purpose of getting that great message to as many as possible.
Though our world around us is ever-changing, we believe that God is unchanging, the truth is unchanging and His Word is unchanging. Therefore, we are an old-fashioned Baptist Church with the old-fashioned message of truth preached and taught from the old-fashioned King James Bible. We have not resorted to a worldly philosophy of worship and church growth; but have remained traditional and conservative in our music and our standards. We believe that our God is Holy and we are still old-fashioned enough to believe that His people should live holy lives. Though our arms and hearts are wide open to all who would come and visit, we believe that the powerful gospel message will cause great change in the lives of whosoever will listen and obey His Word. Yes, come as you are, but we are convinced that the truth of God’s Word, if heeded, will change you and you will desire to be conformed into the image of Jesus Christ.
