Who We Are

The River Church was originally called the West Palm Beach Church of God. It was birthed through much hard work and prayer from Reverend Atkins. Pastor Atkins vacationed in West Palm Beach for several years and was always troubled that he could not attend a Church of God because there was not one here. After asking the Lord why, His answer was, “Because YOU have not started it yet!” Soon after, this great church began an incredible journey.

The West Palm Beach Church of God began growing at a rapid rate, reaching an average attendance as high as 500, as news spread of a spirit-filled church that was experiencing Revival! In the early days, the Spirit of God would fill the church during worship in such a tangible way that all they could do is worship Him more!

The church became known through the area for being a church that:
Ø Worships until the presence of God comes.
Ø Loves every person with the Love of God.
Ø Preaches the uncompromising Word of God.
Ø Prays with signs and wonders following.
