About The River
We are the Body of Jesus Christ, His bride; living to Glorify Him, to know Him, and to obey Him in fulfilling the Great Commission. We endeavour to raise up mature sons and daughters, releasing healing, liberty, purpose and destiny through the flow of many diverse streams that are the expression of God’s heart, from the river to the ends of the earth.
