"Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy

which will be for all the people;

Luke 2:10

When the angels had gone away from them into heaven,
the shepherds began saying to one another, "Let us go straight to Bethlehem then,
and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us."
So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph,
and the baby as He lay in the manger.

Luke 2:15-16

You are Welcome here!

Whether you are a faithful follower of Jesus Christ, a seeker looking for truth in life, or a traveling worshipper passing through the community, we welcome you with open arms! 

Riverton Christian Church is located in Riverton, Illinois.  A small transforming bedroom community, Riverton is home to nearly 4,000 people.  We strive to be a warm and caring faith based community.  Through Christ's sacrifice, we are made into a forever family.  We invite you to be part of His family!

We believe it is the calling of the church to be the hands of fulfillment of what is known as the "Great Commission" given by Jesus himself in Matthew 28.19-20.  Christ tells all Christians to evangelize the lost, baptize those who come to Christ, and nurture the saved.  We invite you to join us as we seek to fulfill His vision of faith!

The Lord's church is further designed to be a place of refuge, of safety, and of truth.  The church is a place of renewal and refreshment, for those who have found the peace of God through Christ Jesus and are on a positive spiritual journey.    It is to be a place of encouragement and peace for the lonely, the spiritually and emotionally wounded, and the downtrodden.  To all people the church is to be home. 
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.  Matthew 28:19-20



1 And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.  2 This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria.  3 So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David,  5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife,[a] who was with child.  6 So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.  7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.  9 And behold,[b] an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.  10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:14
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.”  16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.  17 Now when they had seen Him, they made widely[d] known the saying which was told them concerning this Child.  18 And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds.  19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.  20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.
Luke 2 (1-20) NKJV
