Blood River Church of God

About Us

Our church

We have been faithfully serving the Springfield, Louisiana community for nearly 80 years. We are a loving group of people accepting the challenges that Jesus left behind for his followers. When asked what the greatest commandment was, Christ replied with two: we are to love God and we are to love people. By following these we can fulfill the laws of the prophets. So as a church we strive to do just that. 

Our beliefs

About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture.

About God
We believe in one God who is the Creator of the universe. He is the one God of the Bible & is our Heavenly Father.

About Jesus
We believe Jesus is God's only Son. He was supernaturally conceived as the Son of God and miraculously born of the virgin Mary. We believe he is the promised Messiah spoken of by the Bible. 

About Salvation
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

About the Kingdom of God
We believe the Kingdom of God will be ultimately established on the earth when Christ personally returns in a visible way. Both God and Jesus will live for eternity with us on a perfectly restored earth.

About the Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.
