Who We Are

We seek to provide a loving, nurturing environment to develop our personal relationships with God, to increase our knowledge of God’s love, and to share God’s love with others.


We believe true joy and happiness are found in life in relationship with God and in service to God. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we wish to share the blessings of God with those around us. Our work and mission are shaped by our trust in the truths proclaimed by Jesus the Christ.


Our building is handicapped-accessible and open for meetings of all kinds of groups. Our Sanctuary is warm in winter, air conditioned in summer. Our Sanctuary also has an induction loop assistive listening system. This system is compatible with all telecoil-equipped hearing aids, cochlear implants and induction loop receivers. Parking is available on the surrounding neighborhood streets and in two handicapped-only spots in the front driveway, which is also used as a quick drop off and pick up point. Please contact us if you have any special needs or concerns.

The Blessings of Riverside


We believe that Christ has created Riverside Church in order to be a blessing to the greater community of LaSalle and the Towns of Niagara and Wheatfield. We believe true joy and happiness are found in life in relationship with God and in service to Him. By the power of the Holy Spirit we wish to share the blessings of God with those around us. Our work and mission will be shaped by our trust in the following truths proclaimed by Jesus:





I. Happy are those who worship the Lord, for they shall experience the presence of God

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul.”

Worship is the core of our Church’s life together.


II. Happy are those who open themselves to others, for they shall discover human relationship

“Love one another even as I have loved you.”

The fellowship of our Church in central to its strength.


III. Happy are those who care for those in need, for they shall find Christ

“When you have done it to the least of these, my brethren, you have done it unto me.”

The Church is to minister to people in need.


IV. Happy are those who are learning God’s word, for they shall become the people God intends them to be.

“Be ye perfect.”

The Church is to foster the spiritual growth of its men, women and children that they might become better disciples.


V. Happy are those who share the good news of Christ, for their own faith is strengthened.

“Go into all the world…”

The Church is to proclaim and teach the Gospel of Christ.
