Frequent Asked Questions

Does RIVER MINISTRIES (NORFOLK) have any connection with `Jehovah`s Witness, Mormons, Spiritualists or other sects?

No! We are a Christian Church, teaching the basic, orthodox truths foundational to biblical Christianity. (See what we believe)


No!, We have been in Watton since 1930 and moved to our current church building in 1977. We are in fellowship with Assemblies of God and enjoy good relationships with, and work alongside other Christian leaders around the town. It is new in the sense that two churches in the town joined together in the year 2000 and the name is new. (see River Ministries history)

Does RIVER MINISTRIES (NORFOLK) cause families to break up?

Are those who join RIVER MINISTRIES (NORFOLK) prevented from leaving?

No! We teach that the faith in Christ is the starting point of Christian life and that this should be followed by baptism.
