Founded in 2006 by Pastor Michael and Alicia Boggs, Rivers of
Living Water Ministries is a pentecostal / charismatic church.  The
church started in the home of Pastor Boggs.  After sharing a
theater building for a short time and seeing rapid growth, RLWM
was able to purchase the former home of the Elkins Church of the
Nazarene.  Once again, the growth has been rapid and
necessitated the need to begin having two Sunday morning
Statement of Purpose
To love the Lord our God with all of our heart, with all of our soul, and
with all of our mind;  to love our neighbors as ourselves;  to open the
eyes of the lost that they may turn from darkness to the Light of Christ
and to deliver them from the power of satan unto God, that they may
receive the eternal life of God;  to make, train, and equip disciples for
Christ that all may find and fulfill their God-ordained purpose and destiny
in Christ, thus building the Kingdom of God and bringing glory and honor
to His Name
What We Believe . . .
The Bible is the Word of God to man.  All Scripture contained in the Word is "God Breathed", the product of Holy men
who spoke and wrote as they were moved upon by the Holy Spirit.    (2 Timothy  3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)

The Holy Trinity:  Our God is one God that exists in three Persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy
Spirit.  (Luke 3:21-22, John 15:26-27)

Man is a created being, formed in the image of God.  Through Adam's sin, spiritual death passed upon all men, thus
separating man from God.  Salvation is made available through Jesus Christ, the one and only begotten Son of God,
Who gave his life and shed His blood for the remission of sin and man's reconciliation to God.  (Genesis 1:27-28, Roman
5:12, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:18-19)

Salvation is available to all through the New Birth experience, which includes godly repentance and the confession of
Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  (John 3:3, Romans 10:9-10)

Water Baptism by immersion is a symbol of a Christian's identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.  
(Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:36-39)

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit and Fire is a gift from God as promised through the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers and
is received subsequent to the new birth.  (Matthew 3:11, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8, 2:1-4)

Sanctification is a definite, yet progressive, work of grace which begins at the new birth and is a continual process
throughout the believer's life.  (Hebrews 12:14, 1 Thessalonians 5:23,       2 Peter 3:18, Philippians 1:6)

Divine Healing is provided for in the atoning work of Christ and is available to all believers.  (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17,
1 Peter 2:24)

The Resurrection of the righteous dead and the catching away (rapture) of the believers will occur at the appearance of
Christ. (Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

One who dies without accepting Christ as Lord and Savior will spend eternity separated from God in a literal hell.  
(Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 19:20)
