IMPORTANT UPDATE RE Church services & Covid 19

Dear Ridgeview Church family, community and friends, after careful consideration and discussion with board, staff and elders we have decided to suspend ALL meetings , programs and events that require gathering at the physical church building. This will be until further notice due to the worldwide concerns of the spread of the Corona virus. We in no way want to nurture a climate of fear or hysteria . This is about Faith not Fear. Its about caution, care and concern vs Corona and Chaos. Our security and strength is in God , prayer and the unification of the Body of Christ. We want to be a strong example of this not just to our own congregation and fellow believers but to our City and those in Authority that have sought solid advice and made hard informed decisions to try and keep our city safe. We want to send a message that we are listening and that we care about ALL the people in our Communities. We are the Body of Christ and that extends far beyond the physical building . The Corona virus is contagious but more-so is the LOVE of God, the CARE of God , the TRUST in God. Most of all the HOPE of God. All things around can be cancelled but none of what God offers can EVER be cancelled. The kindness and example of evident faith and trust shown through believers will be a beacon. Let's not look at this as opposition but as opportunity. Call one another, encourage friends, family and neighbours. See if there are practical ways you can help. If you know of someone that just can’t get out to get what they need or is struggling in anyway ,be their blessing. WE have the opportunity to put our faith into action .Trust, hope , pray and wash your hands often :)) Pastor Mike or Pam are available if needed . YOU ARE LOVED AND CARED ABOUT.

Welcome to RidgeView Community Church

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

About Us

RidgeView Community Church

Presenting a 'VIEW' of God that 'CONNECTS'!

If you are church surfing and looking for the so-called 'perfect church' then continue on looking my friend. We are a group of people, probably much like you. You know you aren't perfect and neither are we.

We have a sense of direction and purpose, but to be totally honest with you, with many things we are just working them out day to day!

Here's what I can guarantee. We are a church committed to presenting a 'VIEW' of God that 'CONNECTS'. With our primary objective being to help people 'CONNECT' with God.

Philippians 2:12-13 – Paul the apostle says, "continue to work out your salvation … for it is God who works in you to will and act according to His good purpose."

We believe God has a plan for your life and it doesn't just involve attending a church on Sunday.

God wants to help you not only make sense of what you encounter day to day, but to understand it is Him who wants to work in you and through you, shaping your will so you can connect to His good purposes.

If there is an interest in connecting with God, there is an invitation to adventure. Adventure is defined as 'a rush of adrenaline, it is facing obstacles and seeing beyond them, it's enduring patiently, its tackling tough issues, it involves tremendous courage'.

A sincere desire to connect with God involves a willingness:

– to connect with the idea of forgiveness. – to connect with our own sin and weaknesses – to connect with God's blueprint for living (The Bible)

Ways we connect with God:

– participation in Sunday Services – teaching during Sunday School – interactive prayer meetings – an alpha program – nurturing a personal commitment to prayer & Bible study in the home

Our secondary objective is to help people connect with one another in a Christ centered way.

Matthew 22:37-39 says, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself." Some of you may feel you can work out the God thing on your own. This scripture indicates that God 's plan isn't for you to be an island unto yourself. I know it can sound startling, that God would use imperfect people as part of His plan for your growth, but our church is committed to presenting a 'VIEW' of God that 'CONNECTS' people.

Our programs are being structured to welcome participants from the community to be involved.

Together, we're striving to make a difference in people's lives – in all walks of life, and at all stages of life. It's our desire to equip and empower people to be all who God created them to be, and in so doing, become dynamic and relevant expressions of Jesus Christ in every sphere of influence: in our homes, our neighbourhoods and our places of work.

So why don't you join us on a Sunday morning to see if our 'VIEW' of God 'CONNECTS' with you! Looking forward to meeting you and your family.

RidgeView Community Church

Presenting a "VIEW" of God that CONNECTS!

Our Mission:

In relationship, help as many people as possible to, KNOW GOD, LOVE GOD and SERVE GOD with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.

Our Values:

People: Everyone is valued by God. Therefore we are committed to conveying our value of all people.

Pursuing God: Encouraging people to discover the Bible as a blueprint for life. The Bible reveals the character of God and teaches us how to love.

Family: We are committed to nurturing the whole person in every age group. Family, singles and seniors.

Growth: Understanding God's purpose for our life is linked to the growth of our church as well. As we grow our church grows.

Worship: In song, in our giving and in the expression of our gifts.

Our Vision:

Short Term: See L.I.F.E.

L – Life that builds a strong Home, a strong church and a strong community.

I – Intentional. Courageously making choices for change.

F – Faith centered. Letting the Bible shape our growth.

E – Effective. Creating measures to determine our effectiveness in these areas.

Long Term:

We value the intimacy and accountability that comes with being in a smaller church setting. As we grow it is our desire to plant another church in the developing north end of our city to reach its population with the love of Jesus.

We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in the Persons of the Holy Trinity.

We believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father's right hand, and His personal coming again at His second advent.

We believe that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer's behalf solely on the merits of Christ, and that regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe in holy living, the present day reality of the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord's supernatural healing of the human body.

We believe in Christ's Lordship of the Church, the observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism by immersion for believers, and the Lord's Supper.

We believe in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.

We are blessed to have been ministering in North London since 1982. We were Glad Tidings North, New Covenant Assembly, and we are now RidgeView Community Church. These changes all reflect the processing of our identity in the community. For a brief time we were Glad Tidings north because we were an intentional arm of Glad Tidings Assembly in North West London. They had in their heart the desire to see a Pentecostal Church on the edge of North London. As this new church began to grow and no longer require the financial support of Glad Tidings it was time to establish itself with a new name.

New Covenant Assembly, 1983 – 2004

In Luke 22:20, Jesus at what is known as the Last Supper, took the cup of wine and said to his disciples, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood which is poured out for you". 2 Corinthians 3:6 says "He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant — not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter kills but the spirit gives life". The name heralded the church's commitment as ministers of a new covenant.

In the new millennium we relished the richness of the church's name, but struggled with its estrangement, from a post church generation. Our heart is to nourish and equip Christians, but central to Jesus Christ is reaching new people with the gospel. Our disconnect with a post church society couldn't have been clearer as one of our seniors was asked, "Is the place you go to a 'coven'?" Wow! They didn't understand what New Covenant meant. Our assembly was a gathering place for...? This person clearly couldn't identify us as a church.

RidgeView Community Church, 2005 – Present

After two years of processing and praying about our identity we decided to intentionally identify ourselves with the community we live in. As a faith community in Northridge we include a portion of that name, "ridge," in our name . To go with Northridge Community Church might have created some confusion with our close neighbours, North Park Community Church, especially since we gather in the building they used to meet in before they moved to Fanshawe Park Road. "View" is part of our emphasis to present a "view" of God that connects to our community. If community is what we are building and our desire is to include people from Northridge and surrounding areas then "community" needed to be in our name. For us, that stands out as a welcome sign. It was also determined that we would clearly be identified as a "church" instead of an assembly.

The name RidgeView Community Church received immediate responses from some of our long time residents of this community that noticed the change in signs. You may say it is only a name. That's true, but if the previous name was an obstacle to a post church society that we so dearly want to connect the message of Jesus Christ with than change was in order.

Today we are all about God, the author of community. We stand committed to sending a clear message of community based on the principles of the Bible centered on the person of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy spirit.

The Holy Spirit. This Is Love. (Part 4)

Rev. Michael J. Lee

John 16 is about receiving and being rejected. In the midst of preparing them for rejection and even those who may see killing them as an act of God, Jesus says it is to your advantage that I go away. In this sermon we will see that the departing of Jesus changes mankind’s relationship with death.

Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

2 Corinthians 2:10-11


Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
