Devoted To God - Connected To Others - Influencing Our World
At ROVC we are simply a group of REAL people living REAL lives. This means that through the ups and downs, struggles and victories we strive to be open and honest about exactly where we are at. Our goal is that our church services, relationships and our entire lives are characterized by sincerity and authenticity.
We recognize that life has a way of wearing us down and stealing our Joy - that's why at ROVC we work hard at being a place that lifts your spirit and brings a sense of Joy and optimism back into your life. We firmly believe that in following Christ we are following a Person of tremendous Joy and that His will for us is to be a people who enjoy life and live it to the fullest. Through the good times and the bad our goal as a church is to be a beacon of light to all those who attend.
The church is not a building or an institution. But rather it is a community of people who have committed themselves to Christ and one another. ROVC is simply a family of people from different backgrounds, and different places, all on a common journey towards a deeper relationship with Christ and with one another. We believe that God infinitely loves people, that people matter deeply to Him, and therefore people ought to matter to us.
Becoming all that God created us to be is one of the most rewarding and encouraging experiences that life has to offer. At ROVC we are striving to help each individual discover his or her full potential. We value growth and transformation even though it often means tremendous pain and discomfort. Our goal is to become like Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We exist for God. He is the beginning and the end of all things. We believe that it is only as we live in a loving relationship with Him doing all things for His glory that we will find true meaning and fulfillment in life. Our desire is to know God, and to help others do the same.
