Riverpark is a unique church located at what used to be Hamel’s Amusement Park in Shreveport, Louisiana. It is our dream to see the joy and life come back to The Park, and the love of Jesus spread throughout our cities.
Serving Thirsty People
Is there a greater calling for a Christian? When Jesus wanted to show what greatness was, He washed His disciples feet. Our mission is not only to serve people with physical water, but to serve them with the life-giving water of Jesus.
More Than Sundays
Being a Christian has more to do with your everyday life than what goes on between the four walls of a worship center on a Sunday. You are the church. Be the church every day.
In The Bible Out Of The Box
What do we believe? The Bible. Valuing creativity, we stand firmly rooted in the Word of God while reaching beyond religious barriers. God’s not in a box and we believe that His Church shouldn’t be either.
COME AS YOU ARE!
Weekend Worship Experiences
Sundays 9:00 & 11:00am at 3232 E 70th Street. If you’re visiting for the first time, stop by the blue tent at the entrance to the park for your free gift!
Our pastoral staff and executive lead team are a vital part of Riverpark. But nothing would be possible without our amazing staff & faithful volunteers!
Mark & Laquita Briggs
Mark & Laquita Briggs are passionate about people & helping them discover all that Christ has to offer. Their mission is to use all of their God-given talents to help people become better. Their transparency yields a deep, honest, and open relationship with God & with people.
Together Mark & Laquita enjoy fitness, playing tennis, working on their farm, and spending time with one another, their children, and their grandchildren.
We Believe that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)
We Believe that “salvation is found in no other name under heaven given to man by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
We Believe “if we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8)
We Believe “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
We Believe that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” and can fully redeem and powerfully use even those who consider they have been “the worst”. (1 Timothy 1:15)
We Believe God “is patient, not wanting any to perish but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
We Believe that all scripture is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)
We Believe that every believer in Christ is the “temple of the Holy Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
We Believe we have been “baptized by the one Spirit into one body” (1 Corinthians 12:13) and recognize the value and equality of all members of the body of Christ. We are “all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:29) We actively support the unity of all believers eclipsing all denominational, economic or ethnic diversities.
We Believe in the operation of the gifts. There are “different kinds of gifts but the same Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:4)
We Believe that all things should “be done decently and in order.” (1 Corinthians 14:41)
We Believe “our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so they will be like His glorious body.” (Philippians 3:21)“And so shall we forever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:17) Until then, we believe we are to strive to “live holy and Godly lives as we look forward to the day of God.” (2 Peter 3:11-12)
Connect Groups are a way for us to continue to connect with one another as Riverpark continues to grow. Frisbee golf to book studies, new Connect Groups launch in our spring, summer & fall semesters. You can join one or twenty each semester!
Our mission and heartbeat is found in immersing children in the life-changing love of Jesus Christ. At Riverpark your child will learn that God’s love is steadfast. Through fundamental Bible teachings and worship, we give children the chance to encounter Jesus on a personal level. Here, your child will develop the solid foundation necessary to cultivate a lifelong relationship with Jesus.
GET YOUR KIDS INVOLVED IN THE EXCITEMENT OF RIVERPARK!
At Riverpark, we believe that church is for life. Not just any life, but an overflowing, epic journey into relationship with Jesus. Not just a relationship with Jesus, but a group of friends you can count on when life gets real and times get tough.
God made us for relationship. We were created for community. Community helps lead us to Him; that’s what He designed us for. The Young Adult Community is a place to be led closer to Christ by a family of believers, to find strength and support, to step into your destiny and help others do the same.
At Riverpark, we are all about serving. Christ came to serve, not to be served, and as His Church, it is our responsibility and pleasure to do the same!
Serve At Events
If you would like to get involved with what Riverpark is doing, one of the best ways is by working with us to serve our cities! We serve at many community events in which we encourage our Riverpark family to come out and lend a helping hand. If you would like to serve with us, find an event and register by clicking the “Registrations” button below.
From guest relations to production. From facilities to student ministry. We want to plug you in to the spot that’s just perfect for you! And how we do that is through Discover Sessions! The first of four classes is on the first Sunday of every month at 12:45 in the Campus Center. So if you want to serve on a team, we’ll see you there!
