About Us

What we are about

Who we are

We are Riverside Community Church (RCC), a member of the Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA). Our mission is to serve and minister to the community, all for the glory of God.

Where we come from

Prior to the establishment of RCC another C&MA church, Trinity Chapel, built and occupied the building. After five decades of serving God and the community of Nutley, it became evident that God was looking to do something different through the Trinity Chapel. At the same time Cornerstone Chapel of Pompton Plains, NJ, a church with a vision to plant daughter churches, began to pray for God to show them where to plant its first “daughter” church. After much prayer the target became Nutley, NJ. God brought Trinity Chapel and Cornerstone Chapel together and Riverside Community Church was born November 5, 1994.

Where we're headed

We want to see the lives of our local communities be firmly planted in the presence of God, so they are deeply transformed by Jesus.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.

He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
