Be part of something bigger!
What We Believe
We are part of the Apostolic Church Uk and share its core beliefs. As a fellowship we could be described as both Evangelical and Pentecostal, but getting past the jargon it means that we love God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), that we want to tell our community about Him because we believe that He changes everything and offers us true hope, and that we believe that God gives us the ability to do this by the power or His Holy Spirit.

In society the concept of ‘community’ is being increasingly lost. People live further apart, they often live and work in different locations. It’s not even uncommon for people to drive many miles to a church. They work longer hours under more stress and overall are more suspicious of each other.
Our vision is to love Bo'ness so that we may reveal Jesus to the people of our town. We believe that the Kingdom of Jesus provides the best community to live within and so we will work to see His 'Kingdom Community' growing here.
A Kingdom Community is more than a gathering on a Sunday - at its core, Kingdom Community is about being family.
We believe that Bo'ness will be:
- a place where Jesus can be discovered & known
- a place where people grow in love and faith
- a place where disciples are raised and released
It's about intentionally building His Kingdom
We are a people who seek to engage, encourage, embrace and work to extend the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in our community. We value being part of something that is bigger than ourselves and believe that His Kingdom is expressed most fully and beautifully when we champion and serve each other, the town and the world, from a heart of love. We aim to demonstrate joy outwardly rather than a hidden treasure and we desire to cultivate a welcoming, invitational community that is founded upon the love of God .
Tom & Jess moved to Scotland from Poole, Dorset in 2018 following a clear call to minister & to make a home here in beautiful Bo'ness. They absolutely love the town & it's people & have a great passion for the Church to be known as a place of welcome & warmth as it demonstrates the reality of the love of Jesus to the community.
Margaret & David have been part of Riverview Church (formerly Bo'ness Apostolic Church) for a long time! Both have a great passion for the church, in which they diligently serve, as well as for the community where they are involved in various outreach & support roles within Bo'ness including the Bo'ness Food Pantry.
Andrew, originally from Shetland, is married to Abbie & together they have lived in Bo'ness for a number of years. Andrew has served on the leadership in Riverview since 2019. He has a great heart for the marginalised.
Graham & his wife Lynn moved back to Bo'ness in 2018 (Lynn is originally
from Bo'ness) & quickly found a home at Riverview Church. Graham joined the leadership team in 2020 & has a desire to see people set free through the power of prayer in Jesus' Name.
