Our vision is to be seen as a lighthouse of God’s Grace, a beacon of hope, a place where the hurting, the hopeless, and the helpless come face-to-face with God’s supernatural presence, provision and people who reflect the very loving, serving, caring, miraculous presence of Almighty God, Himself.
Old River Assembly is a place where the believer is challenged, equipped, and encourage to be ALL they were created to be.
We are all continually challenged to do strategic planning for Old River Assembly of God, and evaluate what we do best (strengths), where we can improve (weaknesses,) how we can better reach out community for Christ (opportunities,) and what might the enemy attempt to use to try to stop our efforts (threats.)
Please pray for our church and may God show each of us how to impact more men, women, boys and girls than ever, more effectively than ever.
Psalm 127:1 King James Version (KJV) Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Our church has multiple options where you can learn, serve, and grow. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community.
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins, to teaching and mentoring others.
Below is a summary of the ministries we have at Old River Assembly of God. Hover your mouse over “Ministries” in the side bar directory or over the headings, and click on desired ministry for more details.
All Church Ministries
Purpose: The purpose of the Pantry Ministry is to help provide a service to the Boy’s and Girl’s Harbor Home in LaPorte,TX by picking up food that they cannot use so the food can be used to bless others instead of going to waste. Food is distributed to ministries in our church to support events, to families in our church,
and to the community.
Music & Drama
Media & Technology
Children and Youth Ministries
Purpose: To give boys and girls, moms and dads, friends and family an opportunity to give every month their “change” to change the world. BGMC is touching every area of the world by supplying our missionaries with the supplies and tools they need to reach out to the lost through evangelism and discipleship.
Purpose: Mpact Girls Clubs is a program for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Mpact Girls Clubs provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders.
Read part 1 first, Trust In The Lord.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Don’t Lean on Your Understanding
The verse involves a positive–something you must do. But it also involves a negative–something you must not do. Don’t lean on your own understanding. Basically, the verse is telling us that we ought not to be self-reliant. We cannot pursue a course of action, a financial decision, a business move, a relationship, or an educational choice, simply based on our own understanding. It must be founded in our trust in God.
Self-reliance is such a deceptive trap. We begin to pride ourselves in something–our savvy, our looks, our intellect, our spirituality, our family, whatever. And when we do, it takes away our trust in the Lord. It has become trust in self. The result is a dangerous compromise that will lead to destruction.
