About Us

Our Church:

River of Life Baptist Church is a 'fellowship of believers who are ambassadors for Christ, serving as a bridge to the world, connecting it to Christ and the truths of His Word......offering hope and encouragement for such a time as this.' Our church was first established in the summer of 2009 as a church plant in the communities of Little River, SC and Calabash, NC. Beginning with five members, including Pastor Tom Gore, River of Life Baptist Church launched a small Bible Study at the North Myrtle Beach Flea Market in August 2009. From that small faithful group arose two worship services in October 2009. The first service met on Sundays at 8:00 AM on the premises of the North Myrtle Beach Flea Market. The second service met at the C.B. Berry Community Building on Highway 179 in Little River, S.C. However, desperately needing to expand, our church relocated its meeting facility to the Sea Trail Convention Center in Sunset Beach, NC in the summer of 2011. This location was chosen after a generous family donated 6 acres of land on Highway 17 in Sunset Beach for our church to build a new worship center. With the volunteer help of the Baptist Builders groups from all over the state, the first building was completed. We had our first service the new building on Sunday 20 December, 2015! As a new church, we are blessed to have support from other churches in the area and across the Carolina's. We understand our vision is 'to make disciples' by connecting the world to Christ. To reach this vision, we seek to be missional in reaching the lost and unchurched with the 'good news' of Jesus Christ by cultivating relationships. Each day is an exciting time in the new life of River of Life Baptist Church! Thank you for taking the time to find out more about River of Life Baptist Church.
