At River of Life, we also seek to empower every believer for a spiritual break through and mobilize them for effective functions and efficient service. So whether you are a spiritual seeker who is just starting to ask questions about God or a committed Christian who wants to sink the root of your faith even deeper; you can find a home here.


Crossing Over To Take Over

Our Mission:
Building, Making, Raising a new generation of people and equipping them with the word and power of the Holy Spirit, so that they can cross over and come into their own. We are convinced that every person has a destiny to walk in and we disciple them to discover their greatest fulfilment in life.

River of Life was started by the leading of God in January 2001 in the south part of London.
Through the instrument of Reverend James K. Ennin, pastor, an ordained Elim pastor, when God spoke to him through Ezekiel 47:1-23; about the River of God flowing into the lives of people to Build, Make and Raise them and bringing them to a place of impartation in the word of God for countless people.

Seeking to Empower
River of Life is a bible believing, thriving territorial growing church, with a mandate from God to Build, Make, and Raise breakthrough believers to change cities. Focus is placed on reaching people who are disconnected from Christ and the church. We are a multi-racial church with people from all walks of life that come to worship with us.

Building a Better Future
At River of Life, there is a strong emphasis on Building, Making and Raising a people for effective ministry. There is a strong manifestation of the Holy Spirit in our services.
