The name River of Life
was conceived on 29th August 1998. The Lord laid this name
firmly on the founders during a time of intercession. The
theme scripture “He who believes in Me, as the scripture has said,
out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38
illustrates the basic goal of the River of Life Ministry.
The goal is for every believer to have a continual experience of
the power of the Holy Spirit. Those who are satisfied by Jesus
will themselves become channels of spiritual refreshment for others.
The River of Life Ministry’s
vision is to “Raise up men and women for the work of the Ministry”.
Using the Word of God and following the doctrines set out for the
New Testament church in the Bible. Assist Christians in their
spiritual development and equipping them in spiritual warfare, Ephesians
We intend to do this through
evangelism, cell groups, teaching, discipleship and commissioning
those who feel called, Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:10, Luke 24.
On the 29th November 2003,
the River of Life Ministry gave right hand of fellowship to those
who have supported them in the last three to five years. These
take the honorary position of being Founding Members of River of
Life Ministry. On this momentous day, they also signed the affiliation
document to become affiliated to the Free
Methodist Church in the presence of Rev. Allan Ellershaw
(Superintendent FMC for the UK).
On 13th May 2005 Reverend Henry Aggrey was ordained as an Elder
in the Free Methodist Church UK.
