God. We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God the Father. We believe that all things come from Him, and He is before all things. We try to exemplify through our business the love, grace, forgiveness and offering that was bestowed upon us when He paid the ultimate price for our sins. Not one of us is above another, for we are all at the foot of the cross.
"He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together." ~ Colossians 1:17
Family. Family can mean many things: blood relation, brother in arms, lifelong friends, the love of your life. At River Ridge, we believe that our members and regular guests are our family. Without them, without all of you, we are nothing.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." ~ John 13:34-35
Celebration. Life is meant to be lived, and lived abundantly! We believe that all of life's experiences should be apporached with a postive attitude and celebration. Our business exists so you might have a place to honor birthdays, weddings, family gatherings, bridal showers, baby showers, funerals, parties, reunions, and all parts of life in between.
"I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil - this is the gift of God." ~ Ecclesiastes 3:12-13
Education. Wisdom desires education, education is knowledge, and knowledge is powerful. We fully support any and all attempts to make ourselves and others better through learning, and we honor those who dedicate their lives to teach.
"Turn your ear to widsom and apply your heart to understanding." ~ Proverbs 2:2
"For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul." ~ Proverbs 2:10
Hard Work. We respect working people. We're all working for something greater. Hard work levels humanity, making us equal. We will gladly bend our backs, break our nails, and wipe sweat from our brows, shoulder to shoulder with you in the trenches of life.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters." ~ Colossians 3:23
Legacy. Our only true legacy is the family we leave behind, the morals and values our children learn from our example, and the character we instill in our children and grandchildren. KIDS are the reason River Ridge exists. We intend to leave behind a better generation and a better world than that which came before.
"Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children." ~ Proverbs 17:6
"Children are a heritage from the Lord. offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them." ~ Psalm 127:3-5
