We are an independent baptist Bible-believing church located in Beverly, Massachusetts, on the North Shore of Boston.

We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God who died in our place, because of our sins. He saved us, not because of our own righteousness, but because of His mercy.

A better hope is introduced, an assurance in which we draw nearer to God, as His own adopted children. God offers this salvation as a free gift. Will you reject it?

Our pastor, Kevin Kirby, is exciting, learned, down-to-earth, and knows the Bible through and through. A machinist and entrepreneur in a former life, Pastor Kevin has been a biblical counselor, family man, student of the word, and devoted servant of Jesus Christ for thirty years. He founded the River Bible Church at his home in June 2007 to glorify God, to evangelize the sinner, edify the saved, equip the saints, encourage the servant, and exalt the Savior.

Visit us on Sunday, or any day of the week. In addition to Sunday morning (10:15 am), we have services on Sunday evening (6 pm) and Wednesday evening (7 pm). We also have Bible studies on Tuesday morning (9 am) and Sunday morning (9 am). Or, stop in at other times for a visit. See below for a schedule and a map.

For biblical counseling, contact Pastor Kirby to arrange an appointment.

God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. While we were still weak, Christ died for the ungodly. One will scarcely die for a righteous person — though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die — but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
