The River Helsinki was birth out of the vision to honor God in Helsinki by bringing Sunday Worship back to christians lives. As the church of the Lord Jesus Christ turns to God with all it’s heart, it will bring about a change to an entire nation! We want to see Finland prosper! We want God back in our society.That will require a church that is strong in the word, un compromised in it’s beliefs, ever growing in faith, madly in love with Jesus and totally yielded to the Holy Spirit! It is possible to have a church service that is alive and where people can get spiritual nourishment for each week. We all need a fellowship of the believers! We want to see people blessed! Our heart is to see people prosper in their lives and we don’t believe that is truly possible to be happy and blessed without being part of a local church.
