RVA Light is welcome to all walks of life, offering our neighbors the benefit of social support and a community that is Christ-centered, Bible-based, and active in love. The word Christ means The Anointed. Jesus alone was given this title because God anointed (or chose) him to help us today, to give us eternal life, and to bring his reign of justice and peace over all the earth. We believe this based off the evidence that God raised Jesus from the dead to live forever more. We at RVA Light are followers of Jesus Christ and want to allow him to work through us doing what he did during his earthly ministry - to share the Good News in both word and deed. As we learn about the individual lives of our neighbors through conversations and relationships that are built over time, we hope to grow closer to Jesus and to a deeper understanding of God's love and plan for each of us and the earth.
