About Us

River Church Cartersville is a church established by Biblical truth and committed to making disciples.

Our purpose at River Church is to “make disciples” of Jesus Christ.

We do this through prayer, the Word, personal involvement, and fellowship.

We encourage every individual to passionately follow, serve and grow in Christ.



River Church is a church whose purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.

We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy, and compassion.

We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38.

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Acts 2:4

We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11



In April 2015, Pastor Allen and his wife, AJ, felt a call to pastor in Cartersville and purchased an approximately 10,000 Sq Ft building and 20 acres at 251 McCormick Rd. They, with their two teenaged children, set in motion the fervor for souls and the dedication to prayer and fasting that River Church Cartersville still permeates today.



Pastor Allen is a gifted speaker and participated in conferences across America. He was the senior pastor of two churches for 10 years. In 2009, Pastor Allen started evangelizing across the United States. In 2015, as he felt the call to be a pastor for the second time, he stopped his itinerant ministry to start River Church Cartersville.

Pastor Allen is married to AJ. Even thou AJ, a native from France, is involved in many aspects of River Church, she also works as an analytic leader in the industrial engineer team of Delta Air Lines at Atlanta Airport.
