Ridgeview began as a mission of Oak Grove Baptist Church and was officially constituted as a church on January 23, 1994, with 136 charter members. Because of tremendous growth, in the summer of ’97, we began construction of our new sanctuary and education building that was completed in February ’99. On April 14, 2002 we broke ground on our new activities building, the ROC (Ridgeview Outreach Center) to host Sunday school growth and outreach activities. We’ve had the privilege of sending out many from Ridgeview to plant or pastor other churches and in 2016 the Lord allowed us to be instrumental in the planting of 1church Kingsport. As God continues to move and work through the church at Ridgeview, we pray that our history would show that we were faithful to obeying God in whatever he called us to.
Thank you Lord, for being my refuge and shelter, and bringing me to this wonderful church where I find comfort and strength in your world. – Doug
