About the Church
Riverview Baptist Church held its first service on October 20, 2002.
Pastor Shawn Suri, his wife Brandy and their seven children were called of the Lord in August 1999, to reach the Green Bay area and its surrounding communities with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Pastor Shawn Suri is from the Oneida area and feels honored to serve each of these communities.
Riverview Baptist Church offers a variety of tools to help each person no matter the time of life. It is our goal to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many as possible. Riverview Baptist Church is a place where you can find a friend, a home, and a family. Please join us and be a part of this special family!
