Rivers of Living
Water Christian Centre (Rivers) is a cutting edge ministry with a mandate
from God to raise up workers and leaders for and beyond the 21st Century.
Rivers endeavours to raise up a people who are strong in the Word, in faith,
in worship and in giving; A people who understand that evangelism is the
mission of the church and will pray, go and give to world evangelism.
This year (2005) marks 10 years since Rivers has been in ministry
to the nation of St. Kitts, the region and the wider world. This significant
milestone was not achieved by chance, but was inspired by the Holy
Spirit, and was carefully designed and purposefully executed by the
Elders and Partners of Rivers.
The Birthing of the Ministry
Rivers of Living Water Christian Centre was birthed on August 13, 1995.
Apostle Dr. Allan Isaac and his family returned from Antigua where they
had lived for four years. He returned with a vision burning on the inside
of him: "Raising up a mighty people with God, utilizing all the resources
of Heaven and Earth to proclaim, promote and expand the kingdom of God”.
He began to lay the necessary groundwork for the ministry; putting into
writing the Vision, Statement of Faith, Mission and goals. The inspiration
for the ministry’s name came from John 7:37-39…Out of his
belly shall flow ‘rivers of living water’….. To which
he added Centre – a place of training, fellowship, worship and impartation.
The church began meeting in the living room of the Isaac’s home
at Shadwell Gardens, Basseterre. The first Sunday service was held at
ten o’clock with Apostle Allan Isaac as the Senior Elder and Overseer,
his wife Debbie Isaac as his Associate and worship leader and their five
children as the congregation.
The first series of messages preached by Apostle Isaac centered on the
theme of ‘Being Faithful.’ The family sometimes felt discouraged
but Apostle Isaac continued to encourage them to ‘be faithful’.
