The First Baptist Church of Riverview first met in the Columbia Grange Hall on September 15, 1963. In 1964, the church bought it’s current property from a woman who prayed that God would build a church there. Our founding pastor, Dr. Dallas Dobson saw the need for a Christian School. In 1970, with the help of Brother Harold Matthews, the school was established. One year later, the Christian Family Radio was started. Today, we enjoy the programs and music heard on 90.1FM KOLU.
The vision to reach people in the Tri-Cities was manifested through the Bus Ministry. Today, 22 bus routes bring hundreds of people to church weekly. In 1979, our main auditorium was built. God has blessed our people here at Riverview with an academic building, a gymnasium, a Korean church building and other facilities. Dr. Dobson was the Pastor or Riverview Baptist Church for over 34 years. Pastor Paisley was voted in and has been serving faithfully as our senior pastor for almost 20 years. Under his leadership, we carry on the original purpose of the church.
