To build the people with the Word of God and the people will build the church. We put feet to our faith through education, economic development, and community partnerships.
THE WORD OF GOD
This organization believes that the Bible is the only source of authority for all matters of faith and practice. We believe that the Bible is the inspired written Word of God and the complete strategy of our doctrine. We believe in the full inspiration of the Word of God to be the only authority in all matters and declare that no doctrine can be true or essential, if it is not found in the Word of God.
We believe that there is One God, eternally existing in three persons, The Trinity or Triune.
God the Father - The almighty, the Author and Creator of all things. The Old Testament reveals him in many diverse manners, by manifesting his nature, character, and dominions. The New Testament gives us knowledge of God the Father, Showing us the relationship between God and Jesus as Father and son and representing Him as the Father in the Godhead, and Jesus himself as the son (St. John 3:16,17).
God the Son – We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second person in the Godhead of the Trinity. We believe that Jesus was and is eternal in his person as the Son of God who was with God in the beginning of creation. We believe He was born of a virgin called Mary according to the scriptures ( St. Matthew 1:18 ), and became a servant to man; this servant came seeking to redeem us from sin and reconcile us back to God, his Father (Roman 5: 10) and now is standing as mediator between God and Man (1 Timothy 2:5).
God the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit – We believe the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity, transferred from the Father and the son, and is of the same substance, equal in power and glory, and is to be believed in, obeyed, and worshipped. It is a gift bestowed upon the believer for the purpose of equipping and empowering the believer, making him a more effective witness for service in the world. He will also teach and guide you into all truth’s ( St. John 16:13; Acts 1:8 ).
We believe Salvation. That the only means of being cleansed from Sin is through repentance, faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ and being baptized in water. We believe that rebirth by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation to the believers who ask for it. The Holy Ghost is an experience prior to conversion and sanctification, and that tongue speaking is the result of the Holy Ghost. When one receives the baptism of the Holy Ghost, we believe one will speak with other tongues, as the Spirit give them utterance (Acts 2:4, 10:46, 19:1-6). We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a Holy and separated life in this present world.
We believe in and practice Divine Healing. We believe that it is a commandment of Jesus to the Apostles (St. Mark 16:18) and affirms his teachings on healing by explaining that healing the afflicted is by faith and by faith in God we have scriptural support (Hebrew 11). St. James encourages the Elders to pray for the sick, lay hands upon them and to anoint them with oil, and that prayers with faith shall heal the sick and the Lord shall raise him up (St. James 5: 14-15).
JESUS IS COMING BACK
We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church at Christ return. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord ( 1 Thessalonians 4:16–17 ).
BAPTISM AND COMMUNION
We believe in Baptism, water baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the church to be observed until the time of Christ's return. They are not a means of salvation but are channels of God's sanctifying grace and blessing to the faithful in Christ Jesus. Water Baptism is an outward expression of an internal decision to walk and live a life in submission to God. (acts 2:38; John 3:5 Matthew 28:18-20) The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic gesture in remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins and redeeming us in our relationship directly with God by his body (bread) and blood (wine). (John 6:53-58; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:24-29)
We believe Marriage is ordained by God, confirmed by Jesus Christ to be between one man and one woman. (1 Corinthians 7:1-40, Ephesians 5:22-33; Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19)
We believe in Giving Generously and Cheerfully. We believe in seeking God first for direction in everything that we do, especially in our ministry of giving. We give generously and cheerfully in complete agreement and obedience to God with our finances, our time, and His word. (Malachi 3:10; I Corinthians 16:1, 2; Romans 12:8)

She penned and released her first CD – “Queeni presents…Sunday Morning”(2006) with music by Darin “Pianoman” Whittington (Brittney Spears, Changing Faces, Quincy Jones, Mary J. Blidge). She later penned her second CD – “Grateful”(2010) with her group NJ Praise, with music produced by Darin “Pianoman” Whittington, Franklin “Bubby” Fann (hit songwriter/producer of “Judah Praize”, Marvin Sapp), and introduced new music producer, Daniel Grant.

In 2013 she played the leading lady in the stage play “Once Was Blind” written & directed by Emmy Award Winning Producer, Glenn Barbour, Sr.
Pastor Queeni’s start in music was a divine assignment to prepare her for ministry. After years of running from the call, and a move to Orlando, FL, in 2010 she answered it with a resounding YES! Pastor Queeni was licensed in October 2010 and elevated to Assistant Pastor of Heart of Mercy Community Church, Orlando, FL in January 2011. In 2013 she relocated back to NJ where she and husband began to tithe to a ministry God was birthing through her, and in 2014 she gave birth to River of Life Christian Worship Center in her living room to eight people. Pastor Queeni’s down to earth delivery of the living word of God quickly spread and the ministry grew quickly. Pastor Queeni was ordained and installed as Pastor in July 2014 by Senior Pastor, William Andrews of Heart of Mercy Community Church of Orlando. FL. God has been steadily increasing the numbers and on the first Sunday in November of 2014 they moved to the Farmingdale Grange in Freehold, NJ; this building they now own.
Pastor Queeni is a powerhouse singer and preacher. She has been blessed with many gifts and talents and wears many hats including: Event Planner, Event Producer, Vocal Coach, Co-Founder of Mercy Drive Mass Choir of Mercy Drive Ministries (501c3), Member of Gospel Music Workshop of America – Orlando Chapter, Founder of Queeni Sings Ministries, Co-Owner/President of Inspiration Music Group, a Mary Kay Cosmetics Senior Consultant, Host of “The Story” Radio Show & TV Show, the Founder and Pastor of River Of Life Christian Worship Center in Freehold, NJ, and she is the Author of three books, “Diary of A Desperate Mind”, “Diary of A Desperate Mind: Freedom Journal”, and releasing 2018 “Diary of A Masquerade.” Pastor Queeni also mentors new Pastors and Entrepreneurs.
She is a devoted wife to Alton, a loving mother to a blended family of eight children, and she is the “Madea” to ten grandchildren.
Pastor Queeni’s quote for life is Reach, Embrace, and Enjoy - Reach for what God is calling you to do, Embrace every opportunity to serve, and Enjoy every blessing for your obedience!
