Who We Are 2016-11-09T14:35:54+00:00

Our Vision

We are a family that pursues the heart and presence of God, compelling us to radically love and disciple others through God’s supernatural power.

Our Mission

Pursue God, Embrace People, and Transform Society through Real Community.

Our Motto

Unity in the essentials, liberty in the non-essentials, and love in all things.

What We Believe

• In one God; Maker of all things who eternally exists in Trinity as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (I John 5:4-7; John 1:1-14)

• In our Lord Jesus Christ who is fully God and fully Human; His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His coming return in power and glory. (I Cor. 15:3; I Peter 2:23-24; John 3:16)

• That the Bible in the original text, is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (II Tim. 3:16)

• in the Fall of Man and the Plan of Redemption; We believe that Christ was the Lamb of God and that His shed blood was the atonement for our sin. We believe we are saved by God’s grace through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3, 16) ( Col 4:4-7 ) ( Eph 2:8-9 )

• That Jesus has provided for our healing: physical, emotional, and spiritual (I Peter 2:24). Because it is God’s heart to heal (Luke5:12-13), we pray for and believe in divine healing, even though there are times when people are not healed.(Mark 16:18) ( James 5: 13-15 ).

• That marriage is a covenant established by God, between one man and one woman. A believer should pursue a marriage relationship with a person of the Christian faith. God hates divorce and its effects, but loves the divorced person and desires to restore and bless them. Remarriage is acceptable by God, and a remarried person is not considered less in God’s sight. The practices of sex outside of marriage, pornography, homosexual, lesbian, and transsexual behavior, along with same sex marriage are not ordained by God and are not acceptable practices. We are faithful to God’s Word as followers of Jesus, but hold our views with no sense of self-righteousness as we are all in need of God’s love and grace. (Matthew 19:3-9; I Cor 7:27-28 ) ( 2 Cor 6: 14-15 ) (Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:9-11).

• That water baptism is a public declaration of the inward transformation of the new birth for a believer. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Acts 2:38) We are not saved through baptism, yet it demonstrates that we have received a new life in Christ.

• That the Lord’s supper is a celebration for all believers. It symbolizes our participation in the new covenant that was sealed by Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross. The elements are representative of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and God ministers to His people through these elements. (1 Cor 11:23-28; Luke 22:14-22)

• That the Holy Spirit dwells in the believer from the moment of the new birth. The Holy Spirit draws the believer closer to God, imparting spiritual gifts and empowering ministry. The infilling of the Holy Spirit is essential for the spirit-filled life, for operating in His giftings, and bearing His fruit. (John 14:26, 15:26; Acts 1:8; Mark 16:15-20; 1 Cor3:17; Galatians 5:16-25)

• In the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to every believer to empower an individual to display the reality of Jesus Christ. Also, it helps to lead the believer into victorious living and to continually equip them for practical, effective spirit-filled ministry and service. ( Acts 1: 5, 8 ) ( Eph 5: 18 ) The spirit filled life is amazingly empowering, not limited to a one-time experience.

• The gifts of the Spirit operate today in all believers. We believe that the gift of the Holy Spirit spoken of in I Cor 12:7-11 have not passed away, but are still in operation today. Believers need these gifts to help others, and impact the world for Jesus Christ just as in the first century.

• That intercession and prayer are essential and foundational to the ministry of the church. (Matt 6:9-13; 2 Cor 10:3-5; Romans 8:26-28)

• That everything we have comes from the Father and that the giving of tithes and offerings are an expression of joy and thanksgiving for His provision. The Biblical first fruit tithe (10%) is a helpful guide and giving should not be out of obligation, but as led by the Holy Spirit .(Matt 6:20-21, 23) ( Luke 11:42)

• In the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to carry the Gospel to the entire world. God commands all believers to carry the Good News of Jesus Christ to the all of the world and to make disciples (followers of Jesus) of all peoples. Our mission is to reach Jerusalem (our community), Judea (surrounding areas), Samaria (especially to difficult areas), and to the ends of the world.( Matt 28:18-20 ).

• The second coming of Jesus Christ. Regardless of which position you hold, whether it is pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, post-tribulation, or some other position, we are certain of one thing from the Bible: “He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.” At the Rock we work diligently at preparing ourselves for His return. That preparation includes loving God with all our hearts, and living our lives in a consecrated, purposeful way, while reaching out to a lost and dying world.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me
