The Rock Church. 

Its story is not unlike the story of many other churches. But it is our own.

The Rock Church began with a calling, a passion, and with excitement.  It began within the heart of a man and his wife who felt a certain call to step beyond the comfortable and into the future of obedience, faith, and trust. It seemed obvious that God was moving... it seemed clear that people were listening... and it seemed natural that there was no time like the present to love our city in some measure like Christ loved his church.

So long as there were people in our neighborhoods who had not encountered the overwhelming grace of God in their own lives, we knew there was a message they needed to hear. And so begins the The Rock Church.

Everything that takes place at The Rock Church is designed around one simple mission:

Helping people to stand on the Rock that is Jesus Christ.
  

From this flows our vision:

Seeing more of our community stable in their life, confident in their faith, and comforted for their future.

What We Believe

For a church to stand firmly in the world, it must articulate as clearly as possible a structure of doctrine that communicates its beliefs and guides its activity.  Here at The Rock Church, we give you two options to read what we believe and hold. 
 

(THE SHORT VERSION)

THE SCRIPTURES

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason.

GOD

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM,” and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

MAN/SIN

Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image and after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

SALVATION

Through the preaching and teaching of the Gospel message to all men, God draws those He will.  In response to that preached Gospel, the regenerated man is able to, by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ, embrace the things of God and enjoy the promises of eternal life. This salvation includes man's regeneration, his justification and sanctification, and his glorification.

THE CHURCH

The church on earth is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the great commission. The church actively embraces and practices the two sacraments of Baptism and The Lord's Supper. Each believer is an integral part of the church and voluntarily dedicates his life to God and His Word.

THE SACRAMENTS

The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in newness of life. 

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, a reminder of His second coming, and is offered/practiced to all believers.
