Mission Statement

The mission of The ROCK Church is to fulfill the five-fold ministries, and to raise up the Body of Christ to do the work of the Gospel as set forth in Ephesians 4:11-16:

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

Vision Statement
The heart and vision of The ROCK Church is to educate and spiritually develop men and women of God to enable them to fulfill their call to ministry within the local Church and other areas as God directs. The ROCK Church embraces the scriptural promise of success contained in Joshua 1:8:

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

Statement of Faith

We believe:

The Bible is the Word of God:

  1. Inspired; (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
  2. Infallible; (Matthew 5:18; Revelations 22:19)
  3. Authoritative, Revealed Will of God. (Hebrews 4:12; John 7:17)

In the Holy Trinity: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Mark 12:29; 1 John 5:6-8)

That Jesus Christ is perfect deity and perfect humanity. (John 3:18, Mark 2:27, 28)

  1. His virgin birth; (John 3:16)
  2. His sinless life; (1 Peter 2:22)
  3. His miracles; (Acts 10:38)
  4. His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4)
  5. His bodily resurrection; (Ephesians 1:20)
  6. His ascension to the right hand of the Father; (Ephesians 1:20)
  7. His personal return in power and glory; (1 Thessalonian 4: 13-18)
  8. His millennial reign (Revelation 19: 11-16, 20: 1-7)

The Salvation of Man: 

  1. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ, grace through faith, believing in the heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord with the mouth will result in man’s salvation. (Romans 3:21-30, 10:8-10)
  2. That regeneration of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the new birth. (Galatians 4:4-7)

Water Baptism is an ordinance of the Church, symbolizing to the world that one has died with Jesus and has also been raised with him in resurrection power to walk in newness of life.
( Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4-11; Ephesians 2:6)

The Lords Supper is an ordinance of the Church symbolizing the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ as the new covenant between God and man. (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25, 28)

The evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father, is the physical sign of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the subsequent manifestation of the spiritual power in public testimony and service after the new birth. (Acts 2:4; 19:2-6; 1:8, 2:42, 43; Matthew 3:11; Corinthians 12:7-11)

The Church is the Body of Christ and the dwelling place and home of God through the Spirit. Each believer born of God’s spirit is an integral part of the general assembly and the Church of the first born, which is written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:19, 22)

In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost in that if they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and that they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:24, 28, 29)
