WHAT WE SEEK TO LIVE OUT…
Our church Mission/Vision Statement & Core Values
Mission : Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”” Matt 28:18-20
“our job is to connect Truth that never changes to a constantly changing culture”
Pastor jeff (1st Cor. 9:19-23)
Core Values: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
We seek to evaluate all we do by our two core values:
Loving God & Loving People
Church On The Rock : Our church is a multi-ethnic group of people who have placed their faith and trust in Jesus. We are Christ followers seeking to live in an authentic, intimate relationship with Him and with each other. We are also a safe place for people to investigate the claims of Christianity. People experience biblical teaching that is relevant to daily living, upbeat music, and quality programs for the entire family. It’s a place of celebration where ordinary people can experience a life-changing relationship with God and other people. (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 2:42-47; Ephesians 3:14-21; 4:4-13)
WE HIGHLY VALUE:
FAMILY – Placing emphasis on helping Nuclear Families, Blended Families, and Church Family relationships.
AUTHENTICITY- Seeking to tell the truth in love and to live out what we believe.
INSTRUCTION- Teaching Biblical Truths knowing that our All Wise, All Knowing, Unconditionally Loving Creator always has our best interests at heart. As we fill our hearts and minds with His Love and Truth He transforms us for His Glory and for our own good (Romans 12:1-2).
WHAT WE BELIEVE….
Our Statement of Faith
Our Beliefs are firmly rooted in the Bible
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. It is completely trustworthy. (Psalm 12:6; 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Hebrews 4:12-13)
We believe that there is One God, manifested in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We see this in all of creation (Rom.1:20). We love our movies in 3D because we live in a three dimensional world with 3 states of matter for any material (solid, liquid, & gas – we love science!). Genesis 1:26; Matt 28:19-20; 2 Cor 13:14
We believe that JESUS is the only begotten Son of God, was born of a virgin, is wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, rose from the grave and ascended into Heaven. HE ROCKS and HE did all of that out of love for US. John 1:14; 3:16; 14:6
We believe that mankind chose sin (to live life our way and not God’s way) and that all people are sinners in need of The Savior. Gen 3:15; Rom. 3:23, 5:12-15
We believe that salvation is a free gift from God (free to us but it cost Jesus a lot) and that it is received through faith (trust) in the Lord Jesus Christ. Rom 6:23; Titus 3:5; Eph 2:8-9; John 1:12
