Love God Love Others do Good
I John 4:8 reminds us that "God is Love." At Rock Church ministries, we seek to be a place where you can experience the love of God, share that love with others, and express that love by doing good in the world.
What We Believe
We believe there is one God, known to us in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus was the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary. We believe that he was fully God and fully man
We believe that Jesus Christ lived, died upon the cross for our sins, was laid in the tomb, and on the third day rose from the dead.
We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. We believe that all that we need for salvation is found in the Holy Scriptures of the Bible.
We acknowledge the sovereignty of God. We also believe that in his love for us, God has given the gift of free will. While we seek God’s guidance and direction for our lives, God does not determine our actions. We are free to make our own decisions, and are responsible for our actions. This free will includes the ability to accept or reject Jesus as the leader of our lives and the forgiver of our sins.
SALVATION By Faith Alone
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus. No amount of good works can save us.
Having accepted Christ, we will want to express our faith by good works. However, these good works are not a means to salvation.
The first step in our faith journey is to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This first step is often called “Justification”. Following this first step, we begin a lifelong process of becoming more Christ-like. This process is called sanctification
Ministry of all believers
We are all gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit, and each of us has a calling to express those gifts as a part of the work of Christ and His church. Therefore we are all ministers of the Gospel
At Rock Church, we have an open communion table. You don't have to be a member of Rock Church or any UMC church to receive communion, all are welcome. You just need to be one who loves Jesus and receives His sacrifice for the forgiveness of your sins.
