About Us

Vision

OUR VISION IS TO BIRTH, ESTABLISH, AND MAINTAIN A STRONG WORD-ORIENTED LOCAL CHURCH. OUR DESIRE IS FOR THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF GOD TO BE IN MANIFESTATION IN OUR SERVICES AND IN OUR PERSONAL LIVES, TO HAVE A FAMILY CHURCH WHERE ALL AGE GROUPS ARE MINISTERED TO BY EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP, AND TO DEVELOP A CHILDREN'S MINISTRY WHERE OUR CHILDREN ARE NOT ONLY TAUGHT THE WORD OF GOD, BUT EXPERIENCE GOD'S PRESENCE. OUR OVERALL OBJECTIVE IS TO TRAIN EACH PERSON IN EVERY AGE GROUP TO REACH HIS FULLEST POTENTIAL IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. (EPHESIANS 4:11-16)

OUR VISION IS TO TRAIN AND EQUIP PEOPLE IN THE MINISTRY OF HELPS (I CORINTHIANS 12:28), THAT EACH INDIVIDUAL MAY FIND HIS PLACE IN THE BODY AND IN TURN HELP MEET THE NEEDS OF OTHERS (I CORINTHIANS 12:12-21). A CHURCH IS A BODY AND EACH PART IS DEPENDENT UPON EVERY OTHER PART. AS EACH PERSON TAKES HIS PLACE OF RESPONSIBILITY AND SERVICE, THE BODY WILL GROW AND MUCH WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED.

OUR VISION FOR CHURCH ON THE ROCK IS TO DEVELOP:

PRAYER: NOT ONLY TO TEACH PEOPLE ABOUT PRAYER, BUT TO PARTICIPATE IN PRAYER BOTH INDIVIDUALLY AND CORPORATELY. (MARK 1:35; LUKE 5:16-17; LUKE 6:12, 17-19; ACTS 1:14; EPHESIANS 6:18-19; ROMANS 15:29-30; LUKE 11:1; LUKE 18:1)

TEACHING OF THE WORD: SEVERAL SESSIONS A WEEK TEACHING IN DEPTH ON DIFFERENT SUBJECTS. ONLY THE WORD CAN MAKE PEOPLE SPIRITUAL AND BUILD THEM UP (ACTS 20:32). TEACHING, LIKE PRAYER, WAS A PRIORITY IN THE MASTER'S MINISTRY (LUKE 2:40, 52; LUKE 4:15, 31-32; LUKE 5:1, 17; LUKE 6:6; LUKE 13:10; LUKE 19:47; ACTS 5:42; ACTS 6:4; ACTS 8:4, 25, 40; ACTS 11:26; ACTS 14:21; ACTS 15:35; ACTS 18:11; ACTS 19:20)

WORSHIP: TO DEVELOP WITHIN THE CHURCH SENSITIVITY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE AREA OF WORSHIP. TO TEACH AND PRACTICE WORSHIP, INDIVIDUALLY AND CORPORATELY. (ACTS 20:20; ACTS 13:1-2; ISAIAH 40:31; PSALM 16:11)

FELLOWSHIP: TO ENCOURAGE AND PROVIDE CERTAIN TIMES AND PLACES FOR FELLOWSHIP. THE WORD TEACHES US TO ENCOURAGE AND EXHORT ONE ANOTHER DAILY AND THAT THE PEOPLE WE ASSOCIATE WITH AFFECTS US. (HEBREWS 10:25; HEBREWS 3:12-13; PROVERBS 13:20; PROVERBS 27:17; ACTS 2:42; ACTS 5:42)

EVANGELISM: SOUL WINNING - REACHING OUT TO NEIGHBORS, FRIENDS, RELATIVES, AND THE CITY WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST (ROMANS 1:16). MARK 16:15-20 GIVES TO US THE GREAT COMMISSION FOR THE CHURCH AND THAT GOD WILL CONFIRM HIS WORD AS WE SHARE IT. OUR GOAL IS TO EQUIP PEOPLE TO BE SOUL WINNERS IN THEIR DAILY ACTIVITIES OF LIFE. (PHILIPPIANS 2:13-16a; JOHN 4:17-18, 28-30; JOHN 4:38-41)
