Solid Rock Christian Fellowship is about “joining God in loving people into following Jesus.”
Joining God – We declare our dependence upon our Lord and recognize that He is our strength; without Him we can do nothing. We also gladly join in partnering with God to promote His kingdom purposes in the world. We are invited by Jesus, through the power of His Spirit, to carry His mission forward in our world.
Loving People – Jesus said, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” Our strong desire is to communicate the same love that God gives us to those in the community of believers. In addition, God’s love is for all the world, thus as His people, we seek to love others as Christ loves us.
Following Jesus – Jesus’ call to “follow me” was an invitation to enter into a teacher-student relationship with the king of the universe. As we follow, Jesus says, “a disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.” Thus, connecting others in a student-teacher relationship with Jesus, is our greatest pleasure and greatest responsibility. As we follow, God’s Spirit transforms us into the image of Jesus.
At Solid Rock Christian Fellowship, we do not do any of these aspects perfectly, but our desire is to grow in our dependence on God, learn to love like Jesus, and follow Him more closely and extend that invitation to our world.
Our Core Values
We have seven core values. Our core values are not additional programs that we seek to be involved with, but instead are values which we desire to have infiltrate every facet and ministry at Solid Rock Christian Fellowship. By their very nature, each core value is both a reality and a dream: they both currently impact what we do while we still have progress to make on each one!
We believe that the Bible is our all-sufficient and trustworthy authority for salvation, life and ministry. (II Timothy 3:16-17)
Intercessory Prayer – we believe that God-dependent prayer unlocks God’s power and must permeate the life and ministry of the church (His people). (Matthew 7:7-11)
We believe that life-changing growth best occurs in the context of authentic community where people lovingly serve and pray for each other. (Romans 12:9-21)
We believe that involvement in evangelism and discipleship ministries is the responsibility of all believers, serving together in loving unity. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
We believe that the church is to provide opportunity for the development of spiritually healthy individuals, marriages and families. (Titus 2)
We believe that the church is to be led by spiritually qualified leaders who assume responsibility to equip believers for spiritual growth and mission fulfillment. (I Peter 5:1-3)
We believe that God’s people are to gather regularly for worship, prayer, fellowship and relevant teaching of God’s Word in order to be encouraged and strengthened for life and ministry. (Hebrews 10:19-25)
