What to Expect?
We look forward to you joining us on Sunday for our weekly service!
Worship at Solid Rock is a participatory experience. We welcome you to join us in an interactive praise and worship experience.
Prayer during Sunday services allows us to acknowledge our dependence on Christ for building his kingdom and in our personal lives. We pray for the needs of the church and its members.
The message intends to communicate God’s Truth in compelling, relevant ways. Join us as we read the Word of God together, reflect on its meaning and learn how to apply it to our lives.
We give generously as an act of worship, not under coercion of any kind but out of a joyful heart.
Following the service, we spend time in community, learning more about one another over light refreshments.
"To make Christlike disciples both near and far".
To see souls transition out of darkness,
stand on the solid rock of Christ,
and faithfully serve God in the community.
People will demonstrate authentic worship, compelling others to walk in God’s wonderful light.
Our Core Beliefs
WE BELIEVE in one God —the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living
WE BELIEVE that human beings are born with a fallen nature, and are, therefore, inclined to evil and that continually.
WE BELIEVE that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
WE BELIEVE that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
WE BELIEVE that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
WE BELIEVE that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
