All Scripture is God-Breathed & Flawless

We Teach

About the Bible

We teach that the Bible, also known as the “Word of God,” is God’s revelation of Himself to mankind. We teach that because God exists, so does objective truth, and the Bible is the flawless authority on this truth — including the nature of God, humanity, and the universe. In it, we learn about salvation, how to have a relationship with God, and instructions on how to live our lives in harmony with Him through our words, attitudes, and lifestyle.

II Timothy 3:15-17

About God

We teach that there is one God who is the all-powerful, all-knowing Creator of everything.

God is the “self-existing One” — a Spirit who is eternal and infinite (this means He transcends all space, time, and understanding), yet He is also relational and personal (this means He is actively involved in the minutiae of His creation, including your life).

Importantly, God is Holy: He has an incorruptible, unchanging will, personality, and rationality, which are the source and standard for morality, justice, and love; in these areas, He is “set apart,” and has no equal.

In relation to humanity, He holds many roles: He is the Father of creation; He became a full-fledged human as the Son, and He is the Holy Spirit that is involved in our lives and can fill our hearts.

Deuteronomy 6:4; John 4:24; Acts 17:28; Ephesians 4:4-6; Romans 8:9

About Jesus Christ

We teach that Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God. In other words, the eternal, immortal Spirit of God, as an act of love towards humanity, chose to become a mortal human being so that He could serve as the substitutionary sacrifice for our sins. He is fully God and fully man, completely subject to the human condition, yet without sin.

(Luke 1:35; Colossians 1:15; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:15)

About Sin and Salvation

We teach that everyone is a sinner, as Romans 3:32 states, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”

But there’s good news – salvation is possible by grace through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Romans 3:24 completes the verse above and offers hope to everyone, “…all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

We teach that salvation is through grace alone.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

About the Gospel

We teach that the saving Gospel is the good news of Jesus’s triumph over death (see I Corinthians 15:1-4).

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was crucified and died for our sins. He was buried in a tomb and rose again three days later. By doing this, we are offered salvation through grace! (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17)

The Gospel is the foundation of truth. We obey the Word of God by personally identifying with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. We do this through repentance, water baptism in Jesus’ name, and the baptism of Christ’s Spirit as evidenced by speaking in tongues. (Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)

About Christian Living

We teach that, as Christians, we are to love God and love others. The Bible states that the most important commandment is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 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 12:29-31)

We teach that our lives as Christians should be holy – inside and out – and we should worship the Lord with joy. (II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14)

We teach that the Holy Spirit has given us each unique gifts and abilities. These gifts are to be used to to strengthen and uplift believers as well as provide encouragement that God is among us. (I Corinthians 12:8-10)

About The Future

We teach that Jesus Christ is coming again, as I Thessalonians 4:16 says, “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven…” His return will be the final resurrection and judgment for all people. Eternal life is promised to the righteous and eternal death for the unrighteous. (Revelation 20:11-15)

Living a Spirit-Led Life

At Solid Rock Church, we are focused on living a Spirit-led life. Our choices and decisions, our behavior, and our lives are shaped by our relationship with God. By cultivating a dynamic and personal relationship, our lives start to mirror Christ’s character. The result is that we live like Christ!

Building Your Life on the Foundation of Truth

The Bible is God’s Word – is it perfect and the source of absolute truth. The Bible is how God speaks to us.

At Solid Rock Church, we base everything, including our teachings and messages, on the infallible Word of God, the Bible.

Sharing Your Life-Changing Purpose with the World

You have a unique purpose, and God wants you to share it with others – your friends, family, and the church. At Solid Rock, we encourage you to pursue God’s unique purpose for yourself, your family, and our church.

Growing in the Love of God

We encourage you to build a relationship with God and to grow in that relationship on both a personal and church level. Personally, we allow God to constantly change, transform, and challenge us through a daily process of discipleship. Through our church, we become disciples by reaching family and friends with the gospel and starting churches in every community.

Connecting with God & Others

Our church is a place where people from all walks of life can connect. Solid Rock Church is safe and family-centered, where believers can come together to worship the Lord.

Oneness

We teach the Biblical truth that there is only one God. That God is a Spirit, and that one Spirit has manifested Himself in various ways throughout history, notably as a human being, Jesus Christ.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; John 4:24; Hebrews 1:1-4; Colossians 1:1-15).

Apostolic

When Jesus walked the earth, He commissioned a group of disciples called “apostles” or “messengers” to spread the “good news” of His death, burial, and resurrection (Mark 16:15). Their actions – based on Christ’s instructions – is recorded in the Book of Acts. “Apostolic” simply means that we teach what the Apostles taught and continue in the Apostles’ mission.

Pentecostal

The word “Pentecostal” comes from the Jewish celebration of Pentecost fifty days after the Passover (hence the word “penta”). According to the Bible, the Gift of the Holy Spirit was initially given to believers as evidenced by speaking in tongues on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). We’re called “Pentecostal” because teach that this experience still happens today and is available to everyone (Acts 2:38-39).
