The purpose of the Church of the Rock is to help people become effective citizens of the Kingdom of God by reaching, teaching, inspiring, and incorporating them into God's family so that they can be released to do the same for others.
Jesus commissioned us to "Go and make disciples of all nations..." Matthew 28:19 Therefore, our first purpose is to reach people for Jesus by making Him as attractive as possible!
Jesus commissioned us to make believers into disciples by "Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Matthew 28:20 Our purpose is to teach people to be His disciples by means of the Bible, God's inspired Word.
Jesus commanded us to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Matthew 22:37 Our third purpose is to inspire people with the Presence of God through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus commanded us to "love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:39 Our fourth purpose is to incorporate people into God's family in such a way that they receive God's love from others and are able to share as well.
Jesus commanded us to "bare fruit" -- to reproduce in the lives of others what He has done for us. Our fifth purpose is to release people so that they can touch others in the ways that they have been blessed by the Lord and His people. By discovering your passion, your spiritual gifts, and your personal style of your ministry, you will be able to find that special and unique place that God has for you in His family!
