Our Core Values help drive the mission of taking the
unchanging love of Christ to an ever-changing world
and provide guidance as God develops Rockside Church.
Simple communication with God, or prayer, is the lifeline that keeps us going. Talking with God is the most important conversation you can have. Prayer is to the Christ-follower what breathing is to the body and we move to keep our hearts breathing through prayer. Without prayer, we're just another organization.
Contemporary and passionate worship
creates an environment that welcomes God and helps
us connect with Him. In this type of atmosphere, individual
needs are met and people are refreshed.
We strive to give practical
tools to assist people in the journey of life. What
you hear on Sundays is designed to help you in a practical
way in your life Monday through Saturday.
In the foundation of this church
is a passion to help spread the Good News of Christ
around the world through giving, sending, praying
Christ came to
prepare us for heaven as well as help us enjoy the
journey along the way. A higher quality of life and
freedom is what is natural for the person connected
of Christ is most fulfilled when serving. We strive
to equip, support, release and empower every person
to serve God.
The person of the leader
is more important than the work he or she does. Genuine
ministry is simply an overflow from the life of a
leader that is well cared for and connected to Christ.
We care deeply about the people in our local community. We strive to connect, serve and build bridges of relationship -- bridges upon which the good news of Christ can be carried.
Less is more when done well and
with purpose. We streamline church activities so believers
have more time to foster relationships with Christ,
their family and the people who need to see God's
loved lived out before them.
Church doesn't have to be a place
where pretending and hiding occur. We offer a place
where every person can find love, acceptance, and
