South Rock Christian Church is far more than a building.

It's people, imperfect people who live under the grace of God... and we're eager to share that grace with others.  No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, South Rock is a place where you can grow in your relationship with God and with others.  It's a place where it's okay to not be okay.  A place where you can be accepted as you are, experience real grace, and heal from your past hurts.

Come as you are!

We have a huge heart for young people, so our SR Kids Ministry is the perfect place for your kids to learn that Jesus loves them and wants the best for them.  Our SR Students Ministry is an awesome place for your teens to grow in their faith and to make lasting friendships.

The bottom line.

South Rock is made up of a bunch of imperfect people trying our best to be more and more like Jesus every day.  We hope you'll join us for one of our weekend services.


If you'd like to learn more, you'll find tons of information on this site about ministries for children, youth and adults.


What we believe

We believe in one God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


We believe God is the creator of all things.


We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son and Savior of the world.


We believe in the Holy Spirit, who every believer receives at conversion.


We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.


We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned and, as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.


We believe that salvation - the forgiveness of sins - comes by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.


We believe the Bible teaches that the pattern to receive Christ as Savior is to believe in Christ as God's Son and Savior of the world, to repent of personal sin, to confess Christ publicly, and to be immersed in water baptism.


We believe that the church, the body and bride of Christ, was founded on the day of Pentecost, and consists of all Christians worldwide.


We believe that God has ordained elders to exercise spiritual leadership and authority over this church.


We believe Christ followers are given spiritual gifts to minister to others.


One of the most common questions that we get asked at SOUTH ROCK Christian Church is this one - "Why Immersion?"  Perhaps you have visited our church, and you've seen that area on the right side of the stage, "what kind of a hot-tub is that, and what is it for?"  Maybe you grew up in a church that baptized infants, or haven't had a Christian background and are wondering why we feel a person needs to be immersed.


First of all, let me assure you that you are not alone in our congregation.  Many of our people grew up as Catholics, and many in denominational backgrounds that do not immerse.  And I also want to assure you that we don't believe baptism to be any more or less important than any of the other steps in accepting God's grace (ie. faith, repentance, confession, belief).  We also do not believe that there is anything special in the water.  It is plain Derby water.  The purpose of baptism is symbolic and supernatural.
