Solid Rock Worship Center is a dynamic, Spirit-filled community of believers that is undergirded by prayer and the Word of God. Our purpose
is to win and mentor disciples by:
1. Exalting Jesus Christ
2. Encouraging People
3. Equipping Christians
4. Evangelizing the world
Solid Rock Worship Center is a Bible-based/Apostolic Pentecostal church. That means we seek to believe and practice only what is explicitly taught in the Bible.
Whether you are a seasoned saint or just starting your walk with God, we are a church for sincere disciples; folks that are serious about getting to heaven. (2 Tim 3:5, Heb 6:1)
Our passion is to help move people deeper in their walk with God; Introducing them to the rich, satisfying depths of God’s presence and power.
Based on scripture, each member of SRWC aspires to model these 10 qualities:
We are passionately committed to Jesus.
God calls each individual to come close and learn from Him. One of the primary indicators that we have become disciples is when our passions shift from worldly desires to Jesus. He is #1, and we follow Him with enthusiasm.
Luke 14:25 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.”
We have a deep Love for people.
Jesus modeled extraordinary love for all people, and He came to teach us how to do the same. He came to break down the barriers that separate us. We are meant to be a light to the world, and a blessing to each other — demonstrating the Father’s heart so that all may be reconciled back to Him.
John 13:34-35 “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
We have servant hearts
True greatness begins with humility. The Bible tells us that to be great, we must serve others. We must decrease so that Christ’s character may increase in us.
Matthew 23:11 “The greatest among you must be a servant.”
We are sensitive to the Holy Ghost
When we were filled with God’s Spirit just like the Bible records in Acts 2, His power and purpose took up residence within us. Now, He orders our steps as we submit to His plan for our lives.
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but continuously be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God's will is — what is proper, pleasing, and perfect.”
We are governed by God’s Word.
God’s Word is truth. As Apostolic Pentecostals, we have made a decision to elevate His Word above our feelings — even when it’s difficult. Acting on His instruction releases anointing over our lives and takes us to another dimension in our relationship with Him.
John 8:31-32 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
We live pure lifestyles.
Because Jesus is a good Father, He invites us to share in His character. As His followers, we have been forgiven and made holy. But because God is holy and we are made in His image, we’re also called to live like Him. Holiness is not a cage or burden – but is God’s path out of worldliness to real liberty and freedom.
1 Peter 1:15-16 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
We are Compassionate Ambassadors.
Many people in West Michigan (and the world) are searching for more. Even faithful, God loving people can still live with a sense that, "therehttp://www.mysolidrock.church/ must be more". They need someone who’s bold enough to share their faith and testify of God’s power and mercy. We are driven by love to reach them.
Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
We Live on Purpose.
The only way to know our purpose is to know God. Leaning on Him equips us to fulfill the tasks He has called us to complete. Like the Apostle Paul said, “I press toward the mark of the high calling that is in Christ Jesus”, so we live each day so that we may finish our race strong.
Ephesians 1:11-12 “It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.”
We are Just and Generous.
What we put our hope and trust in guides our thoughts and decisions. When money rules us, it steals our hearts and affections away from the Lord. We are stewards, not owners, and what we acquire for ourselves can’t come with us after death. What matters most is what we do with God’s blessings today which can have eternal significance.
Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.”
We gather together with each other often.
God said that it is not good for man to be alone. He wired us to function best in the context of biblical community. We are the family of God through faith in Jesus, so we don’t have to run this race alone.
Acts 2:42 “They spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together.”
