What is your weekend worship experience like?
Each weekend at The Rock Church you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music and practical, biblically based messages you can understand.
What should I do during Praise & Worship?
During our time of Praise & Worship, those who are physically able, should stand in honor of God, He's worthy! Open your mind and heart to the singing done by the Praise Team and join in by singing, clapping your hands or lifting your hands in worship. Allow yourself to be moved by the spirit in your own way...He is worthy!
Can I expect the worship experience to start at the same time week to week?
We embrace "order and excellence" and ALWAYS start all experiences on time.
Is there Bible Study?
Yes! Each week on Tuesday at 7pm PST we have our Rock Recharge Conference Call Bible Study. It is an intensive bible study designed for us to delve deeper into the word. This call is essential for Rock Church members. Otherwise we are literally missing half of what God has to say to us each week! In addition to Rock Church members, we are blessed to have family and well wishers from all over the country who call in. The call in info is listed below.

What happens when I visit for the first time?
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not make it awkward or weird by having you stand up. It is quite normal to desire to check things out before deciding if this is the church for you and that is totally cool with us.
What should I wear?
At The Rock we care much more about your soul than your clothes. Wear what feels comfortable to you. You can find anything on the spectrum from casual clothes to business casual, what makes you comfortable is what we prefer.
Where are you located?
The Rock Church Weekend Worship Experience convenes every Sunday from 10am to about 11:30am at The Maya Cinema Movie Theater - 4085 Century Boulevard, Pittsburg, CA.
What about my children?
Your children ages 2-6 will begin their experience by participating in The Rock Church corporate praise and worship. They are then dismissed and signed into The Rock Kidz Experience by parents. Your children will receive a biblically-based, interactive, experiential lesson, snacks, crafts and connection, all facilitated by our licensed, trained and background checked childcare providers.
When is communion served?
We do not have a prescheduled time period for serving communion. We are led by the Spirit, not tradition. Communion is served as our Pastor is led.
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4;2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16;Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14;Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19 1 Timothy 3:16 Ephesians 4:5
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16;28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21;Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, regenerates the believing sinner, indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Genesis 1:2; Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Acts 2:37-39 Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. Repentance, a turn away from sin and a turn towards God, water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus who died for our sins, and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and is evidenced by a changed life.
Matthew 28:19, John 3:5, John 3:16, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:37-39, Acts 8:11-40, Acts 10:42-48, Acts 19:1-6
We believe in the personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope. There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
