Core Values

“A place to belong, a place to become”
We value providing an atmosphere and opportunity for people to come into a relationship with Jesus Christ and be nurtured in that relationship, discover their God-given gifts, and be released in God’s purpose and call for their lives.

“Make His praise glorious”
We value the exaltation of the name of Jesus, the felt-presence of God, and a prophetic voice in the midst of the congregation through the 9 Biblical expressions of worship.

“Bible-Based, Cross-Centered, Spirit-Filled”
We value the centrality of the Word of God, the Bible, in all we do. We value the power of the cross and the work Jesus accomplished when He died and rose again for every person. We value the present work of the Holy Spirit, active and living in the believer’s life and empowering the church today.

“In the city to reach the city”
We value the divine responsibility to love, serve and clearly communicate the gospel of Jesus to our community.

“A place for the whole family”
We value the place of the family and the vitality and strength that every age group brings to the house of God. Rock Point is a cross-generational church.

“A House of Prayer”
We value the ministry of prayer—nothing of significance happens except through prayer.

“Better to give than receive”
We value a generous spirit with our finances to support the ministries of the church, to help the poor in our community, and to touch the nations.

“Biblical Eldership”
We value the placement of God’s leadership over the house of the Lord to shepherd the flock and equip and release the saints for the work of ministry.

“A base to bless the nations”
We value the mission to support pastors, churches, and ministries in the United States and around the world through finances and association for the propagation of the gospel.

“House to House”
We value the importance of connection and relational community through LifeGroups for the full development of the Christian into the image of Christ.
