Beliefs

Statement of Beliefs Conditions to Salvation: Salvation is received through repentance toward Yahweh and faith toward Yahshua. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of Yahweh according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7) The Evidences of Salvation: The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12) The Baptism of the Holy Spirit All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of Yahshua. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49;...

Beverly and I would like to welcome you to The Rock Church of Shelby County website.  We invite you to bring your family and worship with us, where we celebrate the demonstration of God’s Kingdom at work in His church today. We are a five-fold, non-denominational, spirit-filled church offering hospitality to all who enter the church doors.  Expect to hear upbeat contemporary music as you worship with us.  Casual dress is welcome.  We hope to challenge you to have a passionate walk with Christ. We are all about strong family life and developing a vibrant walk with God.  Beverly and I have been married over 30 years, so we have experienced the trials of raising five kids and now enjoy our grandchildren.  However, our path and marriage has not always been stable.  In 1990, we became involved in and a part of The Rock Church in Mobile, AL, pastored by Apostle Aaron and Robbie Smith.  It was through this father/son relationship that we developed a true Kingdom foundation and...

Praise and Worship

Praise and Worship

Praise and Worship is such a vital part of our lives. The word says, “He inhabits the praises of His people.” When we sing, dance and express our heart to the Father, He is there. When He shows up things change. We can be healed, set free, refreshed and changed by spending time in worship. When David ministered before Saul, tormenting spirits even left! Worshiping causes us to forget about our problems and focus on the answer. It brings great hope and encouragement. We believe in expressing ourselves in singing, dancing before the Lord, raising our hands and clapping. Worship also prepares our hearts to hear the word and be changed. We have many gifted musicians but most of all anointed musicians to lead others in worship. So long the church as a whole has run musicians off out into the world because drums or guitars or other instruments were not accepted in the religious church. We believe as in Psalms that we are to express worship with all...
