Unless you've been at Solid Rock Church for the last 8 years, it’s hard to describe how far God has brought us as a church. This season of our journey began in 2008 as a church with a handful of people who were willing to take a step of faith for Jesus’ sake. We asked God to give us a fresh vision for the future that would allow Solid Rock to become a flourishing beacon of hope to our community. We didn’t know how it would go or how long it would take, but we were willing to trust Jesus to lead us. Our journey has taught us this crucial lesson:
In every step of faith, the Lord proves His faithfulness.
The summer of 2008 was one of the many defining moments that are a part of the Solid Rock story. Even more, we only have a story because Jesus has met us at every faith step. Jesus has repeatedly taught us that He can be trusted.
We now find ourselves at another defining moment in our journey. We’re in a moment similar to Peter and his brother Andrew: “And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.’ And immediately they left their nets and followed him.” (Mark 1:17-18) Jesus’ intent for Peter and Andrew is the same for us – the cultivation of faith! Jesus has created a defining moment where questions have to be answered. Do we stay in control of our lives, or do we learn what it means to give Jesus control? Do we walk by sight, or do we learn what it means to venture all on Jesus and walk by faith? Do we believe this life is all there is, or do we believe in the eternal? Like Peter and Andrew, are we willing to drop our nets and turn from everything we’ve previously trusted in to make life work so we can follow Jesus? Are we willing to go All In? These questions lie at the heart of this initiative.
This generosity initiative is the largest step of faith we’ve taken thus far as a church and we’re asking you to take this step of faith with us by opening ourselves up to the Lord and learning what it truly means to go All In – not just with our generosity but with our entire lives! Solid Rock family – if we are willing to follow Jesus in this landmark moment of faith, I believe revival would erupt, not only in our church, but in our community. I’m praying for nothing less!
by His grace and for His glory,
