What We Believe
At White Rock, we try to major on the majors and try not to get hung up on all the minor doctrinal issues that cause so much division in the church. We have a unique blend of people from various church and non-church backgrounds. We have a number of pastor’s kids from numerous different denominational backgrounds, and I always say you can’t fool pastor’s kids! They’ve seen the worst the church has to offer, and if they feel like you’re legit, that’s pretty high praise! We really try to listen and value each other as we walk in community together. Jesus said his disciples would be known not by how much Scripture they memorized or what their theological position on eternal security was, but rather by the way they loved each other. (John 13:3) With all that said, there are some really important things that we do take pretty seriously around here. These are some core things that we believe are critical to hold to as part of this church family. . .
Salvation and Sanctification
Family, Community, Body
We believe the church of Jesus Christ is first and foremost a family. The invitation to be a part of God’s family through faith in Jesus Christ resonates throughout Scripture. We are first and foremost brothers and sisters in Christ, adopted as sons and daughters and growing more and more to resemble our heavenly Father (family resemblance).
