We hope that as you navigate through the website and learn about who we are as a church, you would see that our church is defined by much more than doctrine or vision. We are a church built on relationship! Relationships with one another, absolutely, but more importantly, relationship with Jesus Christ.
RockFish Church Anderson Creek is a Christ-centered, Bible-based, Spirit-led, Family-focused Christian Church.
Our vision is to see radically abandoned people given to the advancement of the Gospel.
RockFish Small Groups
Rock Groups are a regular gathering with a small group of people that allows us to explore and reinforce the core of what we believe so we can live it out, learn more about God, and to serve others.
"THE NET" YOUTH MINISTRY
MISSION / VISION / DNA
Our Mission simply stated:
Make -Equip - Release fully devoted followers of Christ
To see people know Jesus as Lord and Savior, and become disciples that make disciples.
DNA (What makes RCAC different)
We are a church that lives on mission.
We believe that servant-hood and outreach are not events, but are at the core of who we are as a church family.
We are committed to doing more than read the Bible, but to live it out!
We believe in the Body of Christ working together. We love to partner with kingdom-minded churches and ministries. #teamJesus
We partner with Open Arms International Ministries for church planting efforts and missions. We believe in partnering with like-minded ministries to expand the Kingdom of God.
PEOPLE BELONG BEFORE THEY BELIEVE
(There is room at RCAC for you to take a look and see what it is all about.)
DISCIPLES MAKE DISCIPLES
(Matthew 28:19 We believe when Jesus said, ‘Go Make Disciples’ that this was for all Jesus followers)
DIVERSITY IS LOOKING LIKE HEAVEN HERE ON EARTH
(Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”)
FUN: DON’T MISS A MOMENT
(Ecclesiastes 8:15 So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life.)
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF & OTHERS
When we can take an accurate assessment of ourselves, and let other people in on that process we become more like Jesus.
You are born into a biological family, and you are adopted into a spiritual family! These both are very important!
LIGHT UP THE WORLD
Use what you have been given, and let people see Jesus Clearly.
Jesus – The earliest statement of faith by the New Testament church was simply – “Jesus is Lord” and this is at the heart of what we believe.
The Beginning – We believe there is one God, the Creator of all and God is the personification of pure love and complete power. Because God is love and as such is inherently and ultimately a relational being, we understand the following: God has revealed himself as plurality-in-unity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) Relationship is at the core of all reality and God desires a relationship with all people.
The Bible – We believe the Bible is God’s “love letter” to humanity. Although written through people with the perspective of their own era, culture, and tradition, the Old and New Testaments were inspired by the Holy Spirit.
The Problem – We believe that God created all humanity in His image, regardless of gender, color, social class, or other form of human identity and thus all people are precious. We have all fallen short of God’s ideal for us and are in need of forgiveness and reconciliation with Him.
The Solution – We believe that Jesus is God’s answer to our human need. Through Jesus, God fully revealed His extreme love for humanity and unveiled His plan and purpose to reconcile the world to Himself through the Messiah – Jesus, rather than through a religious system. Through Jesus’ death on the cross, He made it possible for us to find forgiveness in a way that didn’t circumvent God’s justice.
The Heart – The restored relationship with God the Father through Jesus opens the way for the human heart to be changed from the inside out. The Bible teaches that the human heart isn’t changed from the outside-in by things like rules, regulations and harsh accountability. Rather, Jesus taught that the human heart is changed by God working in us and through us. His Spirit, His divine presence and love, is what has the power to transform our lives and free us to live authentic, grace-filled, outward focused lives.
The Church – We believe that the church is made up of people – the followers of Jesus to be more precise - and not a building or denominational institution. Although not an institution, the church is an organism – the living, active body of Jesus carrying on His ministry today. The church is the ultimate tool that God uses to reach out to those lost and alone, to show His love and compassion, and to be peacemakers in a world of brokenness, conflict and war.
The Future – We believe that in the end, God wins. God will make all things right throughout His entire creation and those who are a part of His family will live forever with Him and those who have rejected His love will not. The choice is ours.
