Connecting people to a


centered life and


centered living


Located in Garfield Heights, OH, at The Rock we try to take a simple and straightforward approach to church. With a warm and loving atmosphere we want people to know that faith isn’t a guilt trip. Christianity is relevant, church can be meaningful, and a relationship with Jesus is life-changing. You won’t find anyone here trying to pretend to be spiritual superstars. We are real people who are committed to deepening our relationship with God and others.
We are committed to traditional and vintage Christian beliefs; however, no matter where you’re at on your spiritual journey, we want you to know that you’re welcome here. We want to be a safe place for you to explore authentic Christianity or grow in the faith.
We are also deeply committed to service, justice, and compassion. We desire to see transformation of our people, our homes, our neighborhoods, our cities, and our world through sharing the Good News in meaningful and practical ways.
We desire to connect people to Christ through personal and corporate worship. We desire to connect the body of Christ through small groups. We desire to connect the disconnected through service and sharing the gospel.
We value truth, diversity, holistic outreach, spiritual community and kingdom partnerships. Read our complete value statements.

Everything we do at The Rock happens because of the support of our members, attenders, and friends.

If you’re new or simply checking us out, we consider you as our guest. This area is for those who consider The Rock their church home or who otherwise want to honor God through supporting us as a friend in the ministry.
