Who We Are
Church of the Rock is a charismatic, interdenominational, evangelical church. We would define these terms as follows:
EVANGELICAL – Taking a literal view of the Scriptures and believing it is our responsibility to share the gospel by telling others about a personal need for Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
CHARISMATIC – The belief that the Holy Spirit is at work in the church today, empowering His people with supernatural gifts (such as healing and speaking/praying in other tongues, etc.) to help them with the task of sharing the gospel.
INTERDENOMINATIONAL – Rather than being aligned with any one of the traditional denominations, we have positioned ourselves to be home for people of a diversity of denominational backgrounds. We are, however, closely related to many evangelical churches in Winnipeg as well as affiliated with an association of other like-minded interdenominational churches, primarily in western Canada and the US, called LifeLinks.

1. BEING THE CHURCH
First and foremost, the church must be a place in which God joins people together in relationships to form a community of believers.
CELL & CELEBRATION
Church life should include both the celebration of the weekend worship services and the intimacy of smaller relational groups (cells).
MINISTRY OF ALL BELIEVERS
All believers are called to minister and therefore they can serve one another in their God-given gifts and talents.
LIBERTY IN ACCOUNTABILITY
The church is unleashed when people are discipled and given a liberty to be released in their creativity and gifts yet required to walk in accountability with one another.
2. ADVANCING THE KINGDOM
ADVANCING THE KINGDOM
We must never lose sight of the ultimate mission of the church, which is the advancement of the Kingdom of God and bringing people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
BIBLICAL BUT RELEVANT
The church should never compromise biblical truths and imperatives, yet at the same time the church should seek to be relevant to the needs of a modern world.
HOUSE OF PRAYER
The church is to be a people committed to praying for others. Jesus declared, “My house shall be a house of prayer for all people.” (Matthew 21:13)
