Our Pastor

Our Pastor, Dwight Bennett and his wife Tammy are very friendly, very approachable and they live life to the fullest with their wonderful family. Pastor Dwight has a passion to communicate God’s word in a manner that people can understand and use in their daily life situations. Pastor Dwight believes God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He believes God is still in the mode of answering prayers and doing miracles. He teaches that we serve a God who is the creator of all joy and believes that joy should be a part of all we do at The ROC!

What We Believe

The Bible
We believe the Bible is the perfect and divinely inspired word of God. The Bible is the ultimate authority for the church on all matters of doctrine and that we all should use the Word to build every aspect of our lives. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17)

God
We believe that God is a loving God and that we are created in His image. We are created for His pleasure and we all have a great purpose in life. There is one God existing in the unity of three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Creation
We believe that God created all things and that man was given dominion over His creation. (Genesis 1, 2)

The Father
We believe God the Father is a good God who loves people and has provided a pathway for all to be saved. He has created us for His pleasure and loves to be with His people and desires to bless us through our obedience to Him.

Jesus
We believe Jesus is the Son of God, the Savior of all men and was conceived of the Holy Spirit and was born to a virgin. We believe He died and rose again opening the door in eternity for all who believe and receive Him as their Savior. We believe that Jesus is building His church throughout the world and that our church is a part of the body of Christ.

The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit inspired the writing of the Scriptures, empowers God’s people through the operation of special gifts and guides people to their need of a Savior.

Jesus Death and Resurrection
We believe Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again on the third day and personally appeared to His disciples.

Jesus Bodily Ascension
We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His victory over the grave and that He will come again the second time for the Church. (John 14:2, 3)

Salvation by Grace Through Faith
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance of sin and faith in the perfect work of the cross of Calvary. (Ephesians 2:8, 9)

Eternal Life
We believe in eternal life for those who make Jesus their personal Savior (John 5:24; 3:16) and eternal punishment for unbelievers. (Revelations 20:11-15)

Baptisms
We believe in two very distinct baptisms. The first is water baptisms signifying your love and commitment to Jesus Christ by immersion in the name of the eternal Godhead fulfilling the command of Christ. The second is the baptism of the Holy Spirit given by Jesus for the empowerment of the church for the work of the Kingdom of God here on earth.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:1-4)

The Gifts of the Spirit
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit shown to us in 1Corinthinans 12 - 14 and that these gifts are still in operation today.

Marriage
We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Holy Scriptures. We believe God created marriage for the joining together of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24)

Praise and Worship
We believe that worshipping God is an outward expression of an inward love and respect for God. We believe in worshipping the Lord in Spirit and truth with an expressive demonstration of our joy and thanksgiving with all the means revealed to us in the Bible.
