What is a disciple?
The meaning of "disciple" is quite simple – it means to be a learner.
But this doesn't mean that as disciples of Jesus we need to simply download information, it means we learn how to be like Jesus.
At Rockwall Pres we learn who Christ is, how he views the world, how he hates sin, and how he loves us.
What we learn
Learning about Jesus and the new life he's given us is a comprehensive task.
Our goal is to understand the fullness of how the gospel affects every area of our lives.
The Story of God
LEARNING GOD'S PURPOSES
We seek to understand how God has revealed himself to us in the story of the Scriptures. We believe the Bible tells one story that finds its purpose and fulfillment in Jesus Christ alone.
It's important to know God's Story, because through it we understand his purposes, what he's doing in the world, and in us.
The Heart of God
LearnING OUR NEW IDENTITY
The Bible reveals God's Story to us, but it also reveals our story as well. The Scriptures expose our condition: we're sinners who need a Savior whose heart is to heal and restore.
By focusing on the heart we're learning who we really are and how we experience not just life after death, but true life here and now.
The Mission of God
LEARNING OUR PURPOSE
Finding our identity in Christ is also about embracing his mission and the purpose he has for our lives. The command is to go into all the world proclaiming the good news of Jesus that all may know him.
God's mission is about finding our purpose over and against all other purposes the world tries to sell us. We have been invited to change the world.
