AS DISCIPLES WE ARE LEARNERS
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; we're called to learn how to live this new life we have in Christ. As followers of Jesus, this makes learning about being transformed. The apostle Paul says in Romans 12 that we're to be "transformed in the renewal of our minds."
At Rockwall Pres we focus on learning who Christ is, how we view the world, how to address sin in our lives, and how we can live as co-laborers in his kingdom.
Learning about Jesus is about being transformed.
WHAT WE LEARN Together
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.
WHAT RPC CLASSES FOCUS ON:
The Story of God
FINDING GOD'S PURPOSES
We seek to understand how God has revealed himself to us in the story of the Scriptures. We believe the Bible is telling 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
FINDING OUR NEW IDENTITY
The Bible reveals God's Story to us, but it also reveals our story as well. The Scriptures expose who we really are; we're sinners who need a Savior, one whose heart is to heal and renew.
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
FINDING OUR PURPOSE
Finding our identity in Christ is to embrace his mission. 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.
