Welcome to the Rock Bridge Discipleship Blog!

At Rock Bridge our mission is to glorify God by connecting people from all walks of life to life in Christ.  We are passionate about that mission, as Jesus is the greatest treasure anyone can ever know!

The Great Commission in Matthew 28 states clearly: “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

As a church and a community of believers, we are charged with taking the Gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ to the world.  But it’s not just proclamation, it’s a call to come alongside people in an intentional way and disciple them.  We must help them see the all-surpassing beauty of Jesus and of the Trinitarian God, and patiently and lovingly show them how to walk with Him.  We fail people miserably when we don’t demonstrate the joy of obedience and alignment with His heart and encourage them to do the same.  Whatever sacrifice we bear in following Jesus, it is always worth it in the long run!

Our commitment at Rock Bridge is to find ways to continually encourage and strengthen our people as they live to carry out the mission of Jesus.  We are starting this blog as a place where we will post teachings, insights, and videos to help equip people in their pursuit of Jesus and in their desire to help others in their own journey.  We hope you subscribe and will feel blessed and encouraged by what we post!

Know that the church is the plan God has chosen to reach the world.  Together as a global family of God – the Bride of Christ – we will take His glory forward in love and sacrifice and help others see the surpassing greatness of Jesus!

The best is yet to come!

In Christ,
