WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Bible, God’s word to us, is central to our relationship with God and each other. While there are some areas where sincere Christians agree to disagree (Romans 14:1-15:7; 2 Timothy 2:23-24; Titus 3:9), the Bible makes clear that certain truths are essential convictions of the Christian faith. Red Rocks Church considers these to be the following:
God is the loving Creator of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God is eternal and completely good, knowing all things, having all power and majesty. God exists as the Trinity, in three distinct persons, yet one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God passionately desires a relationship with us and towards this end continually invites us into a relationship of faith, friendship, learning, and service. (Genesis 1:1; John 14:6-9; 15-17; 16:7-15; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 4:9-10)
About Jesus Christ
God expressed himself in human form through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Christ is fully man and fully God. He is the perfect reflection of God’s character and glory. Born of the Virgin Mary, he lived a sinless life and offered himself as the only perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. All who believe in him are declared righteous on the basis of his death. He rose physically from the dead, ascended to heaven and will return again to earth to reign forever with those who are his. (Colossians 1:13-23; 2:8-14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Matthew 22:36-40; 1:18-25; John 1:1; 8:40,58; 11:33; 14:1-3; Hebrews 1:1-8; Acts 1:9-11; 10:42-43; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 5:8-10)
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit, sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ, teaches, comforts, and empowers us, giving each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character, and love among Christians. The believer receives the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation. The empowering of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, is available for every Christian. (Acts 1:8; 2:4; Romans 5:5; 8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 3:16; 4:3-4; 5:18; John 14:26; 16:7-14)
About the Bible
We believe that God speaks to us in the Bible, which is completely without error. It is our privilege to seek to understand God’s message and apply it responsibly to our lives. The Bible is our standard and authority in all we say and do. We believe that God inspired the authors of the Bible and are therefore completely trustworthy. The Bible is the final authority on all matters to which it speaks. We believe that God’s unchangeable Biblical message ought to be presented in relevant and contemporary ways, free of religious jargon and understandable to the people of our community. (Matthew 5:17-19; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:14-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2; Peter 1:16-21; 2 Peter 3:14-18; Joshua 1:7-8; Acts 17:11; Psalms 19:7-11; 119:9-16,105)
All people are created with dignity and value in the image of God, to live in a vital relationship with God. However, through our sin (failing to live by God’s moral standards), we break our intended relationship with God, fall short and we experience the destructive consequences of that broken relationship, spiritually and socially, in this life and beyond. However, God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue us from those consequences and to restore our broken relationships with God and others, through Christ’s death on the cross, a perfect act of redemption for each of us. Salvation comes to people on the basis of God’s grace through their faith in Jesus alone. They receive the free gift of forgiveness and are spiritually reborn through repenting of their sin and believing in Jesus Christ. Good works and a holy life, although totally unable to save anyone, is the natural product of repentant, believing people. (I Peter 2:24; 3:18; Romans 3:9-28; 6:23; 10:9-10; John 3:16; 5:24; Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:3-8; James 2:14-26)
CAMPUSES AND SERVICES
We are one church in many locations! Our campuses are led by a Campus Pastor, along with a great Campus staff, and each campus has amazing live worship at each service. The services at all campuses are identical, whether you attend at an evening or morning service. Red Rocks Church has the world’s best volunteers and we strive to make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave any of our campuses.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED WITH A LIFE GROUP AT RED ROCKS CHURCH?
For information on how to get involved with a Life Group, click here. New Red Rocks Church Life Groups kick off each fall, spring, and summer at an event called Group Launch. Our Group Launch events take place at all campuses and mark the start of the Life Group semester. Group Launch events allow hundreds of people to meet leaders, shop for the right group, and sign up right then and there. We believe that when people can meet a leader face-to-face, they are more likely to actually make a connection, join the group, and experience life-change in community.
WHAT IS THE PRIMARY WAY RED ROCKS CHURCH CONNECTS PEOPLE AND FAMILIES?
We believe that life change happens best when people are connected to group life, where God-honoring community is developed. We consider group life to encompass our mid-sized and small group environments. These smaller community environments we call “Life Groups” at RRC.
Practically, there will never be a way for the staff to minister to all the people that attend RRC. That is why we place such an emphasis on group life, where people’s needs are met, friendships are forged, and ultimately lives are restored by Christ.
This is a contagious and very missional-community to be a part of. If you read through the book of Acts in the New Testament, you will see that those who followed Christ devoted themselves to getting together and purposefully “doing life together” and invited others who didn’t know God to be a part of what was happening.
WHAT DOES RED ROCKS CHURCH HAVE FOR KIDS ON SUNDAYS?
We have created three engaging environments for our children to connect with God, grow with other children, and learn to follow God. We encourage you to visit our programs this Sunday. We offer all three environments at every service at Red Rocks Church. For more information, click here.

HOW DOES RED ROCKS CHURCH HANDLE BAPTISM (FOR INFANTS, CHILDREN, AND ADULTS)?
We believe that water baptism is an important and obedient act that follows an individual’s decision to follow Christ. However, we don’t baptize infants until they are of an age when they can make a decision for themselves to follow Christ and then to be baptized. For infants, we embrace the tradition of child dedication which flows directly from Hannah’s (the Prophet Samuel’s mother) decision to dedicate her son back to God. For more information about our next Baby Dedication, contact Kids Rock staff.
For many adults, baptism is the first public step of obedience to Christ. Baptism is for the individual who has received the saving benefits of Christ’s atoning work and has become His disciple. Therefore, in obedience to Christ’s command and as a testimony to God, the church, one’s self, and the world, a believer should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Water baptism is a visual and symbolic demonstration of a person’s union with Christ in the likeness of His death and resurrection. It signifies that a person’s former way of life has been put to death and vividly depicts his release from the mastery of sin and that the believer is a new creation in Christ Jesus. Red Rocks Church practices and teaches that once a person becomes a believer and a disciple of Christ they should get baptized. If you would like to know when our next Baptism weekend will take place, we will publicize those dates through stage announcements during services, social media, and in our app bulletin. Check there for our next dates!

WHAT ARE RED ROCKS CHURCH’S ONGOING MISSION PARTNERSHIPS?
Red Rocks Church is committed to a number of missions partnerships including, Compassion International, Convoy of Hope, Project Rescue and others.
These missions initiatives are in place for the next few years, so we are not looking to add new partnerships at this time. In order for us as a church to best fulfill our missions vision, we are trying to go deeper with a few organizations rather than wider with many organizations.
