About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Here's the deal, Solid Rock Community Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Solid Rock is a family of individuals that have decided to follow Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to become what God sees in them.

Where we come from

Solid Rock Community Church was started in 1991 by our founding pastor, Bishop David D. Gardner, Sr. Back then, our founding pastor imagined a church that was place where lives were changed - where everyone had an opportunity to experience the love and transformative power of God regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Solid Rock Community Church hosted its first gathering in September of 1991.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, Solid Rock Community Church wants to you become what God sees in you. You can find transformation, value, and purpose here at Solid Rock by simply following these next steps: Gather Sundays, Grow in groups, and Go in teams. By committing to this process, we believe you will experience what God has always planned for you. We are excited about your journey and we hope you start here.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Solid Rock Community Church. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Solid Rock family.
