Our mission is to make disciples and equip the saints for the work of ministry by the power of the holy spirit and to restore the total and complete person (Spirit, Soul & Body) back to Jesus Christ.
Pastors Michael & Michelle were married in November 1999. Since then they have served faithfully together as Elders, Singles Ministers and Youth Pastors at Rock Christian Church of Charlotte, NC.
Commissioned by the Holy Spirit and their Bishop, John Gimenez & wife Pastor Anne Gimenez along with their Pastor, Errick Redmond, Michael & Michelle were ordained as Pastors and sent out from the Rock Ministerial Fellowship of Virginia Beach, VA. to establish the Rock Church of Atlanta in September 2002.
Twelves years later, the Rock Church of Atlanta has grown from a three member congregation inside of Capital View Elementary School in southwest Atlanta to an ever expanding harvest on six acres near Hartsfield Atlanta Airport.
HISTORY OF ROCK CHURCH OF ATLANTA
In October of 1968, Rock Church was founded when John & Anne Gimenez were traveling from Pennsylvania to Florida and stopped in Virginia to appear on Pat Robertson's "The 700 Club". The prophetic word declared, "…I am sending you to a people you know not of…" inspiring them to trust God for clear direction.
John Gimenez felt compelled to seek an empty church building as a sign of God's confirmation. Incredibly, an empty church building became available in Norfolk for revival services, which was soon overflowing with spiritually hungry people.
In 1971, the first Rock Church sanctuary was dedicated debt free! Soon thereafter, an educational building was built debt free, and in 1974, Rock Church Academy (Coastal Christian Academy) was opened! God continued to move and grow the ministry, opening doors to broadcast on national television, reaching millions of souls with the gospel. Then in 1977, the first round sanctuary was dedicated debt free. Twenty years later, the present 5,200-seat sanctuary was completed.
Today, the Rock Church has impacted the world with over 500 churches internationally. This apostolic ministry is committed to equip people from the "cradle to the grave" to fulfill the purpose of God.
