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, a 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.


This church was built upon the Rock of Jesus Christ, with a divine destiny and purpose. God has established us as a house of prayer, healing, restoration and worship for
all ages and nationalities.

It won't take you long to discover that this is truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter the most. Growing in God's Word together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we
cry, we learn and we reach out to our world with life-transforming truth.

We reach out to you as well. Our doors and our hearts are open. This Website is designed to provide information concerning worship, services, and ministries that are
available to you. We invite you to view our welcome video and the history of Rock Church. It is our prayer that your spirit will be uplifted today as you visit our site. There is truly
something for everyone at The Rock Church.
