Our Vision


Mission Statement:  At Rockford First, we are committed to the pursuit of God, authentic relationships, and a life of purpose.

THE CHURCH I SEE is a Church of influence.  A Church that is God-centered, people-empowering, and purposeful in its efforts.

THE CHURCH I SEE is a Church our city and nation cannot ignore.  A Church that is full of love for God, people and life.  It is a Church that is both numerically large and spiritually deep.

THE CHURCH I SEE is non-religious, naturally supernatural, and full of character, integrity, and passion for God’s Word.  A Church whose priority is to glorify God and share that “Christ is the Answer” to all who will listen.  Whose services are constantly filled with repentant sinners responding to Christ’s call to salvation.

I see a Church whose heartfelt praise and worship touches Heaven and changes Earth; a Church so dependent on the Holy Spirit that nothing will stop it nor stand against it; a Church whose people are unified, praying and full of God’s Spirit.

THE CHURCH I SEE is equipping, enabling, and sending ordinary people to live extraordinary lives.  I see a Church so compassionate that people are drawn from impossible situations into a loving and friendly circle of hope, where answers are found and acceptance is given.

I see a people so Kingdom-minded that they will count whatever the cost and pay whatever the price to see a city redeemed.

THE CHURCH I SEE is a Church so committed to raising, training and empowering a leadership generation to reap the end-time harvest that all its ministries are consumed with this goal.

I see a Church whose head is Jesus, whose help is the Holy Spirit, and whose focus is the Great Commission.
