Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about THE ROCKS Church


Do I need to commit to attend either The Rocks Cannington or The Rocks Baldivis on Sundays?

Yes, it is important that you choose a church and commit to attending there. By committing to one location, you can truly get involved in and feel a part of what is happening in that community. You can also serve strategically in one of that church’s environments. It benefits you and the location to which you commit if you choose one church to attend.

How do I stay connected to the The Rocks Church community?

We would love for you to follow us on Instagram. You can also like us on Facebook and follow our Parent Cue Website

Is The Rocks Church part of any denominations?

The Rocks Ministry Inc. is part of Churches of Christ in Western Australia. In organising this church, our desire was to be an attractive environment for those who do not regularly attend church. Churches of Christ denomination enables us to be part of a network of more than 60 churches in our state, and gives autonomy to each church to decide its governance and strategy.

Do you provide a sign language interpreter for hearing impaired guests?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a sign language interpreter for our hearing impaired guests at this time.


Does THE ROCKS Church have membership?

Here at THE ROCKS Church, we want you to know that the moment you walk through the doors, you belong here and can consider this place your church home, no title needed. Since we don’t have traditional membership, you won’t be able to “join” the church as a “member,” but we hope you become fully engaged in the life of the church. You can engage with us through serving strategically, connecting in a group, inviting others, and giving systematically. Those who are fully engaged with us are considered our members.

We describe full engagement as:

How do I become a member of the church?

We’re glad you’re interested in engaging in the life of our church. We don’t have traditional membership in the sense that you “join the church,” but we’d love to help you get connected. Our hope is for The Rocks Church to be a place where you can walk through the doors, call it your church home, and begin to get connected, no title needed. Those who are fully engaged with us are considered our members. We describe full engagement as:

How do I become fully engaged here?

We want to be a church where unchurched people love to attend. In order to be that kind of church, we need the help of those who share our passion for inspiring people to follow Jesus.

If you share that passion, or even if you simply love this place, you can fully engage in the life of the church by doing four things:

Why don’t you have traditional membership?

Traditionally, membership has been known to represent joining a church, calling it your church home, and/or taking the first step toward involvement and volunteering. Yet the word “membership” has also carried a lot of baggage and has become an unnecessary barrier to involvement for some of our attendees.

Since The Rocks Ministry Inc began, we’ve viewed membership differently – as more of a partnership and leadership position – and thus have had prerequisites to becoming a member.

Over the years, this has caused some misunderstandings and feelings of exclusivity, which conflicts with our desire to be a church where anyone can get involved and grow.

We’re glad you’re here! Please let us know how we can help you take some next steps.

What about leadership?

At a leadership level, it’s important that we’re all aligned regarding beliefs and accountability. Because we don’t have traditional membership, we ask that anyone interested in entering into leadership meet specific prerequisites that help us know we’re on the same page. Each leadership application will include questions around the person’s spiritual background, leadership background, and, for many ministries, a certified police clearance check.

How do I become a leader? What are the prerequisites?

If you’re interested in leadership, please begin by looking through our website to learn about the different ministry areas in which you can lead/mentor. Once you’re ready, start the application here. Each ministry will have specific requirements for its leadership positions. These requirements will be listed on a landing page prior to beginning the application. Additionally, all ministry applications will state that each potential leader must:

  1. Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a clear understanding of salvation.
  2. Have been baptized after accepting Jesus as their Savior (believer’s baptism).
  3. Have a willingness to be held accountable to their church leadership regarding matters concerning your relationship with God and others.

Once you submit your application, you’ll hear from a ministry team representative about next steps.

What if I need a membership confirmation letter for a reference?

We are able to provide a confirmation letter based on your involvement. Please contact us for more details

What about voting?

Anyone with an existing partnership status and everyone who has engaged fully at some point in the two years preceding the vote will be invited to participate in that specific vote.



We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write the words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible, in its original autograph, is without error.


We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).


We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Saviour of the lost world.                                                                                                                                                


We believe that every person was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, everyone is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his or her own effort.                                                                                                                                              


We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places personal faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his or her sin.


We believe that Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every believer will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.


We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world.
