Our two Riverbanks
We have set for ourselves two main objectives as a church, we call them our “Riverbanks.”
Riverbanks help direct a flow of water to its end destination and, more importantly, ensure that the river does not become stagnant,
or, worse still, a swamp.
1. To know Christ
This translates to all that we do in our local church, from Sunday corporate gatherings to prayer meetings, Life groups (adult small groups), 620 Students, Hope Rock Kids or any of our leadership training and equipping courses. This is how we as a church get to know our King better and in a ever growing way!
Matthew 22:37-40 (ESV)
37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
2. To make Him known
Making Christ known guides all that we do in our community and around the world. We are always looking for ways to make Christ known through local outreaches and international mission trips.
Hope Rock Church is committed to going and making disciples wherever the Lord leads: next door and to the nations!
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Hope Rock Church is accountable to the NCMI translocal team, whom we partner with. “Translocal” refers to a team that ministers from local churches to other local churches.
Steve and Teri Barr serve on the NCMI translocal team and are our immediate accountability on the team. They are part of OneLife Church in Houston.
Statement of faith
During the 16th century, some 500 years ago, Jesus intervened in the life of the church. The church had moved away from truth and needed correction. Jesus brought that correction in the form of the Reformation.
During the Reformation, there were five areas of emphasis that emerged with great significance. It is from these same five Latin phrases that we get our foundational statement of faith.
Sola Deo Gloria
We believe that God has not only called us as a church to serve our community in Lakeway / Bee Cave, but to also be a base to work from into the Greater Austin area, the State of Texas, our nation and into the nations of the world, just like the church we see in the New Testament (see the church in Ephesus, Acts 19:1-27; the church in Antioch, Acts 11 – 14).
We do this through partnership, mainly through the trans-local team of New Covenant Ministries International (NCMI).
We also partner with R Church in Roatan, Honduras and send a team every year to minister into the life of the church, its ministries, and help build facilities and other practical matters.
