We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as the Saviour of the world. Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is found by placing our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again. Baptism "Water" is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe there is eternal life after death.
Our vision is to empower young people and groom them to be torchbearers for Christ.
We envision in partnering with God in raising a generation that carries the atmosphere of Heaven wherever
they go and work at ushering in the Kingdom culture in all their pursuits.
At REC, taking the love of Christ to every corner of the nation is at the very heart of the Church vision. In this direction, mission trips to Bihar have been undertaken. REC has adopted 300 villages to share the good news of the Gospel and extend initiatives that lead to community development. The REC Missions team has worked at installing borewells, church planting and sharing God’s love in these mission trips.
Our foundational belief lies in the Trinitarian understanding of the Godhead. We believe that God exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our teachings are based on the premise that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is completely God, but chose to become completely human, to bring mankind back into union with God and to restore God’s plan for mankind. We believe that Jesus died for our sins and rose again on the third day, defeating death. Salvation is found by placing our faith in the finished work of Christ at Calvary. Baptism "Water" is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in eternal life and the fact that experiential knowledge and intimacy with God, is the pathway to an eternity in Heaven.
• Christ at the Centre • People focus • Leading by example • A multi-pronged approach to discipleship
Lead Pastor- Reenukumar:
Pastor Reenukumar was born in a well versed family which had no history of anybody involved in the ministry. Being an MBA graduate from LIBA with an excellent career record with fortune 500 companies, he dropped the nets and quit his high paying job to pursue the call predestined by His Heavenly Father. While he was in Australia, the Lord touched him and revealed His bigger and nobler plans he had for him. In Melbourne, Pastor Reenukumar started serving in an AG church where the Lord moulded him for this greater purpose. Through fervent prayers, and with guidance from the Lord, Pastor Reenukumar returned with his family to India and started the Rock Eternal Ministries.
Ps. Reenukumar is currently the senior Pastor of the Rock Eternal church, which focuses on disciple making and establishing lives in Christ. His vision is to raise leaders and groom them to be transformers for Christ. The Lord has been using him mightily across the globe amidst churches, organizations, educational institutions and various ministerial bodies. Ps Reenukumar reaches out to numerous people through concerts, crusades, television and social media. His tamil Gospel Album Kanmalai has been a trend setter in the Christian fraternity in touching and changing lives.
Ps. Reenukumar along with his wife Sis. Lydia and daughter Rhea, continue to serve the Lord and reach out to people as an embodiment of Christ.
“I will sing and make music” - Psalm 108:1
Praising God is a way of honouring and acknowledging God for His mighty and awesome acts. Praise gives glory to God and opens us up to a deeper union with Him. It turns our attention off of our problems. We focus our minds on God and proclaim His goodness; we reflect His glory back to Him. Praise, not only in honouring God but it is a powerful weapon one can use in his/her daily life to overcome all the acts of satan. God has immensely blessed us in leading thousands of people into His presence through praise and worship concerts.
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden” – Matthew 5:14
With these words always in our heart we focus on discipleship. A Christian disciple is a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ. Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christ like. This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God.
"Be witnesses to the ends of the earth” – Acts 1:8
With the great commission given by God to make disciples and to spread His word to all people, we started the SMS ministry. The Word of God with a small practical illustration is sent to our friends in Christ. It has been such a blessing to many; God directly spoke to many people through this daily devotional SMS. People who were about to take wrong decisions, who were looking for directions in their life, who were seeking answers to their unsolved questions, God spoke directly into their problems/questions. Started between friends in a small circle, now it reaches to many unbelievers across the country enabling so many to come close to God and lead a faith filled life giving everything into God’s hand. Give us your/your friend’s number if you want us to send the daily verse that God gives us.
In the streams of our ministry, God has also routed us to the professionals in the corporate world. Our emphasis is on ‘Marrying Management with the Bible’. Bible being the origination of Management, we highlight the managerial characteristics, principles and guidelines mentioned in the Bible. Our reach has been to the individual and collective corporate fellowships. God is using the knowledge and skills of Ps. Reenukumar as he also has a professional background and this is a blessing as it helps reach better.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young” - 1 Timothy 4:12
Younger generation are so vibrant and are always thirst to do something differently. In the process, the enemy misleads them into destructive ways. REC pays special attention on this particular bunch of people to direct them in Lord’s way. We reach out to schools, colleges and young groups/fellowships and share God’s Word with practical illustrations so that His Word speaks power in their life thus bringing in a transformation in their lives.
Children always play an important role everywhere - be it in the family, church, society etc. REC believes that the seed sown will root our children in Christ with the right Word, empowering them to become tomorrow’s leaders. This ministry is being handled with utmost care with lots of prayer and preparation put into it to make our children grow in the Lord. And, children at REC are always rest assured having fun in the presence of the Lord.
