I just wanted to let you know that the Church on the Rock in Berea, Ky didn't start out as a Church on the Rock. It has never, and will never be affiliated with any other Church on the Rock that is anywhere else in this nation.I was a member at cOTR in Longview Texas, and yes ALL COTR CHURCHES IN AMERICA WERE AT ONE TIME CONNECTED ...Larry Lea started COTR in DALLAS TEXAS in the mid 80s after going to a Kenneth Copeland rally and turning to my Aunt and saying, goddamn I could make a lot of money doing this. 3 years later, COTR starts popping up.
I was a dirt poor teenager looking for acceptance, and the SWINE at cotr shoved their form of JESUS down my throat, then left me in the cold like they do all their members when the members start to question things.
For those that are members there, re read your responses. They DRIP with contempt and pride. Your unholy teachings RUINED my spiritual life for 12 years...it was only when I started to read the obscene teachings of the church did I realize the damage cotr had caused.
COTR will recieve it's just reward.
It used to be Dixie Park Baptist Church. When they built the new building they renamed the church to Church on the Rock a Full Gospel Baptist Church.
We are not boasting nor are we being prideful. We are simply defending the flock that we are a part of, and are defending our shepherd. If you have never been to Church on the Rock in Berea, Ky, then you don't know anything about our church. Again, I will state we have never been affiliated with any other church or organization. This church has always been independent.
Also, never let what happened at a church cause you to give up on God. God did nothing to you. Remember, the people who run the churches are human like you and I are. They will make mistakes. There is no such thing as a perfect church. They all have their weaknesses and strengths, advantages and disadvantages, and good traits and bad traits.
So again, please check your facts and look into the background of a church before you start implying anything about it. Also attend it as well. Also, remember, there are a lot of churches in this nation that have the same name. They aren't affiliated. They may even have different doctrines. All that matters is if they preach and teach the uncompromised Word of God, Jesus and him Crucified and of his resurrection, and of his return, and the plan of salvation.
