We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Virtual Ministry? What is that? Two valid questions. Let’s try to answer.
In our view, God is the God of all that is. He is the God of everything seen and unseen. He is the God of the Universe, including the Metaverse. Partnered with and located on “The One Jam Christian Life Grid”, a virtual community grid on the Open Sim Network, we at "The Rock Foundation Ministries" (T.R.F.), see the emergence of virtual world platforms, such as The Open Sim Network, Second Life, Sansar, VR Chat and many others, as an opportunity to tell others of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. At their core, these are social and communication platforms. Being so, there are many thriving groups and communities, from every conceivable walk of life and interest, that have flourished across the many platforms. We seek to be part of the growing Christian communities that have also sprung up on these services.
We consider ourselves missionaries to the metaverse and have adapted many traditional missiological strategies for virtual communities. We know that this strategy works because TRF Ministries ran successfully for many years in Second Life, a pioneer in virtual world grids. On the Second Life grid, TRF Ministries ran several outreach programs. There was church services on Sundays, TRF Radio regularly broadcasted from their studios and for events at Club Remnants, a Christian night club ran by TRF Ministries for over 10 years. There was also outreach to large, established Second Life Communities. We were one of the largest 7Seas Fishing contest hosts on Second Life, catering to one of the largest gaming communities on the grid. We also made our facilities available for use by other Christians groups to host their events and studies.
After working in partnership with other leading Christian community groups in Second Life, such as Unity Productions, The Fire Escape, The Faith Filled Furries and Homerun radio.com for many great years, an opportunity arose. T.R.F Ministries and Homerun radio.com have partnered up to develop a Christian grid on the Open Sim Network, and to move our operations there. And so “The One Jam Christian Life Grid” was born. It is that grid, on the Open Sim Network that T.R.F Ministries is now headquartered. It is our springboard for launching our outreach into the virtual world communities like the Open Sim Network, Second Life, Sansar, an others in the future.
Being that these platforms are social by design, there are many networking systems and infrastructures already in place. Using those tools we can create a fun, inviting place with events and attractions for people on the Open Sim Network to come and enjoy. Please keep in mind that presently, we are still "under construction" and in the process of being fully operational. Then we duplicate the process on other platforms.
A non-denominational, casual, charismatic, come as you are place to worship.
After having the privilege of being able to serve the Christian community on Second Life for many rewarding years, with the move to the Open Sim Network, T.R.F. Christian Fellowship is moving it's H.Q as well and regular worship services will be starting soon.
An online radio station partnered with Homerun radio.com that offers a wide variety of genres. From Christian metal, rock and rap, to mainstream from the 60s on, T.R.F. Radio's programing is selected to uplift and inspire.
Not your daddy's Christian night club.
All who come in peace are welcome.
