La Roca Church is the Hispanic Campus Church of Central Wesleyan Church, a community where God is honored and praised with passion.
We are a Christian community that we have dedicated ourselves to worship and work as a congregation, according to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ and his apostles; (1 Tim. 4:16). Calling ourselfs Christians; (Acts 11:26). It is true that God has not finished his work on us. But as members of the church, we go to the Bible for everything we practice.
One of the main emphasis in our congregation is that we are a family. We are a group of people who come from all over Latin America, people who have abandoned their land, their family, their roots, their loved ones and come here to start a new life. The least we can offer as a church is a place where we all love one another, understand each other, accept each other and watch over each other.
