I want us to recognize this month as values month; that is, we want to focus on what we value here at Church on the Rock Ocho Rios. Values are like fingerprints. Nobody’s the same but you leave your imprint all over everything you do. At COTR, our mission and core values drive our culture and are the foundation of our practice. We measure every decision against these standards. When our values are clear to us, making decisions become easier; therefore, it’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are. The word PURPOSE helps to clarify our values here at Church on the Rock.


We will achieve our purpose through…

Pursuing Intimacy with God
Our highest purpose is to love the Lord and worship Him.
Understanding and Obeying God’s Word
Life transformation takes place when God’s word is comprehended and applied.
Relationships marked by Love, Honour, Acceptance and Forgiveness
God expects us to have relationships that glorify Him and to treat others in the way He treats us.
Personal Evangelism
The lost matter to God and therefore matter to us.
Openness, Accountability and Integrity
God is interested in our character development which includes openness to change, accountability to one another and integrity in our conduct.
Servant Leadership
Jesus is our ultimate example of leadership through serving.
Excellence in Service
Excellence honours God and inspires people.
