WHO WE ARE
About us
Rock Solid Church is a non-denominational, Spirit-filled body of believers in Hudson, New York under the leadership of Pastor Jaron Halsted. The church began in March 1999 as a church plant out of Greenville Christian Life Center under the apostolic oversight of Pastor Ernest Fink. Pastor Halsted served at Greenville Christian Life Center for 12 years in a variety of capacities that included Head Usher, Home-Group Leader, & Youth Pastor. Alongside his wife Brenda, and three children, Pastor Halsted began the pastorate with a few families and through the faithfulness of the Lord has watched as the congregation has grown to 300 members.
The pastoral leadership of Rock Solid Church possesses a faith-filled vision for impacting the city of Hudson, Columbia County, the surrounding towns and communities, the northeast United States and other nations as the Holy Spirit directs. Missions both home and abroad are a bedrock of the ministry focus of Rock Solid Church. Foreign missions have continued to increase each year with specific involvement now in five different nations. Each year the church has sent ministry teams to aid the construction of church buildings, medical clinics, schools, homes, and orphanages in such places as Zambia, Guatemala, India, Haiti, and the Philippines. Locally, the church has a vision that includes youth and children’s outreaches, food and clothing distribution, ministry to the needy, facilities for compassionate care, training, education, recreation, and more with a daily ministry to people in need from all walks of life.
Rock Solid Church is a family-centered congregation for all ages representing people from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life. Its governmental structure is autonomous and self-governing established on the pattern of the New Testament early church. Using the Book of Acts as a blueprint, the church is structured with local ordained elders as well as the apostolic relationship with other Christian leaders outside of the congregation. The church is affiliated with Christian Life International of Albany, New York, where Pastor Halsted serves on the Presbytery Board with Pastor Ernest Fink of City Harvest Family Church in Albany, NY and Pastor Robert Ilardi of Christian Life Fellowship of Yonkers.
Core Beliefs
We believe in Salvation through belief in and confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6)
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:2,27; Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7)
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16;2 Peter 1:20,21)
We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father. (Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25)
We believe we are justified (declared righteous under the blood of Jesus) when we repent of our sins and place our trust in the finished work of the cross. (Acts 13:38,39; Romans 5:1; 1 Cor. 6:11; Mark 1:5)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in other tongues, as the Spirit gives the utterance, to be the initial evidence of this experience. We believe in the operation of the 9 gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; 1 Cor. 12:4-11)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of Jesus. (Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6)
We believe in divine healing for the body. (Acts 3:2-12; Acts 5:15,16; James 5:14-15)
We believe every blessing we receive from God comes through the merits of the atonement (Jesus’ complete sacrifice for us on Calvary). (Romans 5:11; James 1:16-17)
We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:10,11; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 1:7)
