Why Our Church
Rock Rio is a Spirit-filled, prophetic, non-denominational Christian fellowship. It is an apostolic church plant of the Rock Christian Fellowship (Pastor Mike Naranjo) in Espanola, New Mexico.

In 2007, Pastors Tom and Becky Bozone were sent out to the Albuquerque area to start life groups in Moriarty and Rio Rancho where Rock Rio Christian Fellowship was eventually established. Moving from garage to community center for a year, rental space in a strip mall for three years, and finally, a gymnasium—our current location —the church has become a house of deep teaching, intercession and prayer, prophecy, healing, and deliverance.

After experiencing a radical Damascus Road-style salvation, Pastor Tom worked five years as New Mexico State Director of the Natl. Association of Christian Educators/Citizens for Excellence in Education while attending the Bible Teaching Center in Albuquerque. He was Associate Pastor for ten years at The Rock Christian Fellowship in Espanola, where he served in the administration of a pre-school, K-12 academy, men’s home, women’s home and several church-related businesses. He and Pastor Becky have theology degrees from Legacy Bible College. Pastor Tom and Pastor Becky have developed a deep love for this community and seek the Lord’s guidance for growing impact and influence as they establish God’s Kingdom. The Holy Spirit has established the vision for Rock Rio Christian Center and the pursuit of that vision is their highest priority aside from their personal relationships with Jesus.

Statement of Faith

God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit

It is the testimony of both Testaments and of the Christian Church that God is both One and Triune. The Biblical revelation testifies that there is only one God and that He is eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God the Father

God the Father is the Creator and Sustainer of all things, who created the universe in love to respond to Himself. He created man in His own image for fellowship and calls man back to Himself through Christ after the rebellion and fall of man.

The Son

Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him, all things were made. For man’s redemption, He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary and henceforth He is forever one Christ with two natures, God and Man, in one Person.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord, and giver of life, who was active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature, and conforms us to the image of Christ. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by tongues, joy, praise and other inward and outward manifestations and gifts.

The Scripture
We affirm that the Bible containing the Old and New Testaments is alone the only infallible inspired Word of God and that its authority is ultimate and final and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from, or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.
The Atonement
Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, but its benefits are only applicable to those who receive Jesus as Lord and personal Savior. Healing, body, soul, and spirit, is provided for in the atonement, as well as, all of God’s provision for His saints, but these must be appropriated.
Salvation
The Word of God declares clearly that salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son Jesus, and is appropriated by faith. Salvation is affected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification), and personal acceptance of Him into one’s life as Lord and Savior (regeneration). The new life in Christ includes the privileges of adoption and inheritance in the Kingdom of God’s beloved Son. Salvation is an act of free will in response to God’s personal love for mankind. It is secure in the eternal unchanging commitment of God, who does not lie and is forever the same. However, the security of His nature does not remove the individual’s free will, to renounce the love, and the grace he has received. Salvation is not a one-time event that frees us from hell, but an active lifestyle of loving obedience, and service to Jesus Christ our savior.
The Christian Life
We believe that the Scriptures portray the life of the saint in this world to be one of balance between what is imputed to us as Christians and what is imparted to us according to our faith and maturity. Hence God’s provision for His children is total and the promises are final and are forever. The shortcomings of the individual and of the Church are because of the still progressing sanctification of the saints. The Christian life is filled with trials, tests, and warfare against a real

and purposeful spiritual enemy. For those abiding in Christ until their death or His return, the promises of eternal blessing in the presence of God are assured. To remain faithful through all circumstances of life, it requires dependence upon the Holy Spirit, and a willingness to die to personal desires and passions.

The Church
  1. The goal of the Church is to make disciples of all nations and to present the saints complete in Christ.
  2. The Church is governed by the five fold ministry of Ephesians 4, the offices of Elder and Deacon, as well as other offices mentioned in Scripture.
  3. Church policy is a balance between congregation and Eldership authority, emphasizing the final authority of the church leadership.
  4. It is essential to the life of the Church that scriptural patterns of discipline be practiced and that oversight for Church discipline, individual and corporate, be exercised by the leadership of the Church.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
The Word of God enjoins on the Church two perpetual ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ. The first, baptism, is the outward sign of what God has already done in the individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person belongs now to Jesus. It is an identification with Jesus and is effected in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again, and is a sign of our participation in Him. Both institutions are restricted to those who are believers.
Eschatology
We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the Saints, the Millennium, and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ. We affirm with the Bible the final state of the New Heavens and New Earth.
