About Rockford First
Here at Rockford First, we are committed to the pursuit of God, authentic relationships, and a life of purpose. That's why we have intentionally designed this place to create environments for all to find God. Whether that's in the Sanctuary, Kid's Chapel in AkolooLand, or enjoying service while sipping a latte in Stuart's Coffee Company, there's a place for everyone!

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP)
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired.
What do we DO while we are in the middle of our waiting and hoping, our expecting?
1 Corinthians 13:12,13 (MSG)
We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.
Psalm 71:14,15 (AMP)
But as for me, I will wait and hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more.
My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And of Your [deeds of] salvation all day long,
For their number is more than I know.
