On November 14, 2014, a group of 16 believers met to discuss spiritual matters. We came to realize the importance of continuing to grow and mature spiritually with the freedom to worship God in spirit and in truth. We were seeking to: (1) increase our knowledge and understanding of God’s word; (2) increase our practice of Christ-like qualities; and, (3) increase our faith and trust in God. In essence, we were seeking to be Christ-like in our interactions with one another, our families and our community. Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church was born out of those beliefs. On December 5, 2014, Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church was incorporated.
We called Rev. Thomas A. Keys as the Pastor-Teacher of Solid Rock. On January 4, 2015, we held our first worship service. On February 1, 2015, we held our first baptism. On March 22, 2015, we held our first baby dedication. On October 2, 2016, we moved into our new temporary building at 8000 Derry Street. God has blessed us immeasurably. We are free to worship God in the manner that He intended for us to worship Him. In December 2016, SRMBC purchased 4.6 acres of land at 2400 Locust Lane in the Edgemont section of Susquehanna Township in suburban Harrisburg
Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church is open to worshippers of all ages and backgrounds. We lead our congregation in worship, deepening the connection to God, understanding the teachings of Christ, and ultimately to a vibrant faith.
