When Solid Rock International (formerly Solid Rock Missions) was first beginning as an organization in the early 1990s, the desire was, and still is today, to holistically serve the poor in the Dominican Republic by focusing on all aspects of health.

SRI acknowledges that there is so much more to wellness than just physical health. We believe we are called by God's Word to care for the poor, and by doing so, are serving God himself.

Mission statement

Transforming the body, mind, and soul of the poor in the Dominican Republic.

Statement of faith

1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Samuel 7:28, Psalm 12:6, Psalm 119:42, John 27:17)

2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14, Matthew 28:19-20)

3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (1 Corinthians 15:2-4, John 1:1, John 1:15, Romans 9:5, Titus 2:13, 2 Peter 1:1, Colossians 1:19-20, Hebrews 3:17)

4. We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by the by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 3:5, Hebrews 9:14)

6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 11:25, Acts 24:15)

7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 17:20-23)
