This Rock

September 13, 2009
Matthew 16:18 is one of the most controversial and debated scriptures in the Bible. Who is This Rock?

Thou art Peter    Petros (Greek)A small stone or pebble
Upon this Rock     Petras (Greek) A massive rock
I will build My Church    A declaration from the Lord for eternity

There are 3 interpretations for this passage:
This Rock      Peter’s confession that Jesus is Lord
This Rock      The Person of Peter
This Rock      The Lord Jesus Christ
The Church of The Lord Jesus Christ cannot be built upon the individual confession of a man. For the confessions of men are only as strong as it’s confessor.

Jesus Christ is THIS ROCK!
    The only foundation strong enough to sustain His Church for eternity.

About Pastor P.M. Smith

As a youngster, P.M. Smith, desired to be a lawyer. But after completing law school and achieving success as a formidable criminal attorney, there was still a void in his heart. He fulfilled the call on his life and left the legal profession in 1983 to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and serve as full-time pastor of Huber Memorial Church in Baltimore, Maryland. Winning cases was something he did well, but winning souls for the Lord is what he does best!


Under his leadership, the church has developed a strong and vital teaching ministry for all ages and a Christian co-educational school, H.O.P.E. Academy. He is the recipient of numerous awards and citations, and is a visible shepherd and servant in the community. He and his wife Delores have two children, Tehma & Ade.

Pastor Smith encourages every Child of God, every Soldier of the Cross of Christ to...don't compare...don't complain...don't compete...don't quit...Just Continue!
