Newcomers to The Rock of Bay County will notice that we refer to God as "Yahweh" and “Yahshua” as His Son. So why do we use those names? Here's the short answer: Our Heavenly Father desires an intimate, personal relationship with each of us (after all, that’s the reason He created Adam in the first place!) and it is only in intimacy that He can teach us, love us, and reveal His character. In turn, we reciprocate that desire by acknowledging that he is our breath, our source, the One who sustains every living thing. We have chosen to use the Names of Yahweh and Yahshua as an intimate expression of our longing to be closer to Him.
