Rohi Christian Church

Our History

We started in 1999 as a Bible Study Group that met at the East Valley Family YMCA in San Jose,
California. Our founder Jeffery S. Heard had a vision for a multi-ethnic, economically diverse, non-denominational, Spirit-filled, church that would reach the community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

On Easter of 2000, we launched our first worship service and began to have services every Sunday. In
2008, our founder Jeffery Heard passed away suddenly and his wife, Sheyna was asked to pastor the
congregation. Our desire is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who will make disciples.

Whether you’re hungry or hurt, lonely or lost, full of questions or looking for a home, there’s a place for
you at our church. We want to help you find a place where you can connect with others in your stage
of life. Our desire is to disciple you to think & live for God. As we continue to invest resources into
reaching people in Silicon Valley & beyond, we pray that our church can make a Kingdom impact at a
global & local level.

Our Vision


We encourage a real and authentic personal relationship with Jesus Christ through worship services, personal devotion, baptism and prayer


Now, that there is an authentic relationship and change happening, we encourage believers to serve in the local church and begin to give back.


We believe that change happens in community through our small groups, discipleship classes, webinars, workshops and special events


We encourage every believer to go and tell others about Jesus Christ through personal evangelism and outreach events.

What We Believe



We believe in God the Father, the Creator, the Eternal One, who has infinite power, knows all things, is present everywhere, and is unchangeable, God the Father is love, and He expressed His Love for us by sending His son, Jesus Christ, to save humanity.


We believe in God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin, led a sinless life, died on the cross for the sins of humanity, and rose again on the third day. He is ascended to the right hand of the Father and will one day come again.


We believe in God the Holy Spirit.  He regenerates and indwells the believer, baptizing them into the body of Christ, after regeneration he fills the believer with power. The environment allows the believer to operate in the gifts of the Spirit, as the Spirit wills, so the church can fulfill its mission.


We believe in salvation by God’s grace, through faith in what Jesus Christ accomplished, on the cross. Salvation is available to all who believe, who turn from sin, and give their whole lives to God through Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father.


We believe that the Bible, both Old testament and New testament, is God’s holy word. It is inspired by God. The Bible is infallible. Its authority is final and eternal. God’s Holy Word is the ultimate source of doctrine, instruction, and correction for humanity


The church is the spiritual Body of Christ. It is our role as a local church to disciple God’s people into maturity in the Faith. God has called the church to make disciples who make disciples and to go and share God’s word with those who do not know Jesus.
