Upon this rock takes a very literal meaning.
While I disagree that the "rock" that Christ was talking about was Peter, I have to admit that it's actually stunning on just how literally this passage has came to pass. It's a perfect example of God's faithfulness to see that all of His word is fulfilled, even the parts we think of as allegorical.
God is worthy to be praised, for He is faithful.
