The offer came after Rodgers spent two seasons at the helm, leading Liverpool to a second-place finish in the Premier League and to a place in the Champions League next season.
The manager says he is "both humbled and privileged" by the chance to extend his stay at the club.
"I am very happy to build on the foundations we have built over the last two years and now we move onto the next phase which I believe will be as exciting, challenging and rewarding," he said.
Rodgers added: "I would like to place on record my thanks to the players and staff, who have been absolutely brilliant for me since the day I started at this great football club.
"I am grateful to our owners and senior management team who have supported me and who share my vision of how we can progress on the field.
"Finally, I must thank the supporters who are at the heart of everything we do here."
We'll now move into the next phase. We're into the Champions League. Our dream and goal is to win the Barclays Premier League - that's what we want to do.
The announcement was made by Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, on Monday.
Principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner said: "We are very fortunate to have a hugely talented individual leading our football performance and in whom we place our trust to deliver the vision we share for Liverpool Football Club.
"Brendan is at the heart of what we, as an ownership group, are trying to achieve on the pitch.
"This season has reaffirmed everyone's belief that we can bring football success to Liverpool and we are all committed to working together to achieve that.
"Players and supporters have made it clear how important Brendan is to our success and so to have him commit to us for the long term is a great boost for everyone going forward."
