What We Believe

The following are the core beliefs of Rise Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Bible

We believe the Bible is the 100% inspired, infallible Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Salvation

We believe salvation is attained only through the person and blood of Jesus Christ. (John 14:6, Romans 5:1-8)

Baptism

We believe scripture teaches water baptism as an immediate response to faith in Christ. (Acts 2:38)

The Church

The church of Jesus Christ is the collective body of people across the world who serve God through local assemblies. We believe the local church is the most powerful movement globally for enacting life change. (Acts 2:42-47)

Purpose

God has a purpose for every person. We believe that purpose is rooted in the life change that a relationship with Jesus brings to each and every one of us. Rise Church truly believes the purpose of each individual is to change the world one person at a time. 
(1 Peter 2:9)

Eternity

We were created for an eternal existence. We believe Jesus will return for His church. We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell. We believe the church is an extension of Jesus' ministry and is called to share His gospel message of hope to ransom sinners from Hell. (Romans 2:5-8)
