Why We Exist

Love God, Love Each Other, and Love our Community. We believe that Jesus lived as a sacrifice for our sins enabling us to live in freedom found only through Him.
Jesus gave us His incredible example of loving other unconditionally. We seek to do the same.

He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.


Church is Family

Rising Hope is a different kind of church. We emphasize a genuine family environment. You'll know others and be known here.

We dream of having a diverse congregation that reflects a picture of Heaven. Until then, we pray that God will grow our church to be more like Him in every way!
